Dog-friendly Quince Tree Café at Clifton Nurseries
The Quince Tree Café, hidden away in an otherwise residential area bordering on Little Venice, is where you are likely to find many of the locals. Walk down a passage way where on either side are huge plants, and you are in Clifton Nurseries, one of Central London’s leading places to buy flowers. Rows upon row of flowering plants are on display just waiting to be bought. On the left in what looks like a large greenhouse/conservatory are a huge selection of houseplants. Here curled up on the counter you are also likely to find the resident cat!
On the far right, half hidden by plants is another glassed airy conservatory. This is the Quince Tree Café. Open throughout the day, the menu is small but there are always a few extra dishes of the day. They claim to only buy British meat, support local suppliers, and use responsibly sourced ingredients. Even more important for me, a bonus is that Poppy, my Coton du Tulear is welcome and even supplied with her own bowl of water.
My free-range scrambled eggs(£6)were served on sourdough toast as was my friend’s smashed avocado with slow-roasted cherry tomatoes (£7). A full English will set you back £11. Freshly pressed juices range from £3.95 for orange to £4.75 for strawberry, orange and pear.
Open Mon – Sat: 9am – 5.30pm
Sun: 10am – 4.00pm Breakfast is served until 12pm and 12.30pm on Sunday.
