    Great flat whites, friendly staff and good wines in the evening - a great pre-theatre meeting spot. Not a good working environment, as the ambient music is loud, and non-existent WiFi.

    One of the best coffee places in Central London! They use their own beans and brew specialty coffees to perfection. Relaxed atmosphere with plenty of seating, they also sell Coffee accessories!

    Great Flat White even if a little more expensive than your usual chain of coffee shop. Worth paying that bit extra for a relaxing atmosphere, friendly service and when I popped in, some soothing Jazz.

    Lovingly made coffee, fresh sandwiches and infused water to help yourself to. Perfect place to spend a few hours alone. Oh and the chilli flakes in the aubergine sandwich bread was awesome surprise!

    Relaxed vibe, with classical or jazz playing in the background & a classic movie on the screen. Eclectic mix of customers - tourists, museum goers & local office folk. Quality coffee & good wine too

    Put other coffee shops aside and try this tourist-free place. Roasting their own beans!! It surely has a great coffee service. also try a brownie! Pleasant atmosphere. Perfect for chilling.

    Nice fresh, healthy food within a laid back environment...you can go through the selection of music and enjoy the atmosphere...a nice start into the day before strolling through Covent Garden...

    Love this place. A bit of a gem in a tourist area. Quirky but traditional and old feeling decor that suits the heritage area. Coffee and cakes are good. Can be pretty busy.

    Absolutely amazing coffee shop. Whether you're there for tea, coffee or a snack you'll be rewarded with great service, an incredible atmosphere and a solid experience.

    Great place for excellent coffee and a quick bite to eat. Service is quick and friendly, there's plenty of places to sit and they have old movies playing on the tvs.

    Very dimly lit in the evening (for intimacy) but as a result a little hard to find. Keep and eye out - they're coffee is worth it!

    Very nice place for coffee with relaxing music. I assume the food must be good too but I'll never find out as the non polite staff has made me lose my will to order.

    Nice clean cup. 2 times in a row. One v60, one woodneck. Really well extracted, these were just treats to drink really. It's hard to decide which is my favourite coffeeshop of London..

    Aside from the espresso menu, there’s also a special brew bar here, you can also buy music and DVDs and there’s a private room at the back which you can rent. Read more

    Lovely coffee and nibbles... But if you are in a rush order wisely as at peak times it is not unusual to be told you coffee will be ready in 20 minutes!!

    Beautiful flat whites, takeaway is a little cheaper which is always nice (maybe it shouldn't be to discourage the use of disposable cups though... I'm torn)

    Modern and trendy interior with a high roof. Good for business talks. Had another piece of chocolate cake after my first as well...

    Great location in an area not immediately close to decent cafes. Wonderful setup. It's a bit of a shame though that the coffee here tastes like burnt beans ground and beaten up on the side walk.

    Coffee is great for sure. As well as the dark chocolate mousse with pistacho. Real mint leaves infusion 👌🏼.

    Nice coffee, great jazz, movies, and if you want something stronger why not to try their wine list that changes every month. Full review... Read more

    Good place to visit on Sundays when all the other coffee shops in the area are closed. Tasty matcha latte (2.8£)

    Wellington St. is great for wine and a platter of Italian charcuterie in the evening. Chilled out vibe is great for a Friday night.

    Great cafe with filter brew coffee, Crosstown doughnuts and the odd power outlet where you can charge your phone

    Very trendy coffee shop, chill vibe, with an excellent flat white. They also have Crosstown doughnuts.

    Too touristy for my appetite, but on the plus size, the coffee is excellent, and they also sell Crosstown doughnuts and Camden beers, what else you want?!

    As it's a coffee specialty place, a cup of great coffee. A great get away of tourist hot spot.

    Authentic selection of teas (limited) and good coffee, a little overpriced. Busy most of the time, small tables and feels crowded but finding a place to sit isn't too difficult.

    There only seems to be one table with access to a power plug - closest to the bar on the left hand wall

    Be prepared to wait for the brew bar coffees, specialties made to order. But worth it!

    Tip: head to Soho for a cheaper flatwhite. £3 for a coffee is STEEP! either a sign of inflation or a cheeky attempt to charge 20% more than other Indy cafes because of its proximity to tourist jaunts.

    I just don't get some of the previous comments. If you want a burnt espresso served up in 30 seconds go to Starbucks. If you want quality coffee and a place to relax then come here.

    I guess the area is too touristic for anything to be good. At least they maintain their excellent quality of coffee!
