SquareMeal Review of
Royal Quarter Cafe
Out of the same stable as the Chelsea Quarter Café and River Quarter Kitchen, this third venture from Doron and Valeria Zilkha is aimed squarely at the Buckingham
Palace crowd and camera-toting tourists. Like its siblings, the Royal Quarter Café delivers all-day sustenance in the shape of home-baked pastries, cakes and assorted savoury items ranging from
sandwiches, soups and sharing platters to crispy duck salad, veggie couscous with grilled haloumi and pomegranate or chicken with roast sweet potatoes, fennel, pine nuts, parsley and rocket –
seasonal comfort food with a healthy edge and bags of colour. All-day breakfasts and afternoon teas are also there for the taking, while drinks span everything from freshly squeezed juices and
smoothies to wines and beers. Inside, it’s all white walls, floor-to-ceiling windows, tall bookcases and green leather chairs; outside, there’s a pleasing alfresco area.
