This Place only Accepts cash as payment. The service is Nice, but the Place is oldfashioned and a bit tired. We did have scones and sandwich, but probably the cakes are better than sandwich and scones at this Place,

A delightful place to find. We’ll be back tomorrow to savour the beautifully prepared fancy sandwiches and cake. I doubt we will find better.

Nice little cafe with a quality cooked breakfast. Portions could have been more generous but that might just be me. The tea and coffee offerings were good and scones etc looked excellent.

Tea made properly from leaf...no tea bags here. Salmon and cream cheese sandwiches misnamed...should be cream cheese with the tiniest slice of salmon. Orders should be taken singly and put to the kitchen rather than in multiples. Overseas visitors don't understand the menu so you...More

Came here for a little tea and cake with a friend. The tea selection is lovely! Recommend the Jasmine ones. Also had some Victoria sponge which was nice. It's super close to high Street Kensington station and it's very quiet. Just remember it's cash only!...More

Unfortunately me and my partner had a bad experience at this Tea Room recently. We were staying in the area and thought we’d try here for breakfast. It was very busy when we visited which we thought was a good sign. We placed our order...More

We had breakfast here 2 days running. Very reasonably priced, good food. Would recommend a visit. They have a good range of teas and cakes.

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
