A cosy cafe in old town Croydon

My heart, my home. Croydon is vibrant, real and welcoming. Having moved away due to uni, work and travel, I came to forget just how friendly and rich in community spirit Croydon actually is. Croydon gets a lot of bad press which is a shame because it has always been a leading contributor in terms of business, the arts, fair trade and much more. There is a wonderful place that is; a cafe, a centre for the community, a workspace (ideal for freelance workers), an area to exhibit art, a music venue, a theatre, a true hub of variety under one roof. It is called 'Matthews Yard'.

Located just off Surrey Street market and soon to be celebrating its first birthday, it houses an electric vibe of grateful locals and smiley visitors.

It serves 'Has Bean', Blake Blend coffee, freshly roasted and ground to order by the friendly baristas on site. They offer a fine array of pastries, biscuits and homemade cakes as well as a light snack or brunch/lunch options at very affordable prices.

It's the perfect hideaway to study, have a business or social meeting or just see what happens to be on morning, day or night. It's a spacious, rustic building that used to be a workshop for butchers. The decor has married together old and new in a classy fashion.

So come and have a butchers's hook! at this tucked away, down a back alley spot in the heart of Croydon's historic old town.
