The Vibe

A place with a terrace, an orangery and an ambience described as “approachable sophistication” fits perfectly into this spacious spot on Chelsea’s most lauded street. An institution so sure of itself that even Evening Standard journalists couldn’t name drop their way in, this place is the epitome of discretion and feels truly grown up.

The Order

Breakfast here feels a little like a five star hotel, without the hefty price tag and egg station. If you’re pre-work, go for a city slick Egg White Omelette or Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Salmon – alongside juices of every colour and a double shot espresso to set you off. Those keen to linger longer or possibly luxuriate post night before can enjoy a Full English in this most quintessential of establishments.

The Game

We went for breakfast but the menu is all day and the garden is a true delight on warm afternoons and evenings. Book ahead – no one in Chelsea likes to cook for themselves so the tables turn quicker than the sports cars outside. Evening wise, eat first (for fear of missing your spot) then squeeze in at the bar afterwards or cosy up on a sofa. If the weather’s playing ball, a walk to the river after will guarantee delight with the sight of Albert Bridge all lit up.

The Faults

It’s Chelsea. VERY Chelsea.
