Fun, yummy spot for breakfast right on the corner near the train. Baked goods are out of this world.

I walked past this place a number of time never giving the right attention it's deserves until recently when I was looking for a good caffe to have breakfast. The outside look of the place was what was putting me off to give it a go. Inside the place is actually very nice and cute, you can see the place... More

This Cafe has both indoor and outdoor seating. It offers breakfast till noon, and serves lunches, afternoon teas, cakes, coffees. Service can be quick but varies depending on when you go. Lovely looking cakes abound but are expensive. Recommended.

Were here the other day. The Cafe is cramped and in need of some money being spent to improve the equipment, counter, decor etc. The toilets leave a lot to be desired. Food is average and very overpriced. Don`t come here if you only got a credit card, they do not take them.

This is really the best cafe around here. The cakes are superb, the coffee is decent rather than outstanding. Prices are rather expensive for hot food but the quality is high. Had a lovely shepherds pie today but the portion was too small.

On the face of it you might just walk past this place without a second glance as your mind wanders to the delights of Kew Gardens and the joys that await there (go there at Christmas for the best experience). Anyways, don't bypass Kew Greenhouse as it is properly amazing. The ambience is delightful and the food is off the... More

Nice looking place, used to be very busy but now nearly empty when I turned up. Nice looking cakes but nothing is priced . Ordered a Meringue lemon cake slice. When it arrived the slice cut from a whole cake was far too thin . To charge £5.25 is a joke. Final bill for 2 coffees cake and scone £11.60,.... More

The Greenhouse of Kew Where ambiance comes in every hue of green And the atmosphere is mellow, elegant and jazz plays low A place where your poached eggs arrive done to perfection where you'll feel serene And a sense of calm will gently grow... Whenever I have to come to Kew I come here. The service is swift, charming and... More

The coffee was good the cakes attractive, the ambiance a little crowded. The prices are a little high for what's on offer, and it gives the impression of same-ole-same-ole. On the way to the Garden gates so a high volume of passing traffic. Not special and though I live locally I've only bothered to go once.

Thank jaysheen
