‘I tried the ‘best cup of tea in London’ and I get what all of the fuss is about now’ - MyLondon
... Vauxhall’s Kennington Lane Café is the number one rated spot for coffee and tea in London according to Tripadvisor ...
... Tripadvisor is a handy tool when navigating London’s countless pubs, restaurants, bars and more, even as a Londoner. However, while many of the capital’s top rated spots can often feel like tourist traps to residents, sometimes you’ll find a gem that’s just as loved by locals - and Vauxhall’s Kennington Lane Café promises to be one of these spots, at least according to its stellar Tripadvisor reviews. ...
...
The Kennington Lane Café has an impressive five star rating on Tripadvisor despite more than 1,000 reviews

You might easily walk past the Kennington Lane Café without realising the gem that it is ...
... Something that immediately struck me was that the café had a decidedly low-key appearance compared to many of London’s other popular spots, which tend to be more Instagram-inspired. Located just off busy Vauxhall roundabout, on the corner of Kennington Lane, you might easily walk past its unassuming, slightly dated shopfront without realising it contains London’s ‘best’ tea. ...
... In fact, I’d argue that what makes Kennington Lane Café’s tea so popular isn’t just the tea itself - which, yes, is very good - but also the environment. You can choose to be part of the buzzy, lively upstairs or have a quieter tea break downstairs. The staff are friendly. The tea is great and inexpensive for London. ...
... But all in all, I can see why the Kennington Lane Café has been rated Excellent 1,112 times. It’s about to get one more. ...
