The Ivy at Kensington High Street

Kensington is full of wonderful places to eat out. Actually, there are so many it’s often so hard to choose! This is probably the area I am most clueless about when deciding where to dine because I normally travel to Notting Hill or Knightsbridge and Belgravia so don’t spend much time here when I’m hungry! 😉 When Elizabeth and I left The Chocolate Show at Kensington Olympia though, we needed a place to sit down and enjoy a nice lunch.…

Notting Hill’s Farm Girl, (easily one of my favourite places to go for photo-worthy food!) has caught on to the trend with their new latte collection: think yellow lattes, charcoal lattes, blue…
