Everything here was pretty good - ambience, coffee, food. One thing that stood out was when I ordered my ham and cheese croissant, I was asked if I wanted it warmed up. I said yes. When my croissant came later, it was... flattened. I was...More

Popped in just before work in the week not long after they opened and got served straight away at the till and did not wait long at all for my drink. I went for a skinny cappuccino and it tasted great. Will come back again...More

This is how a coffee shop should be! Nice aesthetics, excellent cakes and more importantly excellent coffee. The cappuccino is up there amongst the best I have had in europe. Keep up the good work.

I was in London for work and made a point to try a new coffee shop each day. This was my favorite; for the cappuccino quality, ambiance, and location/convenience.

Visited recently. Good selection of coffee and beans, along with some cold drinks (including bottled, cold coffees). The temperature of the flat whites I got could have been slightly hotter (they were warm rather than hot) but they were tasty. It might be worth asking...More
