What a great selection of coffees. I brought four different types home from vacation, and I am certain to re-order in the future (even though I am across the Pond from them). The ambience of simply being in the store itself is worth a visit -- a true throwback to an earlier era. The fellow who helped us was efficient... More

In my opinion the Algerian Coffee Store provides some of the best coffee available in the UK. They always have an extensive stock of quality coffees, teas and accompanying paraphernalia, their "coffee of the month" deals are terrific value and their staff are knowledgeable and extremely helpful. They are, quite simply, the best.

The choice in this great little shop is vast. I needed the help of staff to help me choose and they did not disappoint. Whilst I was being helped a delicious espresso was being prepared. Overall, a pleasant experience and not expensive.

I visited here yesterday in order to purchase a particular grind of coffee for my first foray into the fashionable world of cold brewing. This shop has been in situ for many years and looks charming - stocking not only coffee but an array of premium chocolates and other treats. Large choice of teas. Vast choice of coffee.

This shop has been there for 125 years. Full of all sorts of coffees and teas. Lots you'll never have heard of. Opens late too. Well worth a visit.

My favourite coffee shop. The place is really small and charming. Not only you can have a wonderful, authentic espresso, they have a wide variety of coffee (beans, ground) and tea from around the world plus fabulous confectionery, and even yerba maté and tea/coffee accessories. The staff is always helpful and friendly. The location is ideal, in the heart of... More

I get a double flat white here quite regularly. It costs £1.20, and I promise you this is no indication of lack of quality - it is hands down the best coffee I have had in England...and it is made with love. They are friendly beyond words, and I have never had anything but a wonderful experience in there. This... More

We absolutely love this coffee shop. You can smell the fresh coffee before you open the door. This is our favorite coffee shop.

This place has been serving London coffee since before Jack was ripping and Holmes and Watson were clopping past in Hansom cabs. It's a great place to buy your beans and while a hipster can probably make you a cup of flat God knows what a bit better, their fresh espresso coffees are decent, and the bagged stuff is proper....

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
