The area around High Street Kensington is a bit chain-y, so it’s worth taking a ten minute walk down to Hjem if you’re after a seriously good cup of coffee. This Danish café at Launceston Place is in one the prettiest corners of London and it doesn’t let the corner down. There’s a bench for two out front, but it’s also worth knowing that there’s a tiny and kind of secret patio out back.
