8. The Wet Fish Cafe
Easily the most popular out of the restaurants in West Hampstead!
At nighttime Wet Fish in West Hampstead is a Restaurant but during the day it is one of the many high rated cafes in West Hampstead, so popular that I do recommend booking in advance to get a seat!
It is set in one of London’s historic ‘wet fish‘ shops but these days inside you will find a modern and arty interior serving modern comfort food with an all day menu until 5:00 pm.
HAM serves modern British food with high quality ingredients so it’s another one of the cafes in West Hampstead to visit if you want a healthy meal but a delicious one!
They have a large brunch menu and lunch menu offering slightly unique dishes like Kimchi pancakes and Spelt pancakes.
10. Heads + Tails
Heads and Tails West Hampstead is a cocktail bar, not one of the cafes in West Hampstead however during the day the upstairs bar serves coffee and small snacks.
I love the modern decor inside with the bar-style seating and big open windows onto West End Lane Road.
During the day you can certainly enjoy a coffee in West Hampstead here or work in here with your laptop.
