The V&A for Lunch. Who Knew?

by Krista

V&A South Kensington
Cromwell Road
London SW7 2RL

We were off to see the Golden Age of Couture at the V&A for a girls’ day out. It’s a great exhibition, which focuses on women’s fashion in the period right after World War II, with special attention on the work of Christian Dior. Check it out.

And while you’re at it, pay a visit to the cafe at the V&A. Had I known ahead of time that it would be so lovely, I would have suggested we stay for lunch. The rooms off the main area were gorgeous, and they had a guy playing the piano. You could get a nice pot of tea, or a glass of wine. The pastries looked nice and the whole place was clean and classy. Shame there wasn’t a spare table.

You may be too young to remember that the V&A ran a controversial poster campaign on the tube which went something like:
“An ace cafe, with a pretty good museum attached”.

Seems like they were telling the truth!

Yeah, they do a good roast (any day of the week). I think it may be run by Benugo … in case you haven’t been tempted by Benugo during the week.

Hi Krista,

Great idea! I will try out both soon, it sounds like a wonderful way to spend the day. Shame on me I haven’t been to the V&A yet – there always have been other things…
Looking out of the window (with this greyish Sunday wheather) I might make my way there now actually.

Thanks for saving the day!
