Good breakfast. Tight quarters. Many come in just to grab a pastry and coffee. Seating available for those wishing to eat. Breakfast options are mostly eggs, toast. Did have pancakes. As well as raisins scones and tea. Reasonable prices.

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

a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing

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