At Smugglers Cafe, we aim to keep our carbon- and plastic- footprint as low as possible, and do what we can to support environmental causes.  If we can help with your campaign, please let us know!

We are a proud member of the Surfers Against Sewage 300 Group - a group of like-minded businesses supporting SAS in their work to protect the oceans.

We use Origin coffee, which is bought directly from carefully selected, sustainable farms, often at high altitude, where the use of pesticides is unnecessary.  Origin have a strong environmental policy, as outlined on their own website:  https://www.origincoffee.co.uk/pages/environmental-policy

Most of our loose-leaf teas are from the Tregothnan estate in Cornwall, grown organically on the banks of the River Fal.

We have recyclable, biodegradable takeaway cups & lids, paper straws and paper bags, and our cake boxes are compostable.  We also encourage customers to bring their own reusable takeaway cups, with a 20p discount.

We offer a range of alternative milks, including Oatly, Rude Health, and Bonsoy, and don't charge extra for these, except the Bonsoy (as it's twice as much..)

 We only sell soft drinks in glass bottles or cans.


We make our own juices and smoothies using fresh fruit and pressed juices, and organic wheatgrass powder & organic plant-based protein powder.

These give you a great nutritious boost, a dose of antioxidants, and are cleansing after a night out!

We specialise in catering for different diets, with gluten-free and vegan menu options and cakes, including acai bowls, gluten-free granola and porridge, veagn soup and vegan brunch.


We are pleased to now serve nearly as many oat lattes as regular lattes, so if you haven't tried one yet, give it a go!



Hi, and welcome to Smugglers - or Dydh da, Dynnargh dhis.

We are proud to have been part of the Lower Richmond Road community, with its crazy rowers, cyclists, PLTCers, families and friends for 6 years now.  It's the nicest place to have a business. 

So our seating may be closed for now, but we will be back on the brunches soon!


In the meantime, we are doing takeaways 7.30am - 3pm Monday-Saturday, 8am - 3pm Sunday. 

And we're taking orders to pick up hot brunches and lunches at weekends, or a whole birthday / occasion cake.

For all orders, please email:  [email protected]


If you know someone in Putney who needs basic groceries delivered to them, please let us know, as we can also arrange that. 

Take care, Smugglers.
