It looked like such a sweet little breakfast place from the street and we immediately thought we had found a gem. The food was nothing more than ok, but unfortunately the staff was way worse. Not a smile could be traced and we felt pretty...More

We went for breakfast there our first morning. The shop has average food. The service needs to be improved as there is not enough servers. The servers not only serve tables but also have to work the cash register. The tables are very small.

This was right next to our hotel so we came twice. The breakfast was tasty but there could have been more of it. This made it not the best value for money. Also can get busy and spaces are tight

The Muffin Man Tea Shop is most easily accessed via the High Street Kensington Underground Station. We (a couple) were there on a Sunday morning at around 9+ and it was already a full house! We waited for about 10 minutes before they seated us...More

This is a little gem. Their cakes are amazing, their coffee is average. They do have nice tea though. Make sure to get the carrot cake which is apparently their specialty. Its a bitty though that every time we go there they seem to be...More

Perfect place for a quiet cuppa away from the bustling high street. Wonderful home cooked food and nice service. Just what you need when you're a tired traveler.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

I'm not sure to be entirely honest although there was a man with a laptop working away when we were in one of the mornings. Perhaps it might tell you on their website. It's more a place for having a quick bite! Sorry... More
