The northern branch of the Notting Hill Tribe loves Lowry & Baker – so much so that one local advises against even trying to get in at the weekend. This is the kind of local café most people dream about: warmly welcoming and with a laid-back attitude that makes you feel immediately at home. Indeed, our local informant said: ‘It’s like being in your living room – staff talk to customers and customers talk to each other.’
L&B (which opened in summer 2010) has established itself as the leading local independent coffee shop with a small, reasonably priced menu of uniformly high-quality food: good soups, sandwiches, salads and sweet things worth crossing town for. The blueberry cheesecake and banana bread are heavenly. Food is served on a delightful jumble of unmatched crockery, while the expertly brewed coffee, made with beans from Monmouth, comes in well-warmed white cups.
