I actually enjoyed breakfast at this place. TWICE with my partner. Only issue is there is limited parking and it’s nearly 5£ per hour!

Cozy, green cafe, with a cute garden and plants scattered throughout. Delicious banana bread and good flat white made a lovely lady.

We popped in for coffees when we were driving out of London last Saturday and were really impressed by the lovely lady who runs the cafe. The coffees were great and she even did some whisked-up milk for our toddler, free of charge. We'll stop by again next time we're in the area and hope to try some of the food on offer.

Delicious food, lovely, cosy and clean decor. The little garden outside is full of plants and has a little water fountain, my favourite place to sit in. The menu is reasonably priced and the English breakfast has both halal and vegetarian options. I really enjoy the atmosphere and will be coming again. This is also a great place to read, do your work (they have Wi-Fi) and catch up with friends in a calm setting. Good spot too, very close to Holland Park if you ever want to chill or take a stroll after breakfast or brunch!
The highlight is the wonderful family who run it, they are so kind, thoughtful and genuinely care about the people who walk through their doors!

Food is very tasty and a nice place to relax if your in the area.. This is not your average greasy spoon cafe but does cater for the average workman if your looking for a full English or a fry up..
Nice combination of different types of food..
It wasn't easy to find this cafe on Google Maps. Maybe it's down to changing names a few times..
