Had been following this place on Instagram for a while and then booked it for brunch on Sunday for our anniversary. Food was great (pumpkin pancakes were fabulous in particular). Service was a bit slow considering the place was half empty, but we weren't in a rush. Would have liked a cocktail menu, they only have wine which is a shame.

We were driven to book brunch at the locals as the food looked amazing. Healthy takes on favourites with some interesting coffee options also. Staff were friendly but totally out of their depth. Coffees took 40 minutes to arrive. I had the rose latte the flavour was good but the rose petals on top not - it was like drinking pot Puri ! My pumpkin pancakes were outstanding. My bf had a dish with poached eggs and we sent them back as they were basically hard boiled (I saw two other people do this also. ) V expensive overall (nearly £50)

Great pancakes, the marmalade is a nice touch, buckwheat are less sweet and better balanced than matcha in my opinion

Great food. Very good costumer service. The only 2 things I didn't like was that we were sitted close to the main entrance door and every time someone came in or left all the cold air came in and we felt very cold. Also I noticed the owner didn't seem to talk nice to one of his employees.

This place was great, decent food, fairly good service in a lovely setting with reasonable prices (considering it’s in Chelsea). Only down sides were the tables being very close together so we felt a bit squished against the diners next to us. Also the location is kind of random, a bit of a walk from the train station and is quite isolated (no other restaurants or shops around it. Seemed to be down a residential side street). 4 stars

Loved this little independent cafe which is handily located close to Royal Hospital Chelsea for the Flower Show and also the Royal Physic Garden Christmas Fair. The food was delicious (we had the skinny eggs with rye bread, avocado and whipped goats cheese). Service was with a smile and the pricing was excellent considering we were in Chelsea. Well done The Locals, we will be back.

Fantastic location and food. I've been there before, so obviously love it..only issue was my friends food order wasnt placed, resulting in her having to wait (it was put as a rush order, but still...) and I was surprised that they didnt offer to take something off the bill for that error. Otherwise, it was great

The cafe itself was very nice and the quality of the food was good. However, we all felt that the value for money was poor, very small portions for high prices. £4.50 for a tea latte (no alternative milk)? £10 for one slice of toast with some avacado and feta? For that reason alone, I probably would not recommend this cafe to others. Service was also hit and miss. Our waitress was initially friendly and food came quickly. However, we also told quite abruptly (by the manager, I assume) that we had five minutes left at the table before the next sitting, despite having waited over an hour for the bill.
