On a recent stay in this area my friend and I tracked down this amazing place to have breakfast as soon as it opened on Sunday morning. It is obviously extremely popular and was nearly full within half an hour! Fresh orange juice and the coffee were excellent and choice of food extensive. English breakfast was hearty and well cooked... More

Fantastic little cafe away from the hustle of the high street, the coffee is by far the best I have tasted around the area & the pancakes with berries and yogurt are divine! Everything is reasonably priced & the staff are attentive & friendly.

Food was ok. A little pricey and the staff were NOT very friendly or welcoming. Could do with a more friendly approach and opening up a bigger better menu for a more reasonable price. It's worth walking back 30 meters to wholefoods instead. They have a better selection of fine food upstairs.

A friend and I arrived about 11.45am on a Friday. We weren't greeted with a polite 'hello', instead an unwelcoming 'we're no longer saving breakfast'. Ok no problem, we were happy to pick from the lunch menu. However, the experience was so disappointing that I wish we'd gone elsewhere. Cramped tables, bland soup, poor service. We had to ask for...

Good breakfast, but a bit pricey. There are other restaurants in the area with great food for lower prices.

I have been to this restaurant on a few occasions and it has been hit and miss. I have always felt the portions were small and the food was somewhat uninspired but I'd go back every few months because it has a good location and there is a dearth of non-chain restaurants in the area. just to give it one...

We visited KSK this morning for breakfast rather than have breakfast in a hotel we were staying in and we were surprised, but not in the best of ways. Sadly, we felt that the restaurant isn't as good as it was the last time we paid a visit a few years ago. The service was quick and friendly. The waitress... More

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
