Coffee was excellent and the ham and cheese croissant hit the spot before we hit the streets. Right around the corner from the underground.

We had lunch in this small but popular, friendly and efficient cafe today. The portions of salmon, rice and salad as well as pasta and chicken, accompanied by bread/butter, were large and tasty.

Every year at Easter, I have a three-week work contract in South Kensington, and my employer puts me up at a local hotel (recently the excellent Holiday Inn Forum). As I have to find my own evening meals, I am interested in tasty food balanced by a reasonable cost, and I found the Café Forum back in 2012, and have... More

This is one place where you would like to come in everyday for breakfast. Fresh & quick, you can get good choices of English breakfast along with fresh juices & coffee and a free croissant in the mornings.

We had breakfast here 3 mornings while on holiday. They have a good variety of breakfast choices, from the Full English breakfast, to other hot choices, to pastries. They offer a free croissant with every hot drink ordered in the morning. Loved that! Service was friendly and quick.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
