Watch the pedalos chugging around London’s famous lake while you sit on the waterside terrace or peer through the floor-to-ceiling windows at this no-bookings Benugo-run outfit overlooking the Serpentine. A busy open kitchen feeds and waters a motley crew of famished tourists, sightseers, joggers, kids and grown-ups from breakfast onwards – so kick-start your day with some French toast, porridge, shakshuka or a big fry-up (meat or veggie). Later on, the menu offers soups, pizzas, flatbreads, salads and vegan ‘nourish bowls’, plus faves such as fish and chips, burgers or pulled pork sarnies with slaw. There are plenty of cakes and sweet things too, while drinks are tailored to young ‘uns and oldies alike, from juices and pop to jugs of Pimm’s, spritzs, Camden ales and a fistful of wines by the glass.

Serpentine Bar and Kitchen is a prime spot in Hyde Park. You can sit on their terrace in the summer with a cool drink, watching the swans go by or sit inside with a hot chocolate during the winter warm and cozy from the cold. It is located next to the serpentine and is easy to find. I think this is a prime location for any tourist, dog walker or keen jogger to stop off at for a drink or a bite. They cater for most people however don't always count that there will be a vegan option. They serve Breakfast, Lunch and early dinner- there hours change due to the seasons. An easy strop off point in the park.

My parents live a short walk from Hyde Park and we often head to this cafe for breakfast if we have time in the week before work, or at the weekend. We often take our pooch with us as there is seating outside (and there's a slither of cover overhead is the weather is a bit pants) and just watch the ducks and geese swim by on the serpentine. The breakfasts are delicious, and both myself, my dad and our dog can testify that the Full English is delicious, though my personal favourite is the french toast topped with yoghurt and berries. The coffees and almond croissants are also pretty bloody great.

I've been here twice recently as it's such a great location for a coffee and cake after a wander round the lake on a sunny Sunday! And my what a view - deckchairs outside or snuggled up inside.

Great coffee and cake selection but it is SO damn expensive, especially for mediocre coffee. A slice of cake is £3.75 and cookies are £2.70! Compared with Bens cookies it is just a rip off! I guess you are paying for the fantastic location but still.... Also spotted Mulled wine at £6.50 a cup and pizza for £12.50. The food does look good however so I am tempted to share a pizza one lunchtime next time I am on a wander.
Rant over but Benugo cmon - review your prices!
