About halfway between the hotel and the office, I find myself outside coffee and candy. Not being a fan of hotel breakfasts I normally opt for smaller places, preferable not chains. Coffee and candy seemed to fit that bill. They did not have what I...More

We were staying at the hotel attached and decided to try this for afternoon tea. Staff were friendly and prices were pretty good, wasn't many cakes to choose from but the one we had was nice. Good selection of candy for those sweet tooths.

Fantastic coffee and lattes- haven't tried the pastries. I go here all the time for the amaretto latte and the caramel latte. Only $1.84 with the student discount and the staff is always friendly and nice. Love this place and I recommend to everyone!

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and

Fancy a little liquorice with your latte, or some marshmallows with your mocha?! Coffee and Candy unites, at long last, our two favourite things. Actually, our five favourite things if you count our delicious soups, sandwiches and cakes too! Every hotel needs a cosy café serving organic Fairtrade coffee alongside classic retro sweets. Ours are the only hotels that actually have one, though. We're an inviting little hideaway in the heart of London's greatest public square. Here, candy comes by the jar! Pop in for a quick lunch, or pull up a stool and browse our free Wi-Fi. And you can even grab a bag of pick 'n' mix to take with you on your travels around London!
