Harden's survey result
These “lovely” Antipodean-style cafés in Hampstead and Belsize Park are “worth the sharp elbows to get in”. The lattes and all-day breakfasts are highly rated, if a little “pricey” but – be warned – they are “often full of the activewear-clad chattering classes”.
“Top-quality coffee”, “great breakfasts” and “excellent cakes” are the winning formula for these “casual” Antipodean-style caffeine stops off Hampstead High Street and Belsize Park. They can be “cramped and busy”, but “you feel somebody is making food you like, just for you”.
For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
