Here’s a Hampstead map with these 10 cafes in Hampstead to visit:
1. Ginger and White
Located down the beautiful side street that is Perrins Court Lane is Ginger and White Cafe Hampstead.
The cafe is only small but it has both inside and outside seating with a hip artisan feel. It gets very busy on the weekend at brunch time showing that it’s a popular Hampstead cafe with the locals.
2. Les Filles
Les Filles used to be called LLS Cafe Hampstead. If you’re looking for a vegan cafe in Hampstead or just somewhere where you can get healthy, clean, wholesome food, this is the best place to eat in Hampstead because their ethos is all about clean food!
Les Filles in Hampstead is very small with inside seating only but once inside it’s really nice as it’s cosy and homely. Otherwise, you can get a takeaway coffee and cake, so add this to your list of Cafes in Hampstead to visit!

3. The Buttery Cafe
Looking for a slightly unique cafe? Then The Buttery Hampstead is for you because it is located within Burgh House Hampstead Museum.
There are a few museums in Hampstead but Burgh House is the prettiest in my opinion and here you can sit inside or outside on their beautiful garden terrace (the only Garden cafe in Hampstead!) admiring the views of Hampstead’s stunning architecture!
