I love the muffin man because it is a lovely old fashioned British tea shop. It's the perfect spot to sit for a couple of hours and journal with a pot of tea and some scones. It's not a place for anyone in a hurry...More

many people eat breakfast here to avoid the high prices in the neighboring hotels, so it gets quite busy in the morning. they serve quite decent breakfasts and muffins here, so if you don't expect more it's good.

I love scones thus giving it a 4 stars. However, the other breakfast menu is quite common and nothing special. Small place so reach early for a table!

Awesome muffins and scones. Crisp on the exterior and soft inside. If you are going with a group of friends, do order a variety to try!

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
