NVP’s Five Best Al Fresco Spots in K&C

Whether you just need a quick coffee and pastry pit stop or the perfect summery location for lunch, allow us to recommend these five foodie sun traps.

Granger & Co

The Aussie king of all-day dining Bill Granger has just opened his latest London outpost on Pavilion Road, which has recently become quite the foodie destination. Soak up the sun while tucking into ricotta hotcakes and an iced tea.

237 Pavillion Road, SW1X 0BP



April’s Cafe

Part of style emporium, Boutique 1, and just along from Granger & Co is this well kept secret which popped up a few months ago. Dine on chopped salad and cold pressed juice and enjoy the people watching.

127/128 Sloane St, SW1X 9AS



The Ivy Chelsea Garden

Still hands down the prettiest setting for delicious food, cocktails and other indulgences – there’s even an entire menu dedicated to waffles – it’s easy to imagine you’ve been transported to California in this charming floral enclave.

197 King’s Road, SW3 5EQ




The ever popular forecourt at this Chelsea institution positively hums with revelers in the summer, especially during Wimbledon when you can watch live coverage of the tennis and enjoy fragrant fayre from the barbecue.

350 King’s Road, SW3 5UU




If you fancy somewhere a little quieter, head for the terrace of this Pimlico farm shop and café. The eggs Benedict comes highly recommended and the added bonus is that you can pick up all manner of organic delights to take home.

44B Pimlico Road, SW1W 8LP
