Tamp Coffee & Tapas
1 Devonshire Rd, Chiswick, W4 2EU
Like a homely log cabin in the midst of chintzy, plush Chiswick village (even the charity shops seem exclusive) Tamp is here to teach the locals a thing or two.
Owner (and ex-Artisan barista) Dorian is oh-so keen to promote his Mission Coffee Works suppliers, local artists (from the rotating art for sale on the cafe walls to the acoustic open mic nights every other Sunday), and tantalising Crosstown doughnuts. Most of all Dorian is keen to push his Argentinian roots, realised through the delectable empanadas - a moreish, savory pastry baked on site daily and selection of Argentine sweet treats (with names I can’t even begin to pronounce but happily ate).
Thanks to the deep brown wood paneling, muted lighting and warm staff, Tamp is an earthy safe haven from twee Chiswick, with even their competition’s baristas choosing to while away the hours over a Tamp coffee.
