If you know your coffee, then there's no other option than this cafe in East Finchley. This is one of the top cafes in London, no doubt. They understand coffee and prepare every single one with care and expertise.

Campbell and Syme is a fairly typical independent café serving superb coffee with a limited but good quality and healthy breakfast / food offering. Staff are great, really friendly and the atmosphere is bang on.

Worth seeking out, this small coffee shop serves a seriously good, and full-bodied coffee. They roast the beans (properly) and you can buy the beans for your home grinding and consumption. Friendly, authentic, and super coffee. A+
