The aroma is something else. The variety is teas, tisanes and coffee beans/blends is wide. In addition, the chocolate covered coffee beans, available in dark, milk and white, make good souvenirs!

A wonderful array of teas and coffees from around the globe. Knowledgeable staff who will direct your choices when asked. Must serve some of the cheapest quality coffee in London.

This coffee store in Soho is the best place to buy your coffee in London. Note that it's for buying only - although they make you heavenly espressos and cappuccinos at the best prices in the UK, you are supposed to buy your coffee and leave. Even if there was a place to stand at, the store would be too... More

To keep the review simple. A huge selection of coffee beans to buy and will definitely satisfy all the connoisseurs of coffee lovers..! Then... you get the let down service by the sarcastic unfriendly attitude from one member of their team.. Shame really.

After hitting soho shopping in need of a little caffeine burst this place is ideal! Although dont expect seating or fake Italian accents from the baristas... however do expect the amazing authenti shop history. The choices of hand grounds coffees from all over the world. Chocolates and Nougat from the world over. It is really great little place to visit... More

Please visit here, the service is knowledgeable and the coffee range is vast. They sell some speciality tea things too! If this place closed London would lose a real gem.

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
