“Lovely coffee but let down by the staff”
Review of Story Coffee

Story Coffee
Ranked #534 of 1,420 Coffee & Tea in London
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 15, 2019

I found the coffee was lovely, as was the food (although at £14 for a posh beans on toast it was pricey!) but the staff were quite standoffish. There is a big sign outside saying 'wait to be seated' and signs on the seats saying the same- even when there were plenty of spare tables. Not the most welcoming! Also a group asked if they could sit somewhere and the staff said no- even though there was no one there and the table wasn't reserved- I think the staff just didn't fancy cleaning that area up afterwards! I think I'd rather go somewhere where I feel a bit more welcome.

Located on the Main Street of St.Johns hill this is the perfect place if you want to chill with a nice cup of coffee.
Try one of the lovely cakes and you won’t be disappointed!
Young crowds, friendly staff, relaxing type of music on the background.

Perfect Sunday afternoon ❤️

Straightforward hip (is that a contradiction?) London cafe. Good coffee, good brunch - all the standard, smashed avo, Turkish eggs. Good looking cakes. Bright and airy - friendly staff.

Great coffee, delicious food, friendly staff considering how busy it was & dealing with a few impatient ( hungover) customers. Will be a regular pit stop for us both....... bonus then to discover Story Works down the hill across from the station for our coffee fix on route to work, result x
