Look Mum No Hands is not just any cafe, it has a bicycle repair shop attached to it. You can tell where the name comes from by just looking at the theme of the decor. Which is perfectly fitting with my search for a new bike. This places just goes to prove at how explosively creative our coffee culture has become in London. We are slowly moving away from the usual popular cafes chains and rekindling our love for more independent with an authentic feel. It doesn’t come any better than Look Mum No Hands cafe. The cafe is a popular hangout spot for “two-wheels-good folk”. They have an outdoor courtyard which is beautiful on sunny days.
When I took the boyfriend on a Sunday afternoon for a late lunch, we combined food with a little bit of work as we brought laptops for a bit of programming session. Not unsual, as you will find many of London’s creative folk all typing away on their laptops or chilling with a book or buntering with friends. So whether you are into bikes or just love good food with a bit of a fun atmosphere then this place is for you.
You can also bring your kids too as it a place for young and old. Their food changes all the time and is absolutely delicious. You have to try their chicken and mushroom pie, or their salads, which by the way are filling on their own. I have also stopped by for their fruit smoothies. Natural goodness without any additional crap in the ingredients. There is plenty to choose from too. I love the chatter of the place and I return here when I can for a people-watching session and sink away in the background while sipping away on my coffee.
