    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.

    We all know Gwilym is a bloody genius in coffee world and it finds reflection is his very own coffee shop. Love absolutely everything about this place. Best coffee shop on this continent.

    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!

    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!

    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

    Truly wonderful coffee shop with excellent coffee. The flat white here is amazing. Delicious snacks as well, you must try the brownie! Free WiFi and plenty of seats. Does get busy.

    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!

    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.

    Great place for relaxing. Excellent coffee and super friendly staff. Cappuccino was silky and smooth. Must visit for coffee geeks.

    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.

    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.
  • Omer C.
    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.

    Bright place. Plugs are on the right side next to the window. Wifi password: sweetshop. Staff is amazingly positive & nice. Prufrock always has vegan options 💞

    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!

    Some of the best coffee in the area (probably in London). Light and airy space with free wifi. Try the banana bread!! It's awesome.

    One of my new favourite places - they take great care to pick the best ingredients, the breakfast menu is simple but delicious and the coffee is incredible.

    Top notch flat white, and I love the way they serve tea: you can go bring your cup back for two additional free 'infusions'.

    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.

    I get why is on the TOP5 coffee shops in London. The flavour is great. The place is big and spacious... full of hipsters but still cool.

    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.

    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.

    Coffee lover? Then try Prufrock! <3 I ordered a soy cappuccino, no art on my coffee. Next time I would be sure to get the latte art!! :))

    No doubt that this is one of the finest and most dedicated coffee houses in London. Benchmark flat white and aspirational espresso.

    The avocado on rye is one of London's best budget lunches. Swap it for sourdough and it's even better.
