London is such a huge city that you need to know where to go to have great coffee and take a break from the hustle and bustle. So when Eliane asked me to share 10 of my favourite hotspots for coffee in London, I picked the ones I stop by the most and it also helps that they are very Instagrammable too!
They have two great locations in the city, both doing great coffee in stripped back spacious hangouts that a cosy and casual. Make sure you check out their ornate spoons. They are super cute.
Tap Coffee | 193 Wardour St, Soho | London
Combining some of the best fresh roasted coffee and interiors in West London, this independent coffee shop has three locations. Always busy and, serving great homemade sandwiches and tarts.
This independent coffee Kiwi/Australian coffee house is perfectly located in the centre of town and perfect for a break from the crowds of Oxford Street. Also boasts a great deli-style sandwiches and salads selection.
Artisan coffee roasters, who are passionate about the way they make their coffee and their shop on Leonard street is home to their onsite bakery too; serving great breakfasts and lunchtime snacks.
Part of the growing grind coffee shops, this expresso bar attached to The Hoxton Hotel is a great stop off point and with its clean smart interior you’ll just want to stay there longer than one expresso.
Brickwood Coffee and Bread
For south Londoners this is the place to come. Having three locations south of the river, these independent coffee shops are definitely one for your list when exploring this side of town and a favourite with the locals. Check out their toasted banana bread some of the best in town.
Fernandez and Wells
Located in Somerset House, this popular coffee shop serves independently blended coffee along with some delicious sandwiches and pastries.
Tiny, quirky coffee bar housed in a restored Victorian public convenience; serving great coffee along with brunch dishes. Attendant also has a new more conventional location on Great Eastern street in Old street.
One of my favourite finds in the centre is this coffee bar; perfectly roasted coffee which you can enjoy at home too, and in this small haven, you can escape from the bustle of the street outside. I love the tiles in the particular outlet too.
This maybe a little coffee shop, but they have a wonderful vibe. On a busy high street in West London this a must if you’re in the area. Serving great coffee, brunch and mid-afternoon cakes and treats this is always on my list.
