Our Story

Attendant’s co-founders, Ryan and Bosh, are dedicated to creating meaningful experiences in the hospitality sector beyond those of the high street chains.

Our vision is simple: quality brunch cafés serving the best coffee and local, fresh, produce-driven seasonal food, – all sustainable and ethically sourced. 

Our previous experience of central London cafés showed how rarely the customer was the prime focus in the transaction. 

Attendant is built to create meaningful experiences for local communities through quality products, innovation and an ever-evolving vision. Each café is designed as a welcoming space in which to bring diverse people together.

With our first site situated in a quirky, disused Victorian toilet in Fitzrovia, we made it our mission as a company to create a different experience from store to store. We strive to bring people out of the daily 9-5 grind; to create a place to take a moment, gather one’s thoughts, refuel and get right back to it. 

Remaining true to our vision, the Attendant provides a wholesome, produce-driven, seasonal menu that is fresh, fun and innovative. Our coffee is sourced and roasted with taste, quality and sustainability in mind. To further the sustainable coffee trade, we pay a higher price for our coffee based on its quality. Our skillful roasting releases the inherent flavour of the beans, honouring the hard work the farmers and growers put in at origin.

Since opening in 2013, the Attendant has developed into a coffee roastery, café and kitchen, with the intention of bringing permaculture to the UK café scene.
