Lovely cafe. Nice interior. Food’s good here. Limited options but what they have is good. Cakes are good here as well, slices too. The home made icy poles are great too and made with real fruit. The coffee is ace. The only gripe is that...More

We were visiting Kew from the U.S., and were pretty jet-lagged for a week. My sister-in-law introduced us to Xocolatl, and we wanted to visit every day after that. My children loved their hot chocolate poured over ice cream, and their mocca coffees made every...More
