Your Guide To Golborne Road
Packed full of delicious eateries, vintage finds, cool artworks and must-see places, here is the guide to Golborne Road. Plus a what-to-wear when wandering round!
Food & Drink
It might be small but the area boasts some of the best hot spots to grab a bite to eat and enjoy a hot coffee in the sunshine. Check out these places:
If you're looking for a fresh yet hearty feast, head to Golborne Deli, an alfresco brunch spot known for it's sustainable wines and organic produce. You can eat, shop and even try out a drop-in wine tasting session on Wednesdays. With a vibrant taste of the Mediterranean, vegan and vegetarian options and a relaxed atmosphere, make sure you stop by!
Head over the bridge to visit Cha Cha. Offering exquisite Latin cuisine, brunch and cocktails and the most Instagrammable interiors we've ever seen with a unique, retro feel. Think velvet chairs, 70's inspired fringing and brass accents. Then, make your way up to the beautiful roof top terrace for views of West London or take a seat outside and watch the world go by.
If you're looking for a sweet treat, make sure you check out the long-running Portuguese cafe and bakery, Lisboa Pâtisserie. This small but mighty eatery has been around since the late 1990's and is said to be one of Yotam Ottolenghi's favourite spots in London! Serving up the best Pastel de Nata in London in a humble, friendly setting, it's the perfect way to end your day but be quick if you're heading there on a weekend as popular desserts sell out by 2pm!
Got time for a quick coffee? Pop in to Flying Horse for your fix. Producing the finest quality coffee with sustainably sourced beans, it's a popular destination for good reason. Sit inside the snug little cafe, rain or shine and enjoy a cup of perfectly brewed coffee. Bliss!

From carpets, rugs and pouffes to traditional tagines, ceramics and lanterns, this store will instantly transport you to Marrakesh. The quirky and bold exterior is inviting and with such a wide selection of goods, you won't leave empty handed!
