We went there the otrher day to have a light dinner and we had to wait for half an hour for a couple of grilled croissant. Also the waiter was one of the moodiest and rudest I have ever find. I highly recommend to avoid this place if possible. There are plenty of better places around.

You can get better breakfasts and teas at other places, but not at these prices. The restaurants are cramped and get crowded, but we found the service friendly and the food and drink good value for money

Busy place and not as quaint as my local one in Norwich. Our scones came toasted!!!!! Not sure I was even asked if I wanted them that way - that said the staff were friendly. There are also lots of other places to have afternoon tea around that area!

Called in here at lunchtime on a busy day between Christmas and New Year. Very busy and we had to wait to get a table. Staff very busy and we ended up being given our hot chocolates which were very nice but then waiting ages for the cake each we had ordered. Eventually had to ask the waitress for the... More

Nice place to eat, a little crowded. Loo's very tiny. Also they had deliveries through the restaurant the day we were there.

We were staying round the corner from here and we normally pop in for something to eat as it's good wholesome food. I think it's the original one, it lacks a bit of finesse but has been refurbished since our last visit. The staff here are always friendly. Great coffee and the scrambled eggs with crispy bacon on granary bread... More

The nice thing about this place is that they make coffee in the way that you like it so when I asked for a flat white but shorter on the milk they obliged and I had a very nice coffee indeed (although probably not technically a flat white).

Looks great when you look through the window. Really poor taste of all the cakes. Staff harrassed and over worked. Often miserable. Table so close that staff always bang in to you or the table. Fodder for tourists who dont know better.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
