My Ethiopian single origin espresso went something like this: Massive sourness (this goes on for a while) A quick floral note (beautiful flavour, but lasts only for a second) Horrible sourness returns along with some saltiness Strange bitterness Quick finish I did not get any...sweetness, there was no complexity. It tasted like not enough flavour was taken out of coffee. Such a shame and waste of good quality coffee beans. The staff seem nice and the cafe takes social distancing/health+safety seriously.More

My new go-to spot for a remote work session. Great atmosphere conducive to being highly productive but also chill.

We visited this place for the first time and I highly recommend it. The food was excellent and was served in a timely manner and was of good quality. Staff very friendly and polite. A comprehensive menu that's reasonable priced.

I had a skinny flat white with toast and marmite here. Perfectly made at the right temperature and great service

Popped in on my way to the station before heading back to Liverpool. Immediately the lush aroma of fresh coffee completely slapped me in the face. A bright, but not blindingly so, coffee house with a quiet atmosphere. Ben took my order, and was more...than happy to give me a tutorial on how I should be brewing at home. Very knowledgeable, polite and patient. Would I pop in again? Without a doubt.More

I stumbled across this place by accident on my way back from a business trip and was tempted in by the unassuming and welcoming nature of the exterior. What I found inside was some of the most delicious coffee I've ever had, served with a...smile, a tasty lunchtime snack and staff more than happy to offer a rookie like me some valuable grinding and brewing advice. Would love to revisit one day.More

The coffee served at Campbell and Syme is a great treat, especially comparing with other coffees sold at most place in the UK. It is an independent, not a chain, and they have a good choice of great tasting coffees and also serve some food,...with quite a limited choice, but what is served is also excellent.More

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.

A welcome addition to the area - very good coffee, trendy vibe, nice food. Great to have an independent option in East Finchley. Will definitely be back.
