“Great coffee shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

On previous occasions visiting Borough Market wondered what the fuss was about with queues around the corner for Monmouth's! This time the queue was bearable so gave it a try and it is certainly good coffee and a quirky atmosphere compared to the usual chains and enjoyed it.

“Great coffee and fascinating history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

When you see a queue around the block for a cup of coffee, you know it's going to be interesting so just have to try it! Great to read up, as well, about Monmouth, the first coffee house in the UK. My macchiato was amazing and well worth coming to Borough Market for!

“Just fantastic.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

I queued outside in the sweltering heat, somewhat annoyed that my friend was subjecting me to a wait for my morning coffee, but my goodness was it worth it. Friendly staff took our order while we waited in the queue and even offered us free samples of that day's filter brew (telling us to note the 'plummyness' and other nice little snippets of connoisseur knowledge). The queue moved quickly and our order was waiting for us just as we paid. We sat inside at the lovely communal wooden table, where bread, jams, honey and butter were on offer for £3.50 per person. We had opted for the slightly naughtier option of pain au chocolat and pain au raisin. The coffee was outstanding. It is truly a coffee-lover's paradise. I will definitely be visiting on my next trip to London. Fantastic.
