Chiswick has a very strong cafe culture and the independents here take a lot of care to create truly individual and characterful places to visit. While you’re visiting the area for EatChiswick, take a leisurely stroll around the cafes and eateries by starting at Turnham Green.
On the map you’ll see the newly opened Chief Coffee, pop in for a crodough and a game of pinball, the team will be happy to show you around. Across the road, there’s Samba Swirl – this self serve frozen yoghurt shop is a diehard favourite with the locals. A few doors down, Belgian chocolate shop l’appetit fou has a selection of sugar free chocolates to sample for EatChiswick Wristband holders. Don’t miss out on Outsider Tart or Tamp Coffee either, both have their own individual style and flair. Then head to Chateau Dessert for a mouthwatering selection of cakes and savouries; lots of gluten and dairy free choices there too. Continuing down Chiswick High Road, pop in to Crepe Affaire for a sweet or savoury treat, then it’s across the road towards the Town Hall and a visit to Badger & Earl which is the innovative social crafting cafe.
Ending at Grove Park Deli, follow the signs back to Gunnersbury station to complete your trip or head down to Strand on the Green to finish your walk with a cool drink on the river at The City Barge or The Bell and Crown. You can take the Kew Bridge Overground train from there and there are several bus routes too, look at transport links here and enjoy the tour.
