Vardo is a striking and spacious spot in Chelsea with huge windows facing directly onto the King’s Road. It’s as perfect for a coffee date as it is for a solo drink and some people watching, and if you’re in the mood for something warm and comforting, and you’re a fan of cinnamon, try their golden spiced milk. If you want to say for hours you can do that too, because it’s also an all-day restaurant.
