Is it a gallery, a craft boutique or a café?

Inchmeal in Notting Hill has managed to carve a niche for itself in the increasingly trendy suburb of Notting Hill, offering customers a unique space to grab a coffee, browse beautifully handmade products, or book themselves into an interesting craft workshop.

Inspired by a philosophy of supporting local artisans and the local community, Inchmeal is a refreshing addition to the Notting Hill neighbourhood. The whole place has a very strong community vibe about it as if everything was carefully handmade and handpicked, whether it's the coffee beans they use in the cafe or the exquisite terrariums decorating the foyer.

The café
Inchmeal offers a delightful menu of homely simple meals that are locally sourced and always slightly unique. These include Butterbing cookie sandwiches, Harry Hoo chicken and lemongrass dim sims, and homemade soup with toasted ciabatta bread.

Inchmeal serves ethically sourced Duke Espresso coffee. But they are also attracting a rising number of non-coffee drinkers with concoctions such as matcha latte, golden turmeric latte and Mörk Cacao hot chocolate.

The craft shop

Go through a doorway next to the cashier and you will find a makers shop at the back of the cafe. Every time I visit, I have an irrepressible urge to buy something, swept away by the cornucopia of items on display.

From polymer clay jewellery shaped like donuts and resin earrings that gleam in the sunlight, to the cutest amigurumi toys, Inchmeal's little makers section will make the mouths of any market-loving customer water.


The workshops

For those who like to get their own hands busy, Inchmeal offers a variety of arts and craft workshops throughout the year.
Here is your chance to learn how to make Japanese Mizuhiki earrings, sew a dress, or make a macramé tassel wall hanging.


Other popular workshops include making sterling silver earrings and soy candles. All the workshops are held within the Inchmeal shop section so you can always grab a snack before or after class.

Inchmeal offers workshops for both adults and kids. Looking for a school holiday activity? How does making an Easter terrarium sound? Or a clay planter box? Check out all the Inchmeal events coming up on their online schedule.

Inchmeal is open from Monday to Friday, 7am to 3pm. And on Saturdays from 8am to 3pm.

It's a great idea, combing a cafe with a craft workshop.
