Equidistant between Battersea Park and Clapham Common along Queenstown Road is a little gem of a cafe and diner, emanating from which the alert among us will notice the unmistakable smell of warm maple syrup. The Kitchen Door Cafe is a Canadian family-run affair that founder Goranka Gudelj launched to bring her home-style Canuck cookery to London’s hungry. You’d better book in advance, if only for the city’s best stack of North American-style pancakes drizzled with everyone’s favourite sweet tree-sauce.
Goranka Gudelj doesn’t like to distinguish between the dishes and delicacies she and her team serve up at Kitchen Door Cafe down Queenstown Road and the food she would normally treat her friends and family to at home. Besides concluding that she has one very lucky family, we can also state that what you find at this all-day cafe and diner sandwiched between Battersea Park and Clapham Common is true Canadian home-style cookery, ratcheted up to please even the most discerning London cafe-buff’s palate.
Open for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, the food focus here at Queenstown Road’s one and only Canadian-style eatery is on warmth, comfort, and healthy eating (founder Goranka insists, and it’s a refreshing approach). So, bring on the Canuck breakfast: stacks of buttermilk pancakes, fresh fruit, and syrup, free-range eggs, Cumberland sausage, streaky bacon, hash browns, washed down with a cold glass of OJ). Great north-of-the-border burgers beckon for Battersea and Clapham’s lunchtime set, with the Calgary Stampede Buffalo Burgers and the Montreal BLT being two particular hits on high rotation. And, all praise to the mighty maple leaf, thanks to popular demand The Kitchen Door Cafe is now offering London’s diners a dinnertime menu – watch this space for updates.
Went for summer afternoon tea. Would come again. Very welcoming and nice atmosphere. Not too busy for a saturday afternoon which was good. Cakes are delicious and I know, as an avid baker.
Nice staff and good food. We went for an afternoon tea. The juice was made of fresh juice. We had varieties of sandwiches (salmon and cream cheese, chicken and bacon), scones, and cakes.
Lovely little cafe makes me feel I'm at home great ambiance. Had the pulled pork burger was a little disapoimted with the size of the portion but overall very enjoyable experience
Very cute restaurant in Battersea. I've been there in a quiet night with my girlfriend and we really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. The waiter was very friendly and polite.
