Palermo Urban Coffee Bar

Highgate Hill

Palermo Urban Coffee is a pocket-sized espresso bar in an historic Highgate Hill shop, serving top-notch Italian coffee and French pastries.

The coffee on pour is Bell Caffe imported from Sicily and goes down a treat with the fresh baked goods on offer like lemon tarts, chocolate gateaux and chausson aux pommes (apple filled flaky puff pastries).

More than a café, owners Aden and Fiorella Rossinni, have created a creative hub where customers can sip well-brewed coffee, pick up a new novel at the Little Book Store and browse handmade Colombian leather handbags, jewellery and active wear at Fiorella’s Amadora Boutique.
