It’s hard to imagine a prettier – or more typical – Notting Hill hangout than this elegant café in an expensive clothing boutique. It’s full of delicately aged wood with vintage touches and monochrome fashions. The café isn’t immediately obvious from the street, and at breakfast is a quiet place to have excellent coffee and juice while leafing through the generous selection of papers, served by modelesque staff. The perfect place to pick up a £300 shirt to go with your eggs and coffee.

This place is buzzing on the weekends- with a queue to match. The chic and beautiful of Notting Hill come here, so it is great for people watching. The room is large, airy and light, but gets very noisy when full. The food is good, classic brunch options such as eggs benedict etc. However, make a beeline for their banoffee pie. Deconstructed and utterly delicious- a graham cracker base, slices banana and vanilla cream. It is simply exquisite and worth the £7 price tag!

I've been here a few times, thinking maybe I've not had the right dish but honestly it's so overrated. The eggs benedict is tiny and the price for it: obnoxious. Granger is way better and more affordable for that price.

I went for lunch with two of my friends on Sunday and as much as we liked the décor of the place we were surprised by the rude staff! We waited for the table and were fine about it, however the way the waiters 'instructed' us on the rules didn't seem to welcoming! Let's forget about the waiters- food is important here! With the salad for £16 I expect if not a decent size at least my bread not to be left stale. My friends enjoyed the food but it was overpriced for what we've been served. Not recommended unless you want to spend an expensive morning/ afternoon in Notting Hill glamour boutique.

I went yesterday for brunch and besides having a reasonable queue they got us a table fairly quickly, around 20min. We asked the smoothie of the day (very good) and eggs benedict and royal. For the excessive price I was hoping for something bigger, with better quality and at least with some greens on the plate. In my opinion eggs any type should always have some sort of salad on the side, for aesthetical reasons and to cut the rich flavour of the eggs. The food is OK, but I think the brunch stuff is massively overprice. After paying almost £50 I was still pretty hungry. I'm not going back for sure, or at least for bruch.
