We came across this place by chance. Great find. Free croissant when you buy a tea / coffee. I had a carrot and ginger juice, all fresh and tasty. Good service.

Here you can enjoy a good english breakfast, with natural orange juice, for just 8,95£. Indeed, with any hot drink you get a free croisant (which is really tasty,by the way). You will have breakfast with english workers around,not a tourist place!

Close to the conference venue where I got sick of the fingerfoods served, this place became a haven for 4 days. Great (vegetarian) options, friendly staff, clean place, nice fresh food and the biggest black coffee ever:) Highly recommend. Nice homely atmosphere too, and small...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.

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
