SquareMeal Review of V&A Café

It’s unusual to go into a museum eatery & want to order everything, but that’s exactly what caterers Benugo have pulled off at the V&A. Separate counters in the light-filled atrium offer everything from individual pies topped with herbed breadcrumbs or squares of puff pastry to vibrant Med-influenced salads, lemon-drizzle cakes & billowing meringues. Add to this the sheer beauty of the curved dining room – imagine pillars clad in parades of cherubs, stained glass windows inscribed with secular food quotes, & a high roof hung with sparkling tangles of silver wire & fairy lights. Efficient staff go the extra mile when it comes to helping elderly couples & mums with little babes, & there’s a peaceful courtyard with seating for sunny days.
