About Us

Independent and proud.

Once upon a time, not long ago, three friends got together and decided to use their skills and passion for delicious living to found Shot Espresso – a bustling cafe, deli & aperitif bar rolled into one. Taking the best from our Antipodean, Italian and English heritage, we make the very best coffee in town and specialise in relaxed all-day dining using fresh seasonal ingredients. Our bijou home in the heart of Fulham was the first of our cafes, with us quickly opening another two places in South West London to offer more delicious things, all in both a comfy and buzzing setting – offering bloody good coffee and food.

Finally, proper flat whites have come to Fulham Broadway!’ says Stephen Finch, Director of Vagabond Wines. ‘We need lots of caffeine at Vagabond, so we’re probably at Shot Espresso at least twice a day. The guys there are also super friendly.’ So that’s the coffee and the service covered. Shot Espresso also serves home-made cakes and pastries, regular brunch specials and lunch – it also has an alcohol licence, and is open until 10pm. Perfect for an apéritif.
