Another independently owned coffee shop, you can find Fee & Brown in the middle of the bustling Beckenham High Street.

Blessed with a view of St Georges Church and streaming with natural light, Fee & Brown is the ideal hub to enjoy a great cuppa!
By country mile, the Green Roof Cafe is the most beautiful café in the borough of Bromley.

The tea is served good old fashioned tea pots which taste even better when accompanied by a scone with cream & jam!
