“good coffee when you have it at their shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I really consider Nude as one of the best roastery in London.
And a cup of coffee at either one of their two own shops, it's always very good.

That's why it's really a shame that one can't taste the same when their coffee is used in other shops.

Still have to find one that can serve it properly.

“Great coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I'm a self-confessed coffee snob. I believe there is no such thing as 'instant coffee'. I don't believe in Starbucks. I rather like Cafe Nero, and Costa is a nice place to while away a few minutes with a flat white. But top of the league is Nude, the New Zealand coffee folks, with a nice, homey cafe in Soho Square, London. The baristas are friendly, and know a lot about their product. For me, a cappuccino is too milky, and a latte is far far too bland. Sometimes an espresso is too harsh, and an espresso macchiato or a piccolino fills the need. Or a gorgeous flat white, like the one I just had at Nude. (I realise I am beginning to sound like Goldilocks: 'and this one was Just Right!") If you buy a bag of beans (whole or ground to your specs), you get a free coffee. And in my case, I got two freebies, just because my barista saw how much I liked the brew she had made me. Monmouth Coffee got there first with the free coffee with a bag of beans, but to my mind, Nude has them beat. Delicious coffee, strong without bitterness, smooth, creamy, soothing. And the atmosphere in there is great: wooden tables, with outdoor seating on the pavement overlooking the square. And if you're lucky (or unlucky!) the hari krishnas will come by, beating their rhythm of world peace on their way to their vegetarian restaurant around the corner.

“Perfect location for great coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

I found this specialty coffee shop on my latest trip to the City. It's located just east of Spitalfields Market, and is convenient for a short walk and coffee during a morning break in meetings. Espresso, macchiatos, and cappuccinos were all good. I look forward to returning.
