If you love coffee you will love it here, get a Flat white, Perfect, what I like about the Monmoth is that your coffee comes at the perfect temperature, also lots of lovely biscuits and cakes to accompany your perfect coffee....Enjoy

Myself and my partner in caffeine are always on the hunt for excellence in coffee. Luckily, these days, in London it's relatively easy to find if you know where to look.

Borough market's outlet of Monmouth - like the Maltby street market outlet and the covent garden outlet (and no doubt a few others) - serves excellent coffee, even on extremely busy days. And this is a key thing to note: even running at full bore, the quality of the coffee never seems to diminish at Monmouth, due to care and precision in roast, freshness, grind, temperature and pour.

We usually drink espresso - so have no comment on the milk quality or ratios, the latte art or the variety of milk coffees available. But the taste of the coffee itself - in an espresso there is nowhere to hide - is fantastic. Complex and vibrant, never burnt.

Monmouth is obviously not just about a good hot cup of joe - you can freshly roasted beans in a variety of single origins or blends - they will recommend one for you for espresso, filter, aeropress etc.

It can require a bit of patience, as the lines can be formidable, but it's definitely worth it.

THIS IS NOT STARBUCKS!! This is seriously great coffee! These folks know how to pick and roast their beans. Its all done in house and there are a lot of different farms to choose from. I can't recommend this place enough. If you have ever been to a place called Cafe Vivace in Seattle, I would rank Monmouth as a close second to quality, taste, and preparation.

I run a tea room in East Sussex, so I am very fussy about my coffee. Monmouth do the best coffee in London. I always go for the 'extra hot' latte and a delicious croissant. Don't get put off by the queues- it is well worth the wait. Or go for the bread on the sharing table with scrummy jams...

Just on the opposite side to the market. A small, but cozy coffee shop. A good variety of good quality coffee and a few desserts on offer. All very reasonably priced. Not many seats available though.
