A unique floating cafe:
Shortly after arriving at Little Venice, we spot the Waterside Cafe. This idyllic cafe is situated on a narrowboat moored in picture-postcard Little Venice at the junction of the Grand Union and Regent’s Canals.
Bedecked with baskets of hanging flowers, the delightful narrowboat looks inviting so we decide to go in for a drink. There are outdoor quayside tables, but on this occasion it’s a good opportunity to be in a canal boat.
This unique floating cafe has heating for the cold weather and airconditioning for summer. The Cafe serves hot breakfasts and has on offer a range of sandwiches, paninis, jacket potatoes with various fillings, Ploughman’s lunch, plus daily specials. You can also get cakes, hot and cold drinks, as well as other snacks.
The Waterside cafe is actually no more than five minutes’ walk from Paddington Station, so it’s easy for anyone wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of city life to get here and enjoy a coffee or light meal in this picturesque and tranquil part of London.
The cafe is open daily from 9 am – 5 pm (sometimes earlier, or sometimes later in the summer).
Jason’s Trip is nearby and you can catch the waterbus for a pleasurable canal cruise up to Camden Lock .
