    Right at the top end of the list of best coffee shops in London, come here for much more than a great espresso. Full choice of brewed options, plenty of seating and a light airy atmosphere.

    Had filtered espresso with milk using Square Mile beans. If you ask, the beans can be changed to another brand. Thickness & temp of the coffee were good. The cheesecake & brownies were delicious!

    Very friendly staff, asked about different filter types and everything was explained with no rush. Also ordered flat white with double espresso and triple ristretto, which were amazing!

    The best coffee in London by far. Cappuccinos and espressos here are special. Choice of blends. Filter coffee a bit pricey but you won't find this quality and attention to detail anywhere else. 5 star

    Amazing place to work from for as they have reliable WiFi. Staff is super nice and will give you some freebies if you spend enough time there. There are only one set of plugs at the entrance though.

    I went for the barista training, but stopped for lunch and a coffee. Try the beans, eggs and sourdough. Naturally the coffee is superb - sweet and carefully constructed using Square Mile as house.

    Without a doubt the best coffee in London, if not in the world. They focus on quality, the Baristas are very well trained, they use great beans and have an amazing machine. Must drink!

    I don't drink coffee but the cakes were deliciously different, despite what the review in the Evening Standard said about the food. Wensleydale cheese and parsnip in a cake should not work but it doe

    I like the latte and their lemon verbena tea. Nice atmosphere to chill and do some reading. A little pricey for coffee and tea though.

    The coffee is great, the minimal decor is appealing but my favourite aspect is its location in what is today an unassuming but historically very significant Leather Lane.

    One of the best coffee places in London. They do food too (e.g. 50p mini bites of brownies), but that's not why you should come here.

    Pitch up at the 'brew bar' and taste a thing or two. Head Barista, Dave Regan, is a dreamboat. If you're on a coffee crawl, Dept of Coffee & Social Affairs is right across the street.

    Coffee not cheap, £3 for a cappuccino, but made with skill and care and the space is lovely. Chocolate bite for 50p is very nice on the side of your saucer!

    This is a hardcore coffee nerd place. Take the guest espresso if they have one. It's always high quality imported beans that are hard to find elsewhere.

    Great coffee at extortionate prices. Seriously, even tea is £3. Filter coffee £4.50. But yeh, it's really nice. If you're rich or fancy splashing out.

    They say the like to keep it "functional" by only having sizes on the menu - 4oz, 6oz, 8oz. Were snobby when I tried to order a flat white. Whatevs.
