Home to the largest French community in London, it comes with no surprise that South Kensington is bursting with cafés. Wander the streets around South Kensington, after a visit to the Victoria & Albert Museum or Natural History Museum and you will feel like you are in Paris.
Mingle with the locals and enjoy delicious treats and a good English cuppa at one of Cheval Harrington Court’s favourite spots.
The Knot Churros
This is definitely not your usual café. Expect candyfloss coffees, churros dipped in fairy dust and mermaids swimming in milkshakes. And if you don’t have a sweet tooth, they also save savoury churros including salmon avocado and halloumi pesto.

Maitre Choux’s menu is entirely dedicated to choux pastry. You can expect beautiful Éclairs, delicious profiteroles and chouquettes. And if you need a pick me up after a day of sightseeing, Monmouth coffee is on hand.
Café De Nata
Café De Nata brings the world famous Pastel de Nata from Portugal to London. These mouth-watering custard filled baked tarts are a delicious on the go treat and come in a variety of tasty flavours.
Aubaine could not have a more ideal home then Kensington with its French café culture. This all-day restaurant does not only serve French cakes and pastries but also a Mediterranean influenced breakfast, lunch and dinner menu.
Decorated beautifully in Parisian style, Fait Maison serves a wonderful afternoon tea, delicious cakes and for something a little more hearty, their Middle-Eastern and Mediterranean inspired menu will be sure to tickle your taste buds.
