15 of the best independent cafés and coffee shops in Wimbledon

From classy brews to fancy Japanese matchas, here’s the ultimate coffee lover’s guide to Wimbledon.

When it comes to coffee (and tea, and cake), Wimbledon may seem at first glance like a never-ending stream of coffee shop chains. But there’s more – if a quality independent cafe is what you’re after, here’s the ultimate selection for you.

1

Lu-Ma Café

This award-winning oasis of peace in the very heart of Wimbledon will feed your flesh and soul alike. A carefully curated menu boasts grains, beans, pulses, vegetables and fruits and aims to promote wellbeing and energy: pop in for a coconut porridge, veggie full English, jackfruit burger, or their signature curry. They also host plenty of fantastic events, from cooking classes to mindfulness and meditation workshops, and everything in between.
