the guy who served me was really rude and talked down to me and was just generally very condescending. not only to me but also to the person sat next to me. just didn't care. was also annoyed that i had no choice but to have a tip added onto the bill 12.5% so i had to reward his crap... More

I went to Caffe Concerto for a pastry and a coffee before having a wander around central London. After being seated we waited 15 minutes before asking for someone to take our order. My partner and I ordered 2 coffees and croissants, of which they had ran out. 20 minutes of waiting and zero drinks being brought over, our neighboring... More

We stopped off at Cafe Concerto in Kensington for a coffee and cake. The service was terrible - the food took ages to come and when it did it wasn't what we ordered. The lattes were cold and even when they were replaced they weren't much better. The food (when it came eventually) was nice but by this point we... More

Called in to the High Street Kensington cafe after a few on the slog for Christmas gifts. So a cup of tea was required. Met at the door and shown to a table and menu presented. Looking around all sorts of fantastic pastries and cakes being loving devoured. The selection was mind boggling so it was rude not to partake.... More

We called in for breakfast mid-morning and were delighted to find it was still being served. The full English came with sausage, beans, egg, bacon, mushroom, hash brown, grilled tomato and toast. Nicely cooked and tasty, though the toast was a bit "tired". The coffee could have been stronger - but that's a criticism which could be levelled at the... More

The place looked great from outside and it's quite Pricey, very disappointed to bite into my croissant for it to be so dry and stale. I won't go back.

Shocking. Shocking. Shocking. Probably the worst service I've ever had. And a useless manager running around like a headless chicken; an ineffective as he was disorganised. He did all he could to avert his eyes from every customer for fear that someone would ask him something. Travellers, avoid this place and escape certain disappointment.

We were attracted in by the beautiful cakes in the window and the enticing decor, but the food didn't live up to expectations. We ordered afternoon tea....the cakes were lovely but the scones were dry and tasteless and the bread on the sandwiches was borderline stale with minimal filling. Not worth the £40 they charged.

Thank Sallie M
