Skittle Alley Coffee & Pantry is situated in the old Skittle Alley of The Black Lion Pub, in South Black Lion Lane, adjacent to the river in Hammersmith. Two local residents opened the space last October in order to provide a community hub, coffee shop, pantry and, on Saturday mornings, a small farmers’ market.
The alley is open every weekday morning from 8.30am-12noon and on Saturdays from 9am – 1pm. They serve freshly roasted coffee from Ozone Coffee Roasters in Shoreditch, bread and cakes from Sally Clarke Bakery and have an array of carefully chosen pantry goods, many made by local friends and neighbours. The Slow Food movement have recently endorsed the Saturday food market and the cafe has been awarded “Happy Cafe” status for providing an engaging and stimulating centre for the community.
