Café Tangerine is a simple, slightly kitsch cafe inside the French Institute that’s also home to Ciné Lumière. Yeah, that’s right. It’s called culture, look it up. Although you won’t find any spectacular brewing methods here, it’s a super useful spot to keep in mind when you’re in Kensington and everywhere is absolutely rammo. Plus, they have fresh madeleines and some decent light lunch options.
