There’s nothing I hate more than bad coffee – it genuinely puts me in a bad mood and can leave me bitter for the rest of the day (a little dramatic, yes…).
So, to make sure I’m never far from a good brew, I’ve scoured the streets of London – well those close to my work and where I live anyway – to bring you my top 10 caffeine-hit destinations.
In no particular order…
1. Hackney Bureau, Hackney
Don’t be fooled by appearances – the coffee is excellent (and the food is good too).
2. Kopapa Café, Seven Dials
Kiwi café, serving up good kiwi coffee.
3. Urban Tea Rooms, Soho
The coffee here is award winning – so it’s got to be good, right?
4. Climpson and Sons, Hackney
The constant queues outside are testament to their great coffee.
5. Nude Espresso, Soho & Shoreditch
The coffee here is ‘micro-roasted’ (fancy way of saying the coffee beans are roasted in small batches) which means each cup is super fresh.
6. Mr. Buckely’s, Hackney
Their coffee is as good as their cocktails.
7. Franze and Evans, Shoreditch
Located in the heart of Shoreditch – it’s a great place to grab a coffee and do some people watching.
8. Riding House Café, Fitzrovia
The coffee is amazing and so are their pancakes!
9. Caravan, King’s Cross
The basement of this place has been converted into a coffee roastery where they roast beans sourced from all over the world – no wonder the coffee is amazing.
10. Talkhouse Coffee, Chelsea
The baristas here are perfectionists – guaranteeing a perfect coffee every time.
