friendly neighbourhood coffee shop serving all day brunch,
cocktails, craft beers & loads of coffee 


Hot Milk is a Time Out award winning brunch stop & coffee shop. Inspired by our time in Los Angeles. We are based in Bounds Green, North London. 

We ate a lot of brunch when we lived in LA (two years working for startups but that's another story). Almost every day we hit Flake for a veggie rad, the Taco Truck on Rose Avenue for carnitas, sometimes venturing as far as GTA for a little too good Pizza and sprout salads. Two years later & two children later we finally realised a dream to bring a little bit of that Californian all day sunshine feeling back to London. 



Hot Milk Christmas Hamper £65/£45

We’ve put a hamper together that we hope you will love. It’s in a strong recyclable cardboard box rather than a more traditional wicker basket. For every box purchased we’ll be putting £5 worth of food into hampers and taking them to the Trussel Trust foodbank in Muswell Hill before Christmas. We’d also like to ask that once you are finished with your hamper that you make good use of the box, whether that’s turning it into a castle for the kids or bringing it back to us filled with anything you can and we’ll take it to the food bank in the new year.

Included in the hamper: Taralli Pizzaiola crackers, Salami al Finocchio, Chicche Cacao Biscuits, Cerignola Olives, Fusilli Voiello No.141, Balocco Torta di cioccolato, Prosecco, Hot Milk Winter Granola, Chash Christmas Tea, Craft beer, Duchess Farms cold pressed rapeseed oil, Doisy & Dam Chocolate

£65 with alcohol £45 without the alcohol

You can order your hamper via hello@hotmilkcafe.co.uk or in store.

THe gentleman baristas

Those magnificent men and their coffee machines. We’ve known Henry and Ed for a few years now and love them to bits…it also helps that their coffee is excellent.  

If you ever make it to the big smoke then go see them at 63 Union St, London SE1 1SG or The Building Centre, Store Street, WC1E 7BT

The Estate dairy

We are proud to serve the best milk that we’ve ever tasted with our coffee. Our head barista Emmanuel loves it so much that he drinks a big glass every morning…without any coffee. If Ian Rush still drinks milk…then this is the milk that he drinks.



chash tea

When Dan pulled his briefcase of tea out, we knew that we were onto a winner! Chash Tea rules. Hot all year and we’ll ice it up in the Summer. They say tea makes everything better so lets drink better tea!
