The place looks cozy and they have several bread sell in the store. Shortbreads are crunchy and bit sweet but not too sweet. But croissant is very small and doesn't taste and look freshly baked as it is more like damp. Prices are high for...More

The Poilane bread is excellent. I always buy a half and have them cut into quarters then sliced, one goes in the freezer for later. The walnut bread is pricey but also delicious. I haven't tried the cakes but the Croissants are among the best...More

I would definitely recommend this cafè to anyone. The location is great, it's just behind Sloane Square, one of the nicest squares in London. As a consequence it is really easy to get there as one can take the tube to Sloane Square station and...More

Our hotel is just around the corner from Poilane in Cadogan Gardens. We like to go there for breakfast as the bread is so great. It is also nice for snacks and bites. At times it can be quite busy and service a bit slow....More

great bread and fresh juices ambiance was also great and perfect for a brunch or coffee in the afternoon service was a bit lousy but nothing too bad

Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic
residences in London, sophisticated and upscale
Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine
dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll
worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a
leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque
and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and
the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw
