If you happen to be in Putney (why on Earth would you unless you live there!) then head to Upper Richmond Road to Artisan for a fantastic cup of coffee. This independent coffee shop serves Allpress blend so if you, like me, don’t frequent Shoreditch too often you can still enjoy the best brew London has to offer. Warning: it’s a yummy mummy place, they have a box of baby toys and high chairs and bring your order to the table. I love it but if you are hoping to get some work or reading done you might be distracted by cooing mums and chirping toddlers. And babycionos are free.
Delicious pistachio and rose cake was consumed and coffee to take home collected (you have to pre-order it and it arrives on Thursdays).
