The newly opened Italian Gardens Cafe in Kensington Gardens is the perfect spot to sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful 150-year old ornamental Italian Gardens.

The Italian Gardens Cafe, located besides Queen Anne's Alcove, has a delicious range of food and drinks on offer.

Whether you’re on your morning commute or talking a stroll through the gardens, stop in and enjoy our light breakfast options including French pastries, yoghurt, muesli, fresh fruits and fruit juices plus a wide range of teas and coffees.

Throughout the day there is a selection of salads, sandwiches, cakes, snacks and, of course, hot and cold drinks. There’s also a range of gluten free food available.

Indoor and outdoor seating is available to give you stunning views across the tranquil water gardens.

The Cafe is a fitting back drop to the formal Italian Gardens and features a living roof which supports biodiversity in Kensington Gardens.
