A delightful well balanced afternoon tea, great service and would highly recommend. Couldn't fault it- maybe some extra hot water for tea, but I'm sure if we had asked, we would have got it.

An excellent selection of sandwiches and cakes all served on a beautiful array of mismatched crockery. A definate diamond that more need to know about hidden away!

We loved this little tea room! Quirky and cosy. Service was great. Food was freshly made and delicious. Loved it more because it was small and quiet. Much better value than afternoon tea at one of the big hotels and arguably just as nice. The busy road outside knocks the ambience down by one notch but overall a fab experience and I’d go back in a flash.

Very friendly and helpful staff. The sandwich are definitely not a “second thought”, and scones are absolutely delicious. Loved the apricot-peach, and jasmine-lychee teas. Came back to buy some more of them to take home.

What a great afternoon. The place is beautifully quirky and I can imagine the Suffragettes meeting in their planning their next demonstration. It was quaint and decorated throughout with vintage items. The service was absolutely lovely. The locals obviously know the staff well as a few people popped in for a chat while we were there and we joined in. We are two quite fussy Kensington ladies and they totally accommodated us. The food was very fresh. Sandwiches were made to order and the delicious scones were heated. I really must go back and try other things from the menu. Thanks to all. I need a boost in an otherwise dimal week.

This is the second time I've come to Candella Tea Room, I've been here with friends the first time and we had such an amazing experience that I decided to bring my husband for the afternoon tea. The place is so beautiful, the staff is very polite and helpful (and they were wearing a facemask, something that not all places do) The food is also delicious. I couldn't recommend this place more!

Service was great, so friendly yet unobtrusive. Decor was lovely, unfortunately (probably due to the weather) we were the only couple there so ambience could have been better. The scones were probably the best I have ever had, fresh and warm. Sandwiches were quite basic but tasty and really well filled. Other cakes were good, not great (apart from the cheesecake). Overall, a lovely experience which I would happily repeat - and great value.
