Amazingly badly organized lines wrap forever around two side of a food station, where choices are expensive and very limited: unappealing looking sausage rolls, limp little quiches, some sandwich/wraps and cakes. The cakes looked delicious, and the one I got, coffee walnut, was deliciously home...More

Ideal option if you are in a rush or short of time. Can get very busy though as it's next to the main Victoria Gate and the gift shop

Another place to stop for food, snacks and drinks during a visit to Kew Gardens. Lots of choice and combined with the shop.

We stopped for lunch here, and I must say I was totally dissapointed in the lack of choice and variety of food! Very expensive for average sandwiches/baguettes. I have never felt so ripped off in all my life.

The snacks and cakes here were very tasty, and a pleasant surprise after the Orangery (also in Kew Gardens).

Had tea and scone while visiting Kew Gardens. The food was ok and the prices not too bad for a captive audience.

Undoubtably it is outside which is significant here, with views over the gardens. We visited on a cold breezy day. It is a coffee shop with a garden centre attached. Service was relatively quick and efficient.

Signs in Kew Gardens say that they recycled 250 tonnes of rubbish in a year. I'm not surprised as there wasn't a real plate, cup, glass or piece of cutlery to be found in the Victoria Plaza Cafe. At these prices it is reasonable to...More

Ridiculously expensive sandwiches & cakes, and basic sausage rolls served on tiny paper plates. Coffee in paper cups. Staff are trying hard but seem untrained. Definitely NOT an improvement on the previous caterers. Long queue for a hot drink as the whole operation is disorganised....More
