After pounding the well-pounded pavements of the King’s Road and having obliged and done a spot of shopping, taken a whirl round Austique and stocked up on beauty potions at Space: NK, it is nice to refuel, sit back and enjoy a cup of coffee. Chelsea has more coffee shops, eateries and cafes than you would ever have dreamt possible. The choice of where to go and be a baffling one- do you go to a kale-wielding LA-style brunch destination which is just as healthy as it is trendy? Or, do you opt for a cosy cup of tea at the Bluebird and risk bounding in one the filming for Made In Chelsea?
My advice? The Chelsea Quarter.
Good food, great service, quiet (but not too quiet of course) and trendy without having to trend of Instagram first. I made myself at home, sifted through my emails and worked away for an hour. Usually by this time other customers will have come and go and the faces around you will look somewhat different from when you arrived. In the case of The Chelsea Quarter this isn’t the case. Flying visits do not seem to feature on the Chelsea order of service. Friends caught up over croissants and sisters reminisced about childhood holidays whilst their little Schnauzers snoozed under the table (not that I was eaves-dropping or people-watching!). If you’re feeling indulgent opt for a big bulbous chocolate muffin (or anything else from the irresistibly tempting window for that matter) and sip a frothy cappuccino.
