Wrights Lane Kensington, London
Underground - Kensington High Street
It's my last day in London and I got a slightly earlier start today. I have a few more shops to hit before I depart.
Before hitting the streets I am taking a late breakfast at one of my favorite tea shops in Kensington called The Muffin Man. The Muffin Man is located on Wrights Lane about 2 block off Kensington High Street (near the tube station).
The setting isn't royal or elegant but it is cozy and cute. The menu has a number of options ranging from a fully cooked breakfast to lunchtime sandwiches and salads and traditional afternoon tea.
Prices here are reasonable with morning treats in the £.90-2.00 range and sandwiches in the range of £2.85 for panini to £4.25 for their "special" club sandwich. I also spied about 8 differnt cakes and pies at the pastry counter.
For a proper afternoon tea the price is £4.60 which includes a pot of tea, scones, devon cream and jam.
For my breakfast snack I ordered 2 buttered crumpets with orange marmalade and a pot of tea.
Total bill - £3
If you are staying at the Kensington Close Hotel, shopping in Kensington or perhaps visiting Kensington Palace, The Muffin Man is the perfect side trip for a light meal and a warm pot of tea.
The Muffin Man has been operating here for as long as I've been coming to London (since 1981) so I guess they must be doing something right!
