Ten Cafes of Camden

Ten Cafes of Camden

From the mugs designed by our co-founder Anneke to the endless brews we drink in our office, tea and coffee are very important to the Camden Watch Co. During the winter months that are full of festive spirit, there’s nothing better than a warm drink with our loved ones. We’ve pulled together ten of our favourite cafes in Camden where we hide from the Christmas chaos to share coffee and conversation.

 

Caravan coffee roasters kings cross

Caravan, Granary Square

With its signature brunch, all day dining and on-site coffee roastery, we can’t get enough of Caravan, Kings Cross. The industrial dining room is the perfect setting for a festive hot drink. We suggest arriving early and tucking into their varied breakfast menu with a coffee (or three!) before starting a day of shopping in the newly opened Coals Drop Yard.

Leyas Cafe Camden High Street

Leyas, Camden High Street

Located outside Mornington Crescent station, Leyas is a firm favourite of those in the area. With its rustic mix of furniture, consistently good coffee and dog-friendly ethos, their downstairs seating area (with a rotating art exhibition) is an ideal setting for a hot drink hideaway.

Gail's Bakery Cafe Camden Town Parkway

Gail's Bakery, Camden Town

The first Gail’s bakery opened on London’s Hampstead High Street in 2005. We love their mantra of ‘we are ordinary people but we want to make extraordinary things’ and often visit their cafe on Parkway for a bakery fuelled time out. All hail Gails.

The Coffee Jar Camden Town

The Coffee Jar, Camden Town

It wouldn’t be a cafe list without The Coffee Jar. A Camden Watch Co favourite and friend of the brand, TCJ boasts a perfect menu of brews and coffee. If you’re lucky, grab the window seats and watch the winter world go by.

---

The Regents Bar and Kitchen

The Regents Bar and Kitchen, Regents Park

During your winter weekends, make time for a leisurely walk with a cafe finish line located in the centre of Regents Park. It may not be the best coffee in the Borough but the large seating area, hearty food menu and buzzing atmosphere make up for it.

Saint Espresso Kentish Town

Saint Espresso, Kentish Town

The KT strip has everything you need for a festive afternoon. Get your caffeine hit at Saint Espresso, located outside the tube station, with its minimalist interior and high-quality coffee.

---

Pambam Chai House

Pamban, Chalk Farm

A consistent activity for the team here at Camden Watch Co is our Pamban visit (rarely a week goes by without our ritual hit of rose-infused Chai). Pamban, located in the heart of Camden, is both a coffee and chai house with an unmistakable ambience that oozes Christmas.

---

Kaffeine Fitzrovia

Kaffeine, Fitzrovia

Outside of Camden Town but still within the Borough, you’ll find Kaffeine. Trendily spelt with a K, this cafe is a great spot for a morning espresso. Visit weekly and you may even spot Kaffeine’s A-list regular, David Beckham.

---

The little one primrose hill

The Little One, Primrose Hill

Little in size but big on flavour. The Little One, often cited as ‘Primrose Hills best-kept secret’ (until now), roast their own coffee and bake their own cakes. We recommend the homemade crepes for a Christmas pick me up.

---

The Fields Beneath

The Fields Beneath, Kentish Town

We are fans of anyone who has a sense of purpose. Fields Beneath, located underneath Kentish Town West station, not only sell cakes provided by their mum but their menu is entirely plant-based. Their ambition is to make veganism ‘delicious, easy and convenient’ - the perfect antidote to any chaos this Christmas.

So this month, make sure to balance out shopping sprees with chai tea and recover from work Christmas nights with a warming flat white. Merry hot drinking from everyone at Camden Watch Co!

If you know anything about Camden Market, you probably already know that it’s a hub for vintage and alternative fashion. Camden Market is, and was, one of the best places to go for independent fashion brands, well-kept vintage pieces, and alternative style. 

From mod to punk, cybergoth to bohemia, modern and vintage fashion blended together, inspired by the music and culture coming out of Camden.

We believe a meaningful collaboration requires three things:

1. A sharing of the the same values

2. Different yet complementary skills

3. A purpose and reason to exist

And from the word go, we've been looking to partner with a charity that fits this brief. When Camden Giving approached us about their 'Future Changemakers' programme, we knew instantly this was a purposeful project that we wanted to be part of.
