Good, could be better

My partner and I, overall, enjoyed Leyas. I do believe that some small changes could improve the business generally and really make this a place to impress. First, the coffee is quite pleasant though a little overpriced. I would have liked to have seen a larger size cup/mug for the cappuccino... read more

I have been to Leyas twice now and have received excellent customer service both times. The food has also been delicious both times, and even though I visited when the shop was quite busy, I received my flat white very quickly. It was one of the best I've ever had. Thank you, and I will definitely be coming back!

I have now been twice, both times the customer service has been awful. The first time, which was a couple of months ago, they forgot what we had ordered twice and the full breakfast was very small in portion size and had one particularly overpowering taste. The second time I returned to Leyas, we stood at the counter for 5... More

My friend and I were going to eat here but were really put off when we went to the counter. The sandwiches are just sitting out with no refrigeration. The cakes looked nice but were sitting on the counter with no covering whatsoever! Not appetising. Ordered coffee and it was the tiniest mocha I've ever had.

I love coming here for breakfast, they make the best Eggs Royale in Camden, easily. If I have a grumble, it's that their coffee is actually too strong, not a complaint I make easily! Great place, not super cheap, but worth it.

This place is so underrated - the sandwiches, salads and cakes are amazing. I work closeby so always pop in for a brownie, they are by far the best brownies I have EVER tasted! the tea and coffee is lovely too and the surroundings are cute. Love it!

Good vibes, nice furnitures, comfy music, nice staff and really good coffee. Had a brownie, but wish I was hungry for more! Everything looked delicious! If I lived in London, this would be my steady!

This place should be awesome and almost is. The coffee is great (including great decaf if thats yours thing), the snacks are very good and the decor downstairs is very appealing and conducive to working, reading or chatting. It falls down on three very addressable issues that I can't understand why management ignores. 1) The wireless is woeful, its hard... More

A fabulous little find close to Mornington Crescent on the way towards Camden. Lovely staff who don't fuss too much but are friendly. Its a cosy place you could sit in for hours. I simply had porridge and a cup of tea and the attention to detail of these simple things was quite special.

Staying in Camden

Neighborhood Profile
Camden
Famous for its sprawling cluster of markets and shops as well as for an embrace of all things counter culture, Camden offers a concentrated version of London street life. From bargain shopping and people watching to rubbing elbows in its abundance of pubs and bars, Camden is the place to be for many a Londoner. It is also home to some of the hottest live music venues in Europe. As packed as Camden High Street and its tributaries can get during the weekends, this neighborhood is right next to some of the city's most beloved outdoor spaces, namely Regent's Park and Primrose Hill.
