First there was the trailblazing Venetia’s, followed quickly by L’Epicerie. Then the ever-popular Creperie Du Monde and the gorgeous little 46b Espresso Hut (definitely worth a visit!). Bakery Doree has joined in the Chatsworth caffeine scene and amazingly, all have their own merits and are all worth a visit.
The Scandinavian kid on the block is the excellent Cooper & Wolf which serves great Caravan coffee and homemade Scandinavian-inspired dishes. It looks great and tastes just as good. I’ve had the homemade Swedish meatballs and beetroot salad on sourdough bread recently and it was lovely… and enormous. Almost too big for a lunch, but then that really isn’t ever a criticism, is it?
On a weekend morning the Swedish take on a fry-up is also highly recommended. The pickled beetroot really helps with a hangover! But weekends get busy so, arrive early, grab a table and watch the world go by as Cooper & Wolf looks out onto a small park and is an ideal starting point if you come to visit the weekly Sunday market that Chatsworth Road has. The huge windows really are perfect for people watching.
The Sunday market itself has vintage, homeware, food and drink and, of course, excellent take-away coffee from Black & White Coffee Company!
