I was impressed with this Costa shop....considering the busy location the service was excellent and coffee up to the high standard one learns to expect from this chain. There are a few outside tables and adequate indoor seating. Staff are to be commended on speedy professional service. This Costa is ideal for anyone looking for a break on the way... More

Recently I was in London, UK for a week and I happened upon a chain of coffee shops named Costa. This is the shop that Starbucks wishes it could be. The staff is fantastic, efficient, friendly and know their product. A large selection of coffees await you as well as life saving sweet treats like fudge squares and sandwiches to... More

I have tasted Starbucks, Gloria Jeans, San Fransisco's etc, nothing come close to Costa's mocha. Never disappoint, not even once. Too bad they are not available in Malaysia.

We visited the Costa at St. Pancras on 2 occasions lately and we were not disappointed. We sat outside on one occasion and enjoyed people watching. The cafe was very busy, as you would expect, and the staff were very friendly. We had the cheese and ham panini and the chicken sandwich all washed down with nice cups of tea.

I asked for a small lemon iced tea and I got a brown liquid served to me in a Costa cup. I wouldn't have let anyone or anything drink that. It tasted like a skunk had peed in it.
