    One of my new favourite coffee shops in London! Grab a latte if you're nearby or try the gluten free brownies. They offer different tastes every day, like orange or apricot & pistachio.

    Loved the flat white made from Alchemy coffee beans. Lovely interior but there aren't very many seats. The lemon thyme carrot cake could have been amazing if it weren't for the dry sponge.

    I love this place. Great coffee, free WiFi, always bustling... Just find yourself a place to sit. I can usually find somewhere to sit, even when it's packed.

    Great coffee spot, buzzing with energy any time of the day. Small outside garden for those warmer days and range of salads and quiches for lunch.

    Great flat whites and cappucinos. The house blend is always great and very good guest options on the menu too. Tasty sweet and savoury snacks. Mellow vibes. Great for work or chill.

    Very hectic lil place with cool interiors. Great healthy food, coffee is good but super small and Luke warm instead of hot. Owners appreciate & encourage polite customers which I like.

    Freelance haven with free wifi, great coffee and fashionable interior. If busy, get a take away cup and walk down to Regents Canal which is only a stones throw away

    Spaces to sit down and eat in can be limited around lunch time, but there's a garden downstairs that can be empty. Just let them know in advance when you're ordering, for any food orders.

    Cakes and muffins and cupcakes. Actually their cupcakes are quite elaborate and daring. Can get really really busy so plan ahead, e.g. lose the big buggy.

    sitting on high chairs by the window, reading a good book and sipping on a flat white (with a bite of cake) as the sunlight beams in. perfect!

    Good coffee and great working space but overpriced — coffee starts at £2.50 and a croissant will set you back £4.50. Staff are generally kind towards customers but openly argue amongst themselves.

    Perfect coffee, tasty toasties and cakes. It gets rammed on a weekend for good reason. For health and safety reasons they only do take away for the courtyard.

    Try their cold brew coffee on a hot summer day. It's not on the menu but they're experimenting with it and will let you try if you ask.

    There is never any seating - not just lunchtimes but midmorning too. Decor: hip, uncomfortable benches you wouldn't want to sit for long on, anyway. Not a place you can really spend time in enjoyably

    They already make a killing on the high end coffee. So you don't expect them to charge £3.50 for tiny pot of tea & £1 for more hot water!? Never been charged for refills anywhere in London...
