Lounge Café’s details

The Lounge Café is located in Kingsgate Community Centre at 107 Kingsgate Road, Kilburn.

Opening times are Monday to Saturday from 9am to 5.30pm.

Two foodies from Harlesden officially opened the doors to their new community café in Kilburn yesterday.

Maria Kuehn and Zina Manda, of Greenhill Road, launched The Lounge Café at a special event attended by Cllr Heather Johnson, the Mayor of Camden.

Located in Kingsgate Community Centre in Kingsgate Road, the eatery offers hot and cold food at low prices.

Ms Kuehn said: “We are not greedy entrepreneurs - we just want to serve the community so this café is about proper home made food at affordable prices.”

Ms Kuehn has been catering for private events for the last 15 years and won a number of accolades including the recipe category of last year’s Observer awards and beating Gordon Ramsey in a curry contest by Olive magazine.

She added: “We opened on Monday and we have already got a few regular customers.

“Some people have said our prices are too reasonable!”

Ms Kuehn and Ms Manda, a marketing expert, hope to make the winning chicken curry a signature dish of the café alongside a mouth-watering chocolate cake recipe.
