My Favourite Speciality Coffee Shops in London




What makes a good coffee shop? I seemingly spend half my life working in them, so I think I have quite a good idea of what I think makes one worth a visit.  They have to have comfortable seating, great coffee and friendly + welcoming staff. The latter being imperative. I don't know about you, but once I've committed to a place to spend the afternoon, I don't then want to be getting up and moving all my stuff someplace else, there’s nothing worse than picking a place and then spending said time feeling uncomfortable. Obviously other factors play a role – wifi and good snacks are definitely an added bonus. So here are my favourite tried and tested coffee shops in London.

Workshop Fitzrovia

There’s 4 Workshop cafes but Fitzrovia is my favourite. No wifi but amazing coffee served by friendly and passionate baristas. Great snacks too.

Tiny TY

The newest and most adorable TY.  It’s tiny, so maybe best to just nip in for a quick coffee and catch up but really knowledgeable and friendly staff, and really ideal for people watching.

Located just across from the newest Bao, Sharps also has a barbers in the back. It’s super cute, the coffee is great, there’s free wifi, plus there’s a constant influx of attractive men getting haircuts. What’s not to love?

TAP No. 193

What I love about TAP is all the different filter options. They don't do batch brew, so I think it's more of a sit in vibe for filter, but the snacks are really good – and free wifi too, so plenty of entertainment whilst you wait.

One of the only half decent places to get coffee in West London. Whilst the filter coffee is slightly steep, you can always get a table, there’s wifi and the staff are really lovely. Plus if you get bored, you can just go downstairs and play pinball on one of their many vintage pinball machines.
