Blue Bird Chelsea

Bluebird Chelsea Address: 350 King's Road, London Website: Nearest Tube: Sloane Square or South Kensington and then a 5 minute bus ride Overall feedback: The place is definitely pretty and nice.  Reservations are only in the restaurant, so we didn't get to do brunch in the CAFE.  The restaurant only do Brunch on Sundays.  As for the food, nothing fantastic, but if you want a pleasant and cosy place to hang out, this is one of the options you can go to. #Bluebird burger - It was generally OK but nothing fantastic This was in the restaurant (rather than the cafe). The place is definitely very nice!
