Great coffee and worth waiting in line - you won't regret it. Monmouth is London's original coffee artisans and importers from days before the current brewing craze. I usually get my beans from here and there's a separate and usually shorter line to the right of the entrance if you're buying beans. Go early in the week if you want... More

Worth waiting in the queue for the coffee and truffles! Some of the best coffee I have tasted and in a nice ambiance!

The coffee is good, and definitely worth the wait. In any case, the line moves fairly quickly. It is a good stop after you've visited and eaten your way through Borough Market. Get a cuppa to go, and take a slow walk down to the river and enjoy the view!

Found the Monmouth Coffee House whilst visiting Borough Market and what a refreshing change it was. It was very busy with the queue out of the door but the service was with a smile and quick and the quality of the Coffee and food was excellent. It certainly made a refreshing change.

If you're looking at reviews for Monmouth it more than likely means you're in London and you like coffee. If that's correct you'd be doing yourself a disservice not going here. The best coffee I've had in London.

Come on - if you're visiting such a fabulous city, break out of your routine and get local. The line was long but it moves quite quickly. The filter coffee was fantastic. The staff was helpful and informative. You can tell they're used to having a crowd because they got everyone through in good form and still remained friendly. There... More

There is always a queue but if you like your coffee, this is a worthwhile experience. Delicious takeaways, and you can buy coffee by the weight to have at home. You can taste, why it has such a good reputation. My personal fav, the Flat White.

New this place would be special and different, with a queue outside of over 12 - 15 people waiting to get served this had to be something special and it was in every way. We had the most wonderful fresh tasting roasted coffee ever and the service was excellent, the staff even came out onto the street and looked after... More

The coffee served is really amazing, I knew coffee lovers and they really enjoyed it. I am not a big coffee fans but I can say this one, is amazing. I would definitely recommend it and the queue is really quick as they are well organized.

Great coffee , both having there and sampling the beans. I now buy my coffee here. Keep as far away as you can on Saturdays but outside of that - it's great. Great knowledgable service.
