Side step: an impressive café in the V&A

19 Nov

The Victoria and Albert museum hails itself as the world’s greatest museum of art and design. That may be true. But last Sunday, I didn’t go to admire the permanent collections or the exhibition on Hollywood costumes that’s been the talk of the town.

No. As a foodie, I skipped the museum queues and went straight for the glorious café round the back, naturally.

In terms of food and drink, it is just an ordinary café with the usual croissants, hot chocolates, paninis and fresh sandwiches etc. But the setting is absolutely stunning and could compete for the world’s greatest café of art and design, or at least in London.

The menu isn’t outrageously priced considering the backdrop, with a hot drink costing around £3. Check out the glory for yourself.

Opening times: daily 10am-5:15pm, Fridays until 9:30pm.
