We love our coffee, and we love discovering quality, local, independent traders too. Which is why, when we were wrapping up Kingston in time for Christmas, we fell for Local hero and offered to brighten up their day.
Local hero is one of the few independent coffee shops in Kingston city centre. At a time when global coffee chains rule the high street, Local hero was so named to stand apart from the rest. They are, quite literally, the ‘local hero’ of those wanting to support independent local businesses rather than the coffee giants. Hurrah.
The Kingston branch on Thames Street is one of two (the other on Fulham Road) and, handily for us, is a mere stone’s throw from our store, making it the perfect pit stop for lunch breaks and much-needed early morning lattes.
To brighten up brunch at Local hero, we’ve gifted them with some festive mushroom salt & pepper pots and Spot Red cedar mugs – as well as our own take on the festive red takeaway coffee cup tradition for those on-the-go.
Pop in and take a look.
We can personally vouch for their great brunch menu, scrumptious hot chocolate and heavenly cakes. All-round amazing food and, of course, top notch coffee.
