Farm Girl and Maison Philippe Conticini bolster South Kensington’s café culture

May 13, 2022

Australian-owned café Farm Girl and French patisserie Maison Philippe Conticini have joined the thriving streets of South Kensington’s cultural quarter.

Farm Girl have added a new location for their “healthy food and damn good coffee” at 8 Exhibition Road, bringing their portfolio to five sites.  The 1,025 sq ft site benefits from external seating as part of Exhibition Road’s al fresco environment.

Around the corner on Cromwell Place, London’s third Maison Philippe Conticini boutique has opened in a 525 sq ft unit.  The award-winning French pastry chef – who has over 750,000 followers on Instagram  – has five shops in Paris and two in Tokyo.  The brand launched in the UK in 2020, with a patisserie range that includes a signature Paris-Brest and St Honoré Tart.
