Smugglers Cafe Putney

Cornish cafe at 58 Lower Richmond Road, Putney, London. SW15 1JT

A cosy, relaxed and family-friendly cafe, our aim is to bring a little of Cornwall and its laid back style and fresh produce to southwest London.

Serving speciality Origin coffee, Tregothnan tea grown in Cornwall, and delicious hot chocolates, chai lattes, juices & smoothies.  The Tregothnan teas include health-boosting Echinacea, Manuka, & Peppermint.  We are also fully licenced, serving Cornish beers and ciders, Prosecco, mulled wine & Pimms.

Our all-day menu includes light breakfasts, larger brunch dishes, sourdough toasties, homemade crepes, soups and salads, Cornish pasties from the award-winning Chough Bakery in Padstow, and a traditional clotted cream tea.

We also have a delicious range of cakes, brownies & pastries, including gluten-free, sugar-free and vegan options, and a range of ice creams.  Try our gluten-free salted caramel brownies, and feel free to ask for it warmed up with ice cream!  If you're detoxing, our raw chocolate bars are gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free & guilt-free!

Our Cornish shop sports a range of unique gift ideas: Tregothnan tea caddies, Roskillys jams, clotted cream fudge, shortbread boxes, Tregothnan teapots, and artistic greeting cards, prints, canvas photographs & notebooks, as well as hand-crafted jewellery.

And to occupy the kids whilst you enjoy some quiet time, we have a Sand Art table, where for £2 they can create beautiful pictures using coloured sand, which are then sealed, ready to hang at home.
