My husband’s strawberry slice and latte were good, my afternoon tea (scones with clotted cream and pot of tea) were awful. Scones were not fresh and tea pot was in sad shape. Service was poor although Manageress seemed interested and reasonably efficient.

We called in for a mid-morning coffee and snack. The coffee was excellent and the pastries delicious. Staff were well organised and service was quick and efficient. Prices are quite reasonable for the product and service they provide especially in a prime location.

I have been visiting the Knightsbridge café for decades and love the place, the food is good at anytime with a wide choice and the cakes are to die for.

This has been in Old Compton Street for decades, though now there are branches all over the country. However tempting anything is here, I can never bresist their Raspberry Tarts; they are the best I know. The pastry is excellent and the Creme Patissiere perfect,...More
