the most lucious cafe in London

In theory I had plenty of time to get from Cambridge first thing. However… there was an ‘incident’ at Audley End and as it was the train in Kings Cross took an hour and a half. I Got myself to the V&A on the Picadilly Line (stopping off to use facilities at St Pancras – top tip – free!) and made it to the V&A about 11.45. After dumping my luggage, realising the exhibition i wanted to see had closed the day before, bought some postcards I just made my way straight to the cafe, clutching a map and a whats on guide. Deciding that a bit of sustenance and a sit down would help my frazzled self. Lunch lets not beat around the bush is ‘London prices’ a pork chop and one side was £12. But even if you are broke do set aside some thing for a cup of tea or coffee just so you can sit in the magnificent William Morris designed cafe. Three quite different rooms in style.

  1. The St Pancras top tip certainly is one, I’m thinking of checking out the V&A (which I nickname Vienetta) this weekend then maybe a wander through Hyde Park, I’m glad you enjoyed your time.

    I remember taking my eleven year old daughter to the V&A for the first time, including the cafe … she was awestruck!

  3. Its amazing and this time I stumbled into the stained glass room, the costumes (woah the Victorians were garish!) and nearly tried to have a nap on the Great Bed of Ware (I was AWFULY tired by this point!)
