Community Coffee - 
Why Coffee Shops are at the Heart of the High Street 

"The benefits of having small coffee shops in our community are endless - If you are looking to move to a new neighbourhood they are a good place to start and find out about the local area and what’s happening in the local community ".

In Shepherds Bush and Hammersmith, we are fortunate to have several well-established cafés and  coffee shops which are very much part of our vibrant community and a welcoming sight - especially on a cold January day.  The delicious smells, buzzy atmosphere and cosy environment make a cheerful addition to any high street.
