Description: Tea, coffee, work and play. Re-imagined.Introducing Timberyard, London's most exciting new tea and coffee space.Timberyard was created following extensive research in London and in the US in cities like New York, Boston and San Francisco. A primary finding was that the broadest range of facilities were typically only accessible by subscription and that most existing sites available to the general public were small and designed primarily for in-and-out sales; yet, the general trend was to flexible working and work being viewed as a ‘thing to do’ rather than a ‘place to go’. Offering speciality tea and coffee, wholesome food, a vibrant workspace and somewhere to relax and meet people, Timberyard has something to offer a diverse cross-section of modern London.Timberyard is where a high-spec ‘geek-chic' environment for entrepreneurs, start-ups and local businesses meets an informal café admired by tea and coffee aficionados from around the world. Timberyard is about connecting people through business, social meet-ups, workshops, exhibitions, music and happenstance but caters perfectly for the individual too. Timberyard certainly stands out as an impressive contemporary space that seems perfectly suited to the area. Effortlessly friendly and with some excellent food and drink, it’s little wonder it proves so popular’.~ View London A brand new addition to the East, with just as much attention paid to gourmet tea (brewed by “tea sommeliers”) as to coffee’.~ LONDON’S TOP TEN CAFES Evening StandardFor self-facilating media nodes and other passers-by who want to get wired, as well as wireless’.~ 4 STARS Time Out Runner up – ‘Best London Coffee Shop 2013’, London Lifestyle Awards

“Another great place for coffee in Central London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

We 'discovered' this place on our latest trip to London as part of our 'mission' to find all the best coffee shops.
Our first visit was just for coffee in early evening before the opera, but we were sufficiently impressed with the flat white that they produce to return there for breakfast (toasted sandwich with of course another flat white).
This is another real gem to add to our list - we will inevitably be back!

“Love it!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

They're serving a serious coffee here! Latte art on top on every cuppa! Nice presentation idea of wooden tray, extra plus of store decor! Busy but feel comfy!

“Go for coffee and brownies, stay for the welcoming space and staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

This place is a hidden gem in the heart of London. Great coffee, better food (did I mention the brownies!?) and better space and staff. Great for both work and play! A must.
