* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

Very ‘zen’ for somewhere barely 100m from the A4 – this “delightful” Hammersmith café serves an “original and interesting” menu of light bites and luscious cakes and makes a handy stop-off from a riverside stroll. It was beautifully converted from a builders’ merchants four years ago by chef Lindsay Elder; and its calm interior is a good match for the yoga and pilates sessions in the upstairs room.

If it wasn’t for the A4 running 100m from the front door, this stylish café would have a “perfect location a short walk from the river at Hammersmith”. Inside, the funky interior is almost “yoga studio-esque” in its level of zen, and does superb coffee, plus “super hot choc and buns” as well as some good-but-pricey light bites.
