When Kim discovered a love of muffins and pies and all things baked, she threw caution to the wind, gave up her career in advertising and started selling homemade goodies at the Sunday Up market in Brick Lane.
Her flair for food combined with her nose for a good cup of coffee meant that she began dreaming of having her own coffee shop.
One year – and countless coffees and cakes – later, Maison D’être opened its doors for the first time in May 2011.
Maison D’être is an independent coffee house on a quest for the best coffee and a passion for cooking and baking. We have carefully selected some of the finest suppliers in London and we offer a variety of freshly made food and drinks.
We are on Highbury Corner, just across the Highbury and Islington tube station.
Our full address is: 154 Canonbury Road, N1 2UP, London.
