Top 4 Coffee Shops in Kensington

If you're a coffee aficionado wandering around the streets of Kensington, you will almost be spoilt for choice! There are certainly plenty of places to get a cappuccino in the borough. However, if you are the kind of person who would never set foot inside a chain store and winces whenever someone pronounces it 'expresso', only the best will do.

The next time you're out and about in Kensington, you might want to give one of these top cafes a go. With great food, lovely atmospheres and - of course - top-notch coffee, you won't regret trying them out.

Kensington Coffee

A modern addition to the local area; Kensington Coffee is a small but mighty barista run coffee shop, on the quirky Kensington Church Street. Not only serving your caffeine fix, but also a large selection of gluten free, vegan and sugar free goodies.

Fernandez and Wells

If a unique beverage is what you're after, this is the place to go! The coffee shop has its own trademark drink: the Stubby. A bit like a mini flat white, this is one of the most popular choices for its patrons. While you're sipping your coffee, why not try Fernandez and Wells' excellent selection of cured meat and cheese?

Montparnasse Cafe

This cute, little French cafe on Thackeray Street is a great choice if atmosphere is your thing. You will feel like you've just hopped onto the streets of Paris while you are drinking your coffee and eating a delicious croissant. It's just around the corner from High Street Kensington underground station, so it's convenient as well!

The Muffin Man

If you prefer a quintessentially British atmosphere with your coffee then you can do a lot worse than checking out the Muffin Man. Describing itself as a "fine old English tea shop in the heart of Kensington", the venue serves a range of teas and coffees along with traditional cakes and pastries. A real treat!
