Hammersmith & Fulham Award-winning café: Rafaello Café

As the manager of Café Rafaello in Ravenscourt Park, Jerry Pawlowicz takes pride in having won the Best Cafe award in Hammersmith & Fulham Brilliant Awards. This award will be no surprise to his devoted customers and local dog lovers who frequent Café Rafaello on their journey to Ravenscourt Park, the Thames river or Chiswick. So what is Jerry’s secret recipe for success?

‘We serve a great selection of healthy food at reasonable prices. Everything is prepared from scratch in our kitchen and locals love our coffee.’

Rafaello’s is a great meeting point for friends and families as it is situated on the south side of Ravenscourt Park on the corner of King Street and Ravenscourt Avenue. The café is yards away from some of the best schools in West London.

‘Every parent knows kids are always hungry especially after a long day at school or playing sport. We offer tasty healthy food kids love at prices parents can afford.’

So if dinner is going to be late Café Rafaello can help parents avoid a grumpy teenager. Any other secrets to success?

‘We have ample seating with table service so customers can settle in and enjoy great coffee served by trained baristas or ‘grab-n-go’ if commuting or in a hurry.’

What are the award winning favourite dishes?

‘Favourites are pasta boxes, fresh green salads, big wraps, freshly squeezed juices, smoothies made from real frozen fruits, baguettes, jacket potato, toasted paninis, sandwiches, bagels, fresh croissants baked daily on site. During lunch we offer fresh and hot chocolate chip cookies from the oven and breakfast specials. If the customer requests a new dish we are keen to make it.’
