Whether you’re after your daily dose of caffeine, a fresh cup of matcha, or just a nice spot to sit down and put your notebook on a table corner, London is undeniably a little paradise for coffee lovers and artisan roaster hipsters.
We have listed for you some of our favourite (and most instagrammable) coffee shops, perfect for everyone seeking for a bit of peace to keep up with their journal or simply to enjoy a break from their busy London life.
You might be familiar with the Grind, as they have a few coffee shops all around town. Pink velvet sofa, marble counter, they worked together with Australian design company Biasol for the interior and we must say that it is a little heaven for design lovers. Coffee, smoothie, and avo toasts , but also cocktails and dinner in the evening. A must go if you are around Clerkenwell.
A little taste of Japan coffee culture in the heart of Marylebone. With its minimal interior, Japanese inspired menu, and pastries from Lanka (a patisserie which fusions traditional French and Japanese food), Monocle Café is a perfect quiet spot to enjoy a coffee and plug your laptop. You can also find Monocle latest magazine editions, and some of their lifestyle products.
Barber & Parlour
Probably one of the best places in London to grab a coffee and relax (their big comfy sofas are an invitation to nap). Laptop friendly, freelancers will love their spacious and bright space as much as their yummy menu and detox juices. Located on the trendy Redchurch street, Barber & Parlour (which belong to the Soho group), also have a shop corner, and an in-house barber, cinema, and cheeky parlour. Worth to visit.
With three coffee shops located around Fitzrovia, in just a few years Tap Coffee has become a must go for coffee lovers. They spend a lot of time sourcing the finest ingredients to prepare their coffee, and want to make sure that their customers feel at home in their shops. Great place to work in peace, in the busy city centre.
Bringing Australian cafe culture to London, Farm Girl is well known for its charcoal and rose lattes, but also for their delicious healthy food. It's usually packed over the weekend, but make sure to enjoy their little outside area in their Notting Hill location during the week, it's a little corner of heaven in the city.
