We called here on arrival, prior to visiting the Impressionists Exhibition. This is a large cafe in the basement? and we were able to get a table on a Saturday afternoon about 2ish. To be honest I was not and am not greatly worried about...More

The cake was delicious but two coffees and cake for £15! Pleasant surrounds and at least there were plenty of seats.

Time spent in Pimlico is a slower-paced affair than
most other Central London neighbourhoods. This largely
residential area orderly arranged beside the Thames,
is a treasure trove of quaint pubs, subtle
architectural charms and local boutiques. Here, art
