Kensington Palace, Kensington Gardens, London W8 4PX
8 September 2017
The scones at the Palace Cafe were all medium in size and fruit in variety. It was soft both on the outside and inside and was very fresh. Lovely!
The clotted cream was served in a standard Rodda’s 28g plastic container. Had we visited The Orangery (the other place to eat at Kensington Palace), the cream would have been served in a ramekin dish, but the Cafe is a self-service canteen eatery, so the sealed plastic container is not unusual.
The strawberry jam also came in a convenient form, a 28g jar of Wilkin & Sons Tiptree preserve.
Not a great choice of teas here, but the Earl Grey (two bags of Twinings in a pot for two people) was perfectly fine.
AMBIENCE & SERVICE
The Palace Cafe, which is combined with the gift shop, is the designated exit for tourists visiting the Kensington Palace. It is therefore a busy outlet and thoroughfare and very popular with the visitors from around the world. As we indicated above, it’s not table service, but the counter staff were cheerful and the white crockery and the table was all clean.
SCORE: 7/10 ~ GOOD
