Set at street level in the uber trendy Artist Residence hotel, between Pimlico and Victoria stations (Hurrah! Finally a venue to draw you to this area!), Cambridge Street Café is pretty as a picture, with a brunch menu to ease you into even the hardest of mornings.
A relaxed and welcoming neighbourhood cafe by day, and a quirky modern restaurant by night, I can highly recommend the daytime offering, with all the usual brekkie suspects, plus coffee, juice and baked goods.
The omnipresent smashed avocado and eggs breaks tradition by topping dark rye; banana pancakes come with both sweet and savoury topping options; and open Reuben sandwiches and Croque Monsieur and Madame bring an international vibe not often found at London brunches.
The rooms and suites are the epitome of cool too, perfect for a city break or staycation… (There’s an Artist Residence in Brighton too, FYI.)
