Biometric passport photos while you wait from £6.99

The Photo Cafe Croydon offer biometric passport photos for babies, children and adults whilst you wait.
All UK passports use facial biometrics to measure facial features. Her Majesty’s Passport Office guidelines state that all passport photographs must meet the required standards to be used for biometrics. Any defects in the photograph might delay a passport application.
Being specialists in baby photography it only made sense that we offered this service as it can be very tricky getting your baby passport photos to meet the photo requirements.
We offer UK passport sized photos for children and adults (45mm x 35mm) which come in sets of four for £6.99
Baby passport photos also come in sets of 4 and are priced at £12.99. These cost a little more due to the fact that it usually takes longer to photograph babies. A ‘baby’ is classed as a child who cannot comfortable sit on our passport posing stool.
USA and Indian adult passport photos (2″ by 2″) come in sets of 2 and are priced at £12.99

“The best coffee a photographer will ever make you”

Roasted in South London using the finest coffee beans from around the world. These high quality beans have been produced both ethically and sustainably to ensure a high quality UTZ certified coffee. The Capital Reserve makes a great, medium to full bodied espresso that is intense and creamy, with the Tanzanian beans lending to its deep, rich taste. Tanzania coffee exhibits a bright and vibrant, winy acidity, with a deep, rich and strong taste. Typically with a medium to full body that is intense and creamy, a fine Tanzania coffee has a sweet berry-like, fruity flavour.

All your favourites

If you’re a flat white fan, a latte drinker or you just enjoy a morning cappuccino the Photo Cafe promises you an enjoyable cup every time

Flavoured lattes

For those who like a little sweetness to their latte we offer caramel lattes and for Christmas why not try the Gingerbread Latte.
