M4

In a sunny conservatory behind the dove grey shop front and hushed calm of Libby Blakey’s interiors shop, you’ll find the Garden Room Café. It’s is achingly refined, a vision of glass-topped tables, grey wicker chairs, quirky ornaments and hip design books. In the garden Parisienne wire chairs and tables are softened with cushions and tablecloths, the perfect invitation to a coffee and rustle of the newspaper.
 
This is a spot for elevenses or light bites, so a petit menu offers croissants stuffed with Parma ham and Gruyere, smoked salmon, avocado and mascarpone on rye bread, and a soup of the day. Cakes are impossibly perfect: plump sponges topped with nectarine and mascarpone, or a dense, multi-layered honey cake with salted caramel, walnuts and pecans. The counter is dominated by an enormous Italian coffee machine pumping out rich, dark blends; shelves behind are stacked with loose leaf teas.
