Located in the heart of Fulham, a place known for its diversity, its architecture, its shopping, easy access to great outdoor spaces, and its friendliness in general, Pearl Lemon Café is a place anyone looking for a break can head, and still feel comfortable and accommodated if they bring their work with them.
Looking for the best breakfast in Fulham? We have you covered there too, and you can enjoy a morning meal at your leisure in our friendly dining room or grab a breakfast to go fast as you rush off to your first meeting of the day. We also specialise in one of the best meals you can indulge yourself in – that sweet spot between breakfast and lunch – and serve up the best brunch in Fulham to enjoy with your friends, colleagues, or even by yourself.
Working remotely from home can be convenient and less stressful than heading into an office every day, and it’s certainly where most startup founders and entrepreneurs begin building their businesses. But it can also be rather lonely, and a little claustrophobic.
The need to get out can mount throughout the day, but might be put off due to a sheer lack of time. When you already feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day, finding the time to get out of your office can be hard. This is where Pearl Lemon Café comes in.
Working in coffee shops is NOT a new thing. Coffee shops began springing up across England – starting off in London, of course, – in the 17th century. And though they were far from ‘Ye Olde Costas’, they were places where politicians, poets, intellectuals, and business owners all gathered, often to get some work done in relative peace while also involving themselves in interesting – and sometimes heated – discussions on the news of the day, politics, the meaning of life, and more.
Whether you need to get a future prize-winning thesis finished, map out your brilliant business idea or just get some serious work done outside the sometimes seriously claustrophobic four walls of your office, Pearl Lemon Café Fulham Broadway will welcome you. No funny looks, no wondering when you are going to buy another coffee, and easy access to the free Wi-Fi you need to get some serious work done. And as we attract a wide range of people, hey, who knows, you might even meet your next business partner here too.
The coffee meeting is the networking equivalent of the Swiss Army knife. It’s a low-risk opportunity to meet new people, exchange advice, and establish the groundwork for a deeper relationship.
If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of a coffee meeting, keep one thing in mind: never, ever squander the other person’s time. They are donating their most valuable resource when they give you their time.
The good news is that coffee meetings have a rather low bar, as most people grab at least a couple of coffees a day anyway (or tea, or soda), so not only is a coffee meeting far less formal, but people are likely to be a lot keener to head to such a meeting, especially if it gets them out of their office.
Coffee meetings at Pearl Lemon Coffee are even better. Because working in coffee shops was such a big key to the Pearl Lemon Group’s early growth, we know what does, and does not, work when it comes to coffee meetings.
Noisy counters: no. Roomy tables and chairs set up for conversation: yes. Hovering waitstaff: no Chill music: yes. Great coffee: yes. Other options for (crazy) people who don’t like coffee: absolutely. Healthy snacks and simple small plates for everyone, even those with special diets (vegan, gluten-free, etc.): of course.
But that’s not all. We can offer quiet, out-of-the-way seating, and table service if needed, and we’ll even provide you with a small stash of pens and paper to record the amazing ideas you brainstorm.
Yes, we know Hemingway famously won a writing contest with a six-word story written on a napkin – and we’ll provide you with those too – but hopefully, your meetings at Pearl Lemon Café Fulham Broadway will be so fruitful you’ll need a lot more room than a napkin can provide to record everything you come up with.
At Pearl Lemon Cafe, we’d like to say we do something incredibly impressive like roast our own coffee, but we’re not that clever. We are, however, coffee lovers (addicts?) who never turn down the chance to try a new coffee. And as we belong to the globally based Pearl Lemon Group, we’ve tried a lot, both on our own travels and courtesy of kind, coffee-loving colleagues abroad who are generous enough to share their local favorites with us. And we’ve now happy to share the best of those finds with you, as well as new ones as they come our way.
Our baristas are experts at crafting the classic coffee shop drinks you love – we’ve been told we serve the best lattes in Fulham – but if you are more of a traditionalist our simple brewed coffees and teas are excellent choices too.
Tea, in all its many forms, is dear to our hearts – and often on our lips -and we offer a wide variety of it. From a traditional British cuppa to a herbal tea designed to wake you up, help you focus, calm you down, or just to make you feel a little better to less usual offerings like masala chai, and sun brewed iced tea. We can even accommodate you if you are one of the many converts to the delight that is bubble tea if you are looking for the best Fulham boba.
Not a coffee or tea fan or just not in the mood? We also offer a range of sodas, healthy energy drinks, and juices, as well as, if you want it, a nice cold glass of water.
When it comes to food, in addition to offering a range of bakery favorites, of both the sweet and savory variety, we work with the amazing Plant Sumo, a locally-based vegan catering company who specialises in creating vegan small plates influenced by cuisine from all over the globe.
This stuff is so good that even the most dedicated of meat lovers have been known to get hooked on the unique flavors and satisfying, nutritious fare Plant Sumo serves up.
Almost every health and nutrition expert agrees that skipping breakfast is a bad idea. But if you are super busy – and who isn’t? – wasting time on it can seem like an equally bad idea. Pearl Lemon Cafe can solve this dilemma though, and we offer not just the best breakfast in Fulham but one of the fastest.
Our staff is dedicated to serving up speed as well as great food. From a light, quick snack to something more substantial, our Fulham breakfast offerings can help anyone get their day started right. And while coffee in itself should not be considered breakfast, the fact that it accompanies of best in Fulham breakfasts as a matter of course is another big plus.
Brunch has become synonymous with indulgence, unhurried weekends, and special occasions, and is more than just a mash-up of two meals.
It’s difficult to refuse brunch. The languid pace and unlimited variety of this meal, which is typically consumed on weekends, are what have made it so famous around the world. Brunch also feels more fun, convivial, and decadent because it isn’t something you do every day. And because it is such a great treat the Pearl Lemon Cafe crew are dedicated to ensuring that you enjoy the best brunch in Fulham Broadway.
Contrary to popular opinion, the Americans did not invent brunch – although they certainly helped make it so popular. Brunch is a late-nineteenth-century British mashup of breakfast and lunch. It wasn’t just another meal, though.
Factory and office workers were able to stay up late on Friday and Saturday nights, thanks to the rise of the concept of getting the weekend off. When they awoke past the typical breakfast hour the next day, they searched out heartier fare that not only satisfied their hunger but also kept the party vibe going. It’s that spirit of nourishing celebration that we’re keeping alive in London today with the best brunch in Fulham.
Pearl Lemon Café is part of the Pearl Lemon Group, a growing collection of companies serving the global business community. Its founder, Deepak Shukla, spent a lot of time in cafés and coffee shops when he was getting the first Pearl Lemon enterprises off the ground, and knows from experience how useful having a place like that to work and meet up with like-minded business people can be.
It was his idea to get the Pearl Lemon Café started, but that was a mere concept. It’s taken the hard work of a lot of talented people to transform the vision into a reality. But we’re very proud of what that work has achieved. Why not check it out for yourself, the next time you’re in the neighbourhood? We think you’ll be impressed.
