14 Cafes in Lavender That Makes The Old Estate Look Hip And Trendy

Cafes In Lavender

For many, coffee is not just an optional beverage to be had before work—it is a quintessential component for daily survival. And if like us, you require a shot or two of caffeine to get you in the right mood to take on the day, then we have more to share today.

If you have not already realised, Lavender is becoming more and more of a cafe hotspot with more than a dozen coffee joints and eateries springing up in and around the area over the past couple of years.

Two Bakers Cafe


TWO BAKERS


There are some cafes that serve good savoury dishes but fare poorly for desserts. And then, there are places that do remarkable desserts but you definitely wouldn’t want to go there for a proper meal.

A comfortable space with sunlight streaming in, alongside a mixture of communal and long wooden tables; groovy jazz and bossa nova tracks fill the space. It is little wonder this cafe is fast in cementing its place in our hearts.
