Came here for breakfast and it was lovely. So chilled and the food was great. Their avocado toast comes with a cumin seasoning and is just lovely.

We caught up with friends here for lunch and it was a great choice. I had a turmeric latte to start and it was good. Then we had various open toasted sandwiches on sour dough or gluten free toast. They were yum. Different lovely choices...More

Le Pain is a very pleasant place for breakfast...with outdoor and indoor seating. Their Almond Croissants and Pain du Chocolat are fabulous, as is their coffee served in handle-less cups. You will almost think you are in Paris and not London!

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
