There’s no denying that Orpington High Street is a little grim, but boy is it convenient. The good news is, they have a load of newly opened independent coffee shops to escape in if you find yourself down there running errands.
My favourite to date is Finch House Bakery – cute, modern and airy with a great selection of tea, cakes, coffee, smoothies, lunches and breakfasts. It also won the award for Best Hospitality Business in Kent in 2016.
A great Sunday pit-stop for anyone local.
