Food was lovely but there were at least 6 errors with our order. The staff weren’t very friendly and didn’t really now hat they were doing.
We were charged us for drinks that we didn’t receive. The sandwich choice was wrong and had to go back. The cake choice was wrong and had to go back. The macaroon choice was wrong and had to go back and then we have to leave without having our tea because they were closing.
It’s such a shame because it has so much potential the food and decor were incredible but the staff let the place down.

We were kept waiting an hr with no recognition of of or a apology for the wait. Eventually I got up and asked nicely if I should be ordering at the counter but they reassured me they would be over soon. 5 minutes later our order was taken but then we recieved wrong order with the opposite of the cakes we wanted, no plates or cutlery, we had to go up and ask for these when none arrived. We did get to keep the wrong cupcake but only after he had already picked it up to swap it. He was wearing gloves though so at least that was something.
It is a beautiful shop but i know think it's very overpriced and overrated.

Took 2 friends here as a surprise, it was so lovely!

Don't just come for the amazing cakes, the savoury dishes are really great too, as are the pancakes. Great flavours, tasty fresh ingredients and great presentation.

There's loads of space, really pretty decor and the staff were helpful and super attentive but not pushy or annoying.

Definitely recommended and hope to be back soon!

The ambiance was lovely. Unfortunately I feel like we were rushed towards to the end abs had to eat my cake very fast and down my drink which I didn’t appreciate. I was very sad that there was very very very little choice of cupcakes and cakes left when we wanted to choose our cakes.

The food was delicious, the decor is beautiful, but the service was disappointing. There were 7 of us in our group celebrating one member’s special birthday. This was mentioned in the special requirements when booking but was not mentioned at all by the staff. They tried to deliver and charge us for drinks that weren’t ours and the card machine was out of service but then came back to life. Overall lovely food, average experience!

Ordered the eggs on sourdough toast with extra bacon and avocado and also the eggs florentine and the eggs for both breakfast’s were cold.
Was expecting more from this place as I’d been wanting to go for ages and heard really good reviews.

Quite disappointing really

Pretty cool place! The pink color is a vibe and the teas are sooo good! But the sandwich menu closes at quarter past 2! After that only cakes, cupcakes and drinks are served.

Booked tea party for 5 as part of my daughter birthday, when arrived we got a normal table, according to them we didn’t order a tea time table.
They Dudi& vascular stuff from the menu including orange juice or macrons cookies, the cupcakes where very dry my daughter ate only the cream, and my older daughter got chicken sandwich with uncooked chicken.

It was really lovely. We loved the food and cake. They had sold out of the macaroons.

There were times when servers were around but not looking to see if anyone needed help. We had empty glasses that weren’t being picked up when something was being brought to us.

The decor is nice, it looked clean. It quite big inside and they have a downstairs room too.

The staff pushed us a lot to get the order while we were preparing for my daughter's birthday.
And finally, giving Bill very quickly means we had to leave while we still had time to stay. This made us very upset.

The place is beautiful and the service was great, but not selection of cakes and foods was available, we visited the place on Sunday after 3pm and no food left, only two types of cupcakes left, I cannot understand if the main product of the business is cupcakes and cakes, why they cannot make more of it during the day, it was very disappointed, my recommendation is avoid weekend.

Had to wait a long time to place our orders, it was not even busy. Felt ignored and when i called the attention of the ? Manager she asked " how she can help?" Even if obviously we needed to order as we are still holding on to the menu and we did not have any food on our table. The order was quickly served however the caesar chicken salad was awful, very salty. Needless to say, i am not coming back.

Booked a table with a pushchair but the waiter tried to cram us into a tiny two seater table in corner until another waitress intervened and we were offered the low table/settee area which was ok bit difficult to eat at a low table. Prefer the ambiance/service in the Belgravia Restaurant. Brioche French toast was absolutely delicious though!

We had the Brambles and Bounty afternoon tea with champagne. It was delicious.
The finger sandwiches are a very generous size. We chose the blackberry and pear crumble cupcake which was perfect.
The staff were very polite and attentive without being overly fussing.
Pleasure to eat here especially as we had been to the Chelsea Flower Show and it was only about a 15 minute walk away.
Would definitely recommend and we will return.

The venue is beautiful but service was very slow and we had to repeat our order several times to ensure we got the correct items as well as chasing up coffees that were not delivered to our table which wasn’t really what I would expect given the prices we were paying.

Our waitress was lovely however we found the manager to be too loud and a little rude in her tone.

She tried to move us downstairs saying that we only had an hour and a half slot and we’d only been there for 1 hour. A little shoddy to be honest.

Beautiful shop/cafe. The decor is outstanding. Food was delicious - we had breakfast.
Service was not what we would have expected - one of the 4 breakfasts came out when the other 3 had nearly finished theirs, we had to ask twice for water, asked for large Americano and got given regular twice, the second time we asked for it to be changed. We feel that a waitress/waiter should be assigned to each table, they would then know what had been asked for and what had been delivered, too many different people serving us.
The bill included 2 of an intern that we only had 1 of. We also felt like we were being hurried along to vacate our table when we had been sat waiting for the 4th breakfast, a cupcake to be changed to the one ordered and coffee to be changed, had we not been sat waiting we would have been finished in the allotted time for our booking.
Toilets were disappointing and need a refresh/deep clean.
The shop front is stunning and the food was good but for £130 for 4 for breakfast the service was very disappointing.
I would recommend to a friend in the hood that service was just a blip on the day we went.

Also been a fan of Belgravia but Kings Road is where as good or welcoming as Belgravia - tourist trap - hence the sheer number of tables upstairs and down - selling out. Sorry, but…

Responded on 28 September 2021

Many thanks for visiting and for sharing your happy memories of Belgravia. Our Chelsea flagship opened in 2019 and has a more spacious upstairs dining area and a private events room on the lower ground floor. We strongly recommend booking ahead, especially at weekends. We're very sorry to hear that you didn't find the Chelsea location welcoming and we will discuss this with the team who were on duty that day. We do hope you decide to visit us again in the future. Best wishes, Silvia
