I love this place, my favorite roasters and coffee place. The guys are super friendly, and the coffee is just one notch better than anything else I tried, and I try a lot. I come here alone and with friends whenever I am in London....More

I’ve been coming here since the start of 2017. Staff has gotten unenthusiastic, coffee is ok, but subjectively quality has gone down a lot this year. The counters are generally pretty filthy and don’t get wiped clean (wet clean) it seems for days at a...More

Stumbled into Alchemy on a very rainy London Saturday morning. Very very welcoming and cool place. Food great! Drinks even better. Great service and wonderful American style breakfast (which is hard to find sometimes) Unreal choice of cool drinks. Separate bar area from eating area...More

Alchemy is small in a very boutique-y and artisan sense. Barista coffees with slightly pretentious names, rare sources and described by flower and flavour notes. The coffee was good and the pastries all seemed fresh and appetising. No question of a return visit but I...More
