We stopped by after visiting Kew Gardens and were very impressed. Last orders are at 6.30 pm but we were happy to have an early evening meal. The food was very good and lovely surroundings.

After paying Megabucks for coffee, flapjack and then a lunch we were keen not to be overcharged again at Kew Botanical gardens. So we called in to The Kew Greenhouse cafe near Kew Gardens station. There we enjoyed a refreshing pot of tea with nearly enough tea for 3 cups and a choice of about 20 varieties. We also enjoyed... More

Wonderful, cute, fun place to dine. Although they only accept CASH/POUNDS. The desserts looked great but I was too full to have any. Salad was great. My friend had the best mac and cheese ever !

A picturesque corner café that was established in 1895. The food was freshly prepared and enjoyable. Generally OK but the place suffers from being very tired and lacked ambience.

Bought a take-away flat white. It was watery, bitter and undrinkable. One sip and I threw it away. No idea what the food is like, but I won't be going back.

The place itself is lovely but food is average or below, service is bad. We ended up eatign here because there werent a lot of other options. Another annoyance is that in this day and age they still dont take any kind of cards - I am always suspicious of establishments like these.

Fun, yummy spot for breakfast right on the corner near the train. Baked goods are out of this world.

I walked past this place a number of time never giving the right attention it's deserves until recently when I was looking for a good caffe to have breakfast. The outside look of the place was what was putting me off to give it a go. Inside the place is actually very nice and cute, you can see the place... More

This Cafe has both indoor and outdoor seating. It offers breakfast till noon, and serves lunches, afternoon teas, cakes, coffees. Service can be quick but varies depending on when you go. Lovely looking cakes abound but are expensive. Recommended.

Were here the other day. The Cafe is cramped and in need of some money being spent to improve the equipment, counter, decor etc. The toilets leave a lot to be desired. Food is average and very overpriced. Don`t come here if you only got a credit card, they do not take them.
