It’s hard to get work done in Notting Hill when you’re fighting for precious cafe real estate with the local trustafarians and a couple of hot mums who are on their fourth glass of wine. Though most cafes along Portobello aren’t ideal for productivity, Bluebelles is an exception. Here, it’s always easy to find somewhere to work, and unlike hanging around in Daylesford, staff are super accommodating to freelancers. As well as nice coffee, the cakes here are especially good.
