This unique cafe is on the Kings Road in the heart of uber dog friendly Chelsea. We popped in for a drink during Chelsea in Bloom when the area is full of colour. Matcha and Beyond delivers plenty of colour all year round and that colour is GREEN. The cafe is small but perfectly formed with natural wood, soft furnishings and splashed of bright colours. The back wall is a firm Instagram favourite! But best of all, they are extremely dog friendly.
Matcha and Beyond is the brainchild of Olivia Nottin who wanted to provide coffee lovers with a healthier alternative.
“Olivia is matcha obsessed. She felt it was a perfect alternative with a very delicate taste, texture and many health benefits.”
Place your order at the counter, which will then be brought to you. Traditional coffee by Square Mile Coffee Roasters is available alongside numerous Matcha based alternatives such as Matchachino and Flat Green.
Breakfast items such as porridge and croissants are served daily between 8am-11am. The all day menu is limited but they also prepare daily salads and specials. You can always go for one of their pretty cakes such as Green Velvet Cake.
Vegan, gluten free and dairy free options are available.
Here’s what Archie and Freddie have to say about Matcha and Beyond:
We were very welcome in the cafe which is small but not too cramped so we didn’t need to worry about our tails getting stamped on. There is a bowl of water for us in permanent residence by the counter and they don’t even mind us sitting on the seats for those all important photos.
We visited on a warm day and it was lovely and cool inside.
We just have one question. When are we going to get Matcha Pupcakes?
