Not an original suggestion probably but a solid one! I love this place, conveniently located in the heart of London in Seven Dials (don't worry even the locals get lost around here :) This lovely place is a must for any coffee lover because they serve up the most delicious cup of the black gold in London, and they know their stuff! Ask them about the beans, taste some, buy some, relax! Also if you head down to Borough Market make sure you nip in to the branch there too as it's much bigger and another great venue. Enjoy x

Grab a quick coffee, a delicious pastel de nata and go! They have a different and unique selection of the beloved and famous portuguese 'pastel de natal'. Different flavours as apple cinnamon, strawberry or a raspberry nata. The pastry is crispy and succulent. A little taste of my lovely origin country in this lovely city of mine.

I first came across this Danish chain in Copenhagen, and fell in love with its signature Cinnamon Scroll. They've recently opened up a few cafes here in London, which I could not be more happy about! Snuggling up with a good pastry (too many to choose from) and coffee is the definition of Hygge

Probably my favourite take away coffee spot in Clerkenwell. Their blend is really strong, aromatic, and balanced in taste. They also offer plant-based alternatives to milk, a range of pastries and other snacks. Don't miss a chance to grab one if you pass by!

A sweet coffee shop just off of the main Covent Garden square and a stones throw from the Royal Opera House. Head in after a busy day wandering around and exploring for a caffeine filled refuel before you carry on.

QUIRKY ATMOSPHERE! Everything in one place! Located on a short street off Brick Lane, this venue has great entertainment, music, drinks, coffee & food! Love the chill and "like-at-home" atmosphere. Oh, and depending on the time of day, or your mood, Café 1001 has something for everyone. You can relax inside, drink coffee/ eat a pastry and do some work on one of the many couches upstairs. BBQ outside on the picnic tables? Go for it! Fancy dancing (at night)? Rock out in the backroom.

A quiet​ little coffee shop in the courtyard of modern office blocks. A great place for pastries and well made coffee, and an ideal location for work meetings.

One of my favourite coffee spots in London. It serves fantastic artisan coffee. They use Monmouth beans, which are, by far the best beans for commercial use. The coffee is always on point, with chocolaty undertones and a silky smooth milk. Have their cakes too, those are always fresh, made in small batches by a local baker. got your coffee? walk out and turn left until you get to a park to enjoy yourself

One of the best brunches in London. The staff here are the friendliest bunch you'll meet, and the beautiful tiled interiors make this somewhere that you can while away a couple of hours alone with a book, or with friends over a coffee and cake.

I usually go for a flat white in most places, but I am partial to a mocha if they're made right- with a rich dark chocolate. This place does an exquisite mocha. Also great sandwiches and snacks!
