I was recommended this place from friends for their amazing coffee - and it's absolutely true! Conveniently located in the heart of Soho on Old Compton Street, it is easy to miss for its shop-appearance, but don't be fooled; they do incredible take-away coffee. For only £1 you get an espresso or americano, and for 20p more you get a... More

I've been a regular at the Algerian Coffee Stores for around 15 years - it's the best coffee shop & also one of the best shops in London . Don't miss it if you're in Soho it really is fantastic .

Tiny, little shop packed to the rafters with all to delight coffee aficionados. Laid out with a long counter, behind which knowledgeable & helpful staff await to serve you, one one side and a single cashier desk on the other on which can get the quickest, cheapest and best espressos in town with no airs nor graces and no waiting...

On my trip to London I had to go a bit out of my way to find this place but I'm glad I did. I found some really good coffee and hot chocolate (the Xocotla stuff: lovely!); the staff were lovely and helpful. I also had an espresso while I was there which was great. Set the bar for espresso!... More

Small but compact specialist shop in Soho - difficult to look around if you are carrying a lot of stuff and wearing a rucksack! Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Coffees available to go at a good price. Lots of coffee types available and like how there was a description of the blends. I brought a few different types of coffee... More

I had meant to go and check this store for a while as I work nearby. I finally did and I loved it! The smell when you enter the shop is wonderful. I tried the Vietnamese and the Vanilla and Almond. Both absolutely excellent! This is definitely THE place where I'll buy my coffee from now on!

Most amazing coffee selection I've ever seen. Unfortunately it is a very small space, so it is not a nice place to browse.
