Cosy Coffee Shops to Try in Putney this Christmas

With the festive season approaching and the cold weather hitting us hard, it’s time to grab a book and try out some of Putney’s cosy coffee shops. Make sure that you take a look at all our wonderful cafes here in Putney, you wouldn’t want to miss out.


This ever popular cafe on Upper Richmond Road has dished up brilliant coffee since arriving on the Putney coffee scene in 2012. Winner of ‘Best Cakes and Bakes’ at the Coffee Shop Awards, London 2014, they serve up a punchy selection of treats too. Pitch up at the bench in the window table and order a macchiato, or refuel with a slice of Guinness cake.

GAIL’s Bakery

A little bread haven on Lacy Road, Gail’s puts the emphasis firmly on long-fermented organic sourdough breads, pastries, cakes and toasted sandwiches – all loaded with seasonal ingredients. It was voted ‘Best UK Coffee Chain’ in 2017 so you can expect their coffee to be good. With plenty of seating and conveniently located near to Putney High Street shops, it is the perfect pit-stop.

The Bakehouse 

It isn’t surprising that this tiny set-up has won the hearts of Putney’s cafe brigade. We enjoy the delightful selection of cakes and pastries, but it’s the bread that we’re really interested in. All baked on site, the sourdough loaf is one of the best in Putney.

Putney Pantry

A favourite with the locals, Putney Pantry is situated in the historical St Mary’s Church at the end of Putney High Street, next to The River Thames. They offer a range of delicious home cooked food from cakes, tarts and all day breakfast to warm meals. It’s a must visit!

Blåbär – Nordic Living

An eccentrically decorated place, Blabar is a local godsend. It’s an effortlessly chilled hangout where everyone enjoys their coffees and the Swedish cinnamon buns which are possibly the best in Putney! During lunch they serve mix-and-match combos of salads and open sandwiches and their cakes are freshly baked every day. You might also find the odd piece of Nordic furniture for sale while you enjoy their menu.

The Dynamo

A happy-go-lucky cycle café, Dynamo offers an all-day menu of bike-themed dishes across breakfast, brunch and pizzas, plus heaps of Allpress coffee. Their ‘100-mile’ porridge is packed with mashed banana, date syrup, crunchy seeds and vanilla.
