I pop in here for a coffee on occasion. They do a very decent flat white. As far as I know there is not a better specialist coffee shop nearby that does better.

The service is good, also my colleagues quite like the coffee from this shop. 4 cakes for 10 pound and one for 2.99. Most of cake are too sweet for me. However, the strawberry one is gorgeous. The sour from the strawberry bring the cake...More

Stayed close by and went for breakfast each morning here. It's a little snug inside but this didn't cause any problems. Always busy, good menu, reasonably priced and although I didn't partake the cakes and desserts looked amazing.

Quick lunch for two. Cappuccinos, Croque Monsieur. Place was quite busy. Food was good, service acceptable, possibly a bit slow but given how busy it was, understandable. Good for exactly what we were looking for-a quick lunch.

St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing

I only reviewed the café. I have no idea about reservations. I am pretty sure that you would be able to have a nice afternoon tea there.

I've only ever walked in. I don't know if they book. It can be busy at times but is fine for tea.
