Beckenham high street is full of little eateries, cafés, and smart bars. If you wander further up from the church, closer to the train station, you'll find Raggio's , the most adorable little spot I've come to know yet.


The decor has a simple palette of wood, off white, and plenty of glass, with fresh flower accents in little vases in the window. It is both pretty and grown up, with a clean quality a feature of such hang outs.

Raggio's, though an Italian café, offers the most incredible, yet simple bakes. Their well-made shortbread is excellent. With simple seasoning like rosemary and lavender, it is delicious without being overcomplicated.

The have a wide range of fruit and herbal teas, but they do their coffee very well.


I spent around two hours in here, emailing and Skyping my sister. The staff didn't bat an eyelid, and although I was a new face, they treated me like they would a regular, with a smile and even a little banter when I couldn't decide on what tea to have.

Raggio's is the kind of quiet venue you need when you have an essay to write, or just need a cosy little space to chill out in, with a pot of your favourite tea, or much-needed espresso. Fellow customers are a mix of middle aged parents and OAP's. Only a few young professionals drop in, but they're far and few from what I've seen.

Beckenham's high street might be the busiest area of this little village-like area, but head a little further and you'll find a place of respite. Recoup in Raggio's and you might you stay for a bite or two.
