Brown & Rosie

10-12 Exhibition Rd, Kensington, SW7 2HF

Editor's Review

Brown and Rosie is the kind of space which, once opened has everyone wondering how they ever managed without it. South Kensington certainly has the footfall. And this large attractive café with outdoor seating certainly draws the eye. We noted that even on busy days, the staff are charming and work hard to ensure customers are treated well. Coffee on our visits has been good. The café work closely with Pablo and Rusty’s from Sydney Australia on the coffee offer.

It might be unique to serve an Australian roaster’s coffee as the house coffee in London but it works. Staff are knowledgeable about the coffee and know exactly why they are offering the Pioneer blend on espresso –think velvety mouth feel and caramel and a rotation of single origins. Filter is also available via Aeropress or Moccamaster batch brew.

Brown and Rosie was founded with an Australian model in mind – a social space to meet, eat, relax and drink great coffee. The food offer reflects this with an extensive Australian style breakfast, brunch and lunch menu served all day. In addition, the fresh salad selection from 11 is recommended and there are wraps, sandwiches and sweet treats. The café is open in the evenings with cheese and charcuterie boards and an extensive wine list!
