Christmas Hours

Hello and Merry Christmas to all,
I am sorry it is a bit late, but this is just so that we are all aware of our Christmas hours over the festive period. Like most other good, independant cafes in London, we are closed over the Christmas New Year period for a well deserved break.

If you are looking for a hit of caffeine over this time, I suggest Flat White in Berwick Street.

Thursday 24th closed all the way through to the 4th of January.

January 4th we're open with usual hours.

7.30 am to 6 pm

Have a fabulous Christmas and a wonderful New Year. We really really appreciate all the support in our first year. We are very much looking forward to an amazing 2010.

Peter, Catherine, Jared, Estelle, Rhea, Erin.

Week beginning December 7th

Mince Pies? Italian style Pan Forte? Simply amazing chocolate rum balls? It's all about Christmas over the next 2 and a half weeks as we get into the festive spirit (we are always in good spirits at Kaffeine, why wouldn't we be?), but now we are getting festive, and perhaps a bit silly on occasions too, who knows....

Anyway, Jared and our new commis chef Erin have come up with a few simply lovely treats to lead us up to the big day and get us (and you) through the busy days ahead.

It truly is wonderful to come into the shop on a cold winters day to a warm welcome, really, really good coffee and incredible treats, not too forget our warming porridge and soups, foccacias and baguettes on offer as well.

Enjoy, it's what life should be all about.
