Kensington Specialty

Establishment neighborhood
Over Under
181a Earl’s Court Road , Kensington
More community hub than just a café, this new addition to Kensington’s coffee scene offers monthly live music sessions and rotating art installations. The food is exactly what we want when we’re in a hurry—Parma ham and white bean hummus on the best sourdough, a couple of fried eggs, and granola with thick-as-ice-cream Greek yogurt. The coffee is always perfectly made, but we tend to go for the iced matcha, which has a hint of lemon. At night, Over Under turns into a bar that serves a very good Negroni.
Squirrel
11 Harrington Rd., Kensington
Basically, Squirrel is everything you'd want in a salad bar and so much more. In fact, it's a health emporium where grain bowls, kale salad, gluten-free avocado toast, cold-pressed juices, nut milks, and kombucha are all available under the same roof. Have any of the above delivered or eat out of an acorn-shaped bowl at the "treehouse," the wood-lined mezzanine overlooking the custom-made fallen-oak counter downstairs. With a concept this well executed, it's only a matter of time before more Squirrel "treehouses" pop up around town.
