    Really nice spot, there's a cozy living room and downstairs a proper space for tables. I had the cappuccino and a chocolate chip cookie (the perfect combination if you like sweet but not too sweet).

    Cozy cafe in true Monocle styled modern decor. There is a small "living room" in the back of the cafe that provides sofa seatings for patrons. Great place to spend a morning here with coffee & books.

    Katsu Chicken Sandwich FTW! Iced tea comes in a cute flask - perfect drink for summer weather. Matcha hot chocolate is good too.

    Yes, this place is about the infamous trendy magazine Monocle. It's cool, there are hipsters around and the prices are Monocle-ish. Try the pumpkin cheese cake, I personally loved it.

    Nice café with great (Japanese) lunch options. The katsu sandwich was very good! Very nice interior. Avoid sitting in the basement though, it was really hot and muggy there.

    Neither coffee nor cinnamon bun was anything to shout home about but it's a good place to come for some quiet time. https://

    The coffee is excellent! Possibly the best I’ve had in London. Drinking this delicious cup of goodness with the complimentary piece of dark chocolate made my day! Staff are also super friendly!

    Flat white of this boutique coffeshop is one of the best in town. Prices are relatively higher, but you will enjoy this cosy place, after a long day.

    Fantastic cafe. I tried the Americano and green tea panna cotta which were absolutely irresistible. The Americano had a creamy layer on the top!!

    Very stylish but laid back and unpretentious. Great place to have some quiet time or a good chat with a friend. The flat whites are good and presented in a way consistent with the Monocle style.

    One of my beloved magazines opened a café a couple years ago. This magazine is actually very interested in coffee and hip stuff. Result? A very hip café with lots of quality products.

    The best and most authentic matcha latte you’ll find in London. It’s creamy and made of high quality matcha. They source baked goods from Fabrique, including the famous cinnamon buns.

    Surprisingly down to earth service in this mini cafe. Not as 'Monocle' as you'd expect it to be. Coffee and pastries are perfect, cute outdoor seats out front. Friendly staff.

    A piece of Japan in Marylebone. Minimalist cafe that serves Japanese-Western food and baked goods. Their matcha latte is worth getting. Can get crowded on a weekend!

    Coffee is so, so good. Lovely decor and service always on point. In my Top 10 coffee shops in London. It's that good.

    Barista dude knows nothing about coffee, the English Breakfast tea comes with "a hint of vanilla", and a slice of cake costs £5. In other words, perfectly Monocle.

    Small and stylish café serving delicious pastries in a perfectly designed space. Grab a cup, the press and relax between shopping sessions

    Best coffee in Marylebone. Their cinnamon buns are even better than Nordic Bakery's round the corner.

    Green tea panna cotta was delicious, as was the tea. Lounge area very cosy but those stools are bloody uncomfortable!

    Coffee is always well made here. I've never read a bad coffee. Try finding a spot in the back room and have a look at their books if you have some time.

    The grilled Veneto sandwich is pretty good but if you wanna try the much-talked about shrimp or beef katsu sandwich, you gotta come early!
