Set within the historic surrounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, The Coffee Shop is a hidden gem in the heart of one of London’s most desirable areas. Enjoy free WiFi, a laidback atmosphere with both inside and outside seating. Our covered al fresco seating area boasts lovely views of the beautiful Ranelagh Gardens. The Coffee Shop is also very close to the South Grounds of the Royal Hospital, which plays host to the Chelsea Flower Show each May.

The Coffee Shop has been serving hot beverages, refreshments and hot & cold lunches to Chelsea Pensioners, staff of the Royal Hospital, and members of the general public since 2011. We look forward to welcoming you here.
