Readers seem more taken with The Ivy Chelsea Garden, but there’s plenty to recommend this classy brand extension. Marylebone loves a grand café, and all the details – heavy silverware, nets at the windows, huge floral sprays – are present and correct. A generous walk-in policy ensures that impulsive passers-by can click-clack over the expensively tiled floor and take a seat among shiny framed prints. Breakfast is a treat and, not surprisingly, there’s a strong comfort element to the rest of the menu; if you crave fishcakes, shepherd’s pie, duck curry or a hamburger, they’ve got your back. Meanwhile, cleaner eaters will find simply grilled fish and healthy-sounding salads (perhaps kale, quinoa, avocado and mixed seeds with ponzu dressing). The wine list is short but serviceable, cocktails include a three-strong Negroni tasting set, service combines formality with warmth, and they’re great with kids – “something for everyone” in fact.

I was lucky to have lunch twice here over the holidays, and can only sing it's praises. I was ill the first time I went and on a restricted diet, so thought I would have to suffer eating just a slice of bread while my husband ate like a king, but the waitress was very kind and spoke to the kitchen and they grilled me a piece of Dover sole, which tasted wonderful - so thank you!. The Ivy Cafe has an extensive menu, with just about every kind of food I love (and they are open for weekend breakfast / brunch). Shepherds pie, grilled Dover sole (with lemon, capers and butter) and Zucchini fritti are so far the stand out dishes for me, but everything that went past me on a plate I want to try. The staff are attentive and on both occasions it was packed to the rafters with groups of all ages, Christmas shoppers and a line of incredulous locals turning up without a booking, shocked to be turned away with cries of "but I have eaten here many times before, surely you can find me a table". This is our new favourite local, no doubt we will visit again and again (but we will book in advance)!
Absolutely love this place! Just what the neighbourhood needed. Excellent service, wonderful food it's an absolute gem!
