A lovely little neighbourhood coffee bar hangout right next door to Kentish Town West overground station.

'The Fields Beneath' is a classic about Kentish Town local history written by long-time resident Gillian Tindall, and the name is appropriate for this coffee bar: TFB has a real neighbourhood feel. It isn’t surprising that K-Towners have taken to it enthusiastically since it opened late in 2012. The place is tiny, with just four tables but ample space for the takeaway crowd (many emanating from the Overground station next door).

TFB originally bought beans from a variety of roasters, but early in 2015 switched to roasting its own in collaboration with Coffee by Tate, with guest suppliers including Roundhill and Red Brick. It has always been of high quality, both in beans and in brewing. But you could easily come here just for the food. A monster cookie, dense with dark chocolate, was sublime and sizeable. Current offerings include a vegan dhal, and excellent baked goods are provided by the owner's mother.

During a pleasant half-hour visit, crowds came in search of sandwiches to take away, while our table companions chatted merrily to each other and to the staff. TFB has become an integral and much-loved part of the KT family. Let’s hope the love continues.
