Muriel’s Kitchen is cute. It’s home county, cute. It’s doodles of milkshakes on their menu, cute. Serving afternoon tea with homemade scones, cute. Being a three minute walk from South Kensington station, well, that’s just very practical. This place is a perfect spot for having a sit down coffee with the parents, and a tasty beef lasagne that, somehow, is only £9.99. Sure, the food isn’t going to cause any epiphanies, but Muriel’s isn’t about mad spices and flaming cocktails. This is about nice, filling food, and wine by the glass, in a chilled spot that makes you forget all about the flock of tourists outside. Plus, it’s open from eight, and there’s a casual 26 breakfast options on the menu.
