We stopped here for breakfast and were disappointed. Gentleman behind the counter was very polite and working frantically to get people their food but the end result was spotty: delicious fresh squeezed orange juice, sausage in the full English breakfast was kind of funky, croissants...More

We stayed at a hotel without breakfast around the corner and ate breakfast here. It's located on a nice street. It's a small place but very cosy. The breakfast was great many options and the staff friendly and attentive.

Just a block from Gloucester Tube Station, Forum is a no-frills cafe filled with locals. Good basic food, well prepared and quickly served nice and hot. Hot full breakfast or baked goods. Fresh fruit and good coffee and tea. Full English breakfast was under €9....More

So the reviews for this cafe probably describe it adequately. Fortunately, I dropped in for a late dinner during a quiet moment. The cafe was mostly empty, so I was somewhat leery of my choice. However, I was rewarded with a tasty and healthy meal...More

We just wanted to sit down and have breakfast before heading out site seeing. This place is a free for all for seating with complete disorganization. The few open tables we saw when we walked in were quickly snatched up by people who came in...More

Wanted a local quick breakfast - very poor organisation and miserable staff. Most of the tables were cluttered with dirty used plates and cups, and I saw people walk in and out again as there appeared no where to sit! Excellent freshly squeezed orange juice...More

Great full English breakfast with freshly squeezed oranges and a free croissant with a coffee. No wonder it's always full.

This is a good place for breakfast with many combinations of the old time favourites. It also serves a good variety of hot and cold food at relatively reasonable prices. The quality of the coffee varies depending on who serves it but it's normally ok....More

Served a cold English breakfast ,by cold miserable staff. When I asked for a hot breakfast it came back fully microwaved egg and toast as well.

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
