It’s a lovely little shop, but only if you can devote the time. We stopped in for breakfast on our way from the Holiday Inn to the station. We were searing quickly, but that’s the only thing that happened fast. We waited 30-45 minutes easily...More

This is a good old fashioned tea shop in the heart of Kensington which serves value for money breakfasts & light meals. I had the chicken Caesar salad for supper which was enormous.

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
