Guest blog by Tracey’s @livinginthecity

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!

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.

Workshop Coffee


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.

Angie’s Little Food Shop

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.
