    I think this has the best flat white in the area.

    Great coffee but no wifi. Not that kind of workshop.

    Good coffee. Too hot in doors though.

    Amazing brunch options! Try the avocado toast or the royal Benedict. Amazing staff, helped us find fun places in the area to check out off the beaten path.

  • Kostas K.

    Heard a lot about it. Excellent environment but my cappuccino was terribly extracted...sour and bitter at the same time. Disappointed.

  • Zane H.

    Great coffee and brunch, it keeps this Australian coffee snob happy when in London. The smashed avocado is delicious!

    Zane Holloway · May 11
  • Elisabeth W.

    Unpleasant staff.

  • Amaretto C.

    Staff aren't the friendliest, which is a shame because it is a nice looking place. But they put the vibe off.

  • Amilcar G.

    Best coffee in town

    Baked eggs are excellent, as are the flat whites.

    Just noticed they've added mint peas to the famous corn fritter dish. It works a treat.

    Great place for an aeropress to start the day. The complexity of a whisky that will keep you sharp rather than slurry for your 10am. The Kasigwa was amazing while it lasted.

    Great relaxing coffee place with a giant coffee roast machine at the back

  • Renee T.

    The coffee is great. Food can be a bit hit and miss, nice atmosphere and not too loud.

    Renee Tillott · March 9
  • Oliver W.

    Excellent coffee. Probably the best Flat White I've had. In my top 3 London coffee shops.

    Lovely space, great coffee!

    Flat White.

  • Natalie C.

    Avocado on sourdough is my favourite food ever and here was very very good but for £9.50 it's a bit taking the mickey. Worth it if you are ok with that price because it is really nice.

  • Marko Samuli K.

    The (new) Colombian Finca Tamana was very good, much to my taste even if I'm not much of a drinker of Colombian coffees.

    Good ambience, loud for meetings

    Normally very busy, they don't have wifi but there is a good selection of daily newspapers. The hot chocolate is superb.

    Lovely coffee (in all shapes and forms) and dreamy muffins

  • Laura M.

    This place roasts its own amazing coffee and has a very good breakfast, too. With the abundant coffee smell and brick walls it entertains a cozy atmosphere, too

  • Andeea S.

    If u r in a rush don't come here they take their time even with take away. If you have time is worth the wait!! Great coffee

    £3.60?! I think we've reached peak latte!

    The huevos rancheros are great - and I'm hard to please having grown up in Mexico! Great service too.

  • Callum C.

    Great staff, incredible brunch and some of the best coffee in London!

    Callum Chapman · December 28, 2014
  • Leven Wenqi L.

    Spacious! A bit long queue in the morning.

    Leven Wenqi Li · December 15, 2014
  • Jeanette Y.

    Great flat white. They toast their own beans here!

    Jeanette Yuen · December 12, 2014
  • •¥• Alexandra P.

    Strong Espresso be aware of that. The pastries look delicious. Must try the Apple crumble muffin. No WIFI, which is a big negative note, guys.

  • Valentina C.

    Well frequented even in the middle of the morning, good for one to one chats

    Valentina Ciolino · December 4, 2014
  • Rosephine F.

    Trendy cafe, good coffee, breakfast and lunch foods. Good working spaces available and free wifi.

    Rosephine Fernandes · November 24, 2014
  • George H.

    Nice atmosphere although should really just be called 'shop coffee co.' As its hard to do work - main reason they don't even have access to the Internet

    George Harvey · November 20, 2014
  • Jenny W.

    Great coffee, but no free wifi.

    Great coffee, roasted on the spot.

  • Nicole T.

    Amazing latté with nutty aftertaste. I love their house blend and the french toast was lovely too!

    Nicole Tsui · November 12, 2014
  • Alastair T.

    Delicious espressos. One of my favorite beans is the cult of done which is roasted here.

    Alastair Tse · November 9, 2014
  • Hannes S.

    Supreme breakfast! Sadly the banana bread seems to be gone from the menu.

    Hannes S · November 4, 2014
  • Matt S.

    Definitely a top 3 contender for best coffee in London. The height of passion and professionalism, they take their coffee seriously. The food also happens to be fantastic. Baked eggs are great.

    Matt Schofield · October 31, 2014
  • Kristina P.

    Very well texturised milk in the coffee I was impressed. Corn fritters were good but bit heavy for my taste so could only eat one.

    Kristina Pham · October 29, 2014
  • T N.

    For a Sunday, I was expecting to wait but this is a gem! Large but still has soul. Ticks all the boxes; excellent coffee, great food, chilled vibe and prompt and friendly service.

    T N · October 26, 2014
  • Brad T.

    Eggs Benedict w/spinach and a very good, albeit short, bloody Mary. Good flavor on both and eggs were cooked perfectly. Good service, too!

    Brad T · October 19, 2014
  • Ana L.

    The place is cool! They don't do flat white but their Late is good. Brunch is also good but a bit pricey.

    Ana Lara · October 13, 2014
  • Mike C.

    In house roasted coffee

    Mike Cravey · September 30, 2014
  • Chris H.

    Great place to go for a bite to eat especially at lunch time. They also do excellent coffee, and I can highly recommend their espressos!

    Chris Haines · September 29, 2014
  • James P.

    Nice place but no WiFi so don't try and work out of here. You can't pick up any other nearby open WiFi spots either.
