Best 7 coffee shops in Camden Town
Gravity has its HQ and two properties in Camden (Camden Lock and Camden Town), so we dare to say we're quite acquainted with the area. One thing is for sure: you won't ever run out of new coffee shops and, overall, places to eat and drink. We've tried a few and decided to share our favourite independent coffee shops outside the markets.
📍 43-45 Camden Rd, London NW1 9LR
It doesn't get cosier than a coffee shop that looks like a living room coming out of the 80s... hence the name! If you want to leave the house but go somewhere where you can still have the comfort of home (plus plenty of nice drinks and food for every mood), this place is the ideal replacement. The atmosphere created by the vintage furniture and decoration makes remote working easier.
📍 3 Water Lane, London NW1 8NZ
Recently opened and already making success, Americano is privileged for its location right by Regent's Canal. Sit by the water, watch the narrowboats go up and down the lock and breathe in the fresh air and the occasional sunlight, whilst enjoying a pure Italian hot or cold drink. If windy or raining, Americano provides a large, luxury indoor space with plenty of seats.
📍 15 Chalk Farm Rd, London NW1 8AG
If you're looking to get away from the busy Camden Market, but not too far away, come look for the elephant around the corner at this simple but inviting space. The elephant may be missing but a whole menu of good stuff isn't! Try a delicious meal inside, outside, downstairs or in the lovely patio.
📍 82 Parkway, London NW1 7AN
This coffee shop may sometimes go unnoticed but, in that case, it's a hidden gem! It attracts people for its wide range of drink and food options and wins customers over for the friendly staff and open space at the back with colourful wall art and a massive skylight window that brings all the natural light into the room.
📍 83 Parkway, London NW1 7PP
A few seconds down the road from #4, on the other side of the street, you'll find the small but charming The Coffee Jar. Don't let the size deceive you, as they go big on irresistible pastries, sandwiches and toasties. The staff is quickly welcoming and the rustic design of the place makes it feel homely.
📍 46 Camden High St, London NW1 0JH
The Coffee Tree is a lovely place to chat, work or chill, with light ambient music and a big clear ceiling doors facing the busy high street, welcoming a lot of natural light and allowing for people watching and daydreaming while enjoying a good cup of coffee.
📍 20 Camden High St, London NW1 0JH
If you prefer a place with modern furniture, decor and plants, Saint Espresso is your best bet. This coffee shop appears small from the outside, but consists of three different floors with the one underground being the destination for those who want to work, as it provides loads of power plugs and filtered water.
