10 Coffee Shops to Stop by on your Foodie Travels

Posted by

1.Scooter Caffe and Travelling Through

Trvelling T

Step into the Scooter Caffè and revel in the seductive ambience of the jazzy continental bar within. Travelling Through is a bookshop with a heart and soul that aims to connect people through its ‘culture hub’ and art space. The downstairs offers a calming place to enjoy a coffee, slice of cake and look at the art or read a book.

2. Four Corners


Four Corners is riding high with their award for the best coffee shop in the UK in 2015. Plan your next trip around the world with their travel guides and maps.

3. My Place


The cool and jazzy My Place (their paninis are delicious).

Berwick Street


4. Hej Coffee


Hej Coffee is a welcome bolt-hole from the over-concreted Bermondsey Square. The coffee and the food are excellent at Hej (order the ‘viking balls’, a WDC favourite), which brilliantly crams its space with scandi decor. This includes the very Swedish sculpture-in-residence Eric the Moose.

Bermondsey Square


5. The Nordic Bakery


The Nordic Backery, a peaceful Soho Scandi-coffee shop on New Cavendish Street. The choice of food and drink is only slightly more varied than their slogan: ‘dark rye bread, cinnamon buns, coffee’, but then all you really want is one of their amazing cinnamon buns anyway.

New Cavendish Street


6. I Love Nata


I Love Nata is a case in point. It sells two products: coffee and nata (the celebrated Portuguese tarts). Check out Dad’s pastel de nata recipe here, but anyone on a mission to find one of the best in town needn’t go further than this shop — they’ve got the best nata outside of Portugal.

Endell St


7. The Watch House


The Watch House is a favourite and sells luxury artisan coffee and food in its converted guardhouse.

Bermondsey Street


8. Monmouth coffee


Monmouth Coffee has become a legend on the London coffee scene, with a great range of blends for the winter months. Try the Gititu from Kenya for its rich seasonal taste – it has a hint of cherries, citrus, sweet caramel and cloves.

Spa Terminus


9. Love & Scandal

Love & Scandal was recently voted London’s most-loved café in Time Out Love London Awards – it attracts a motley crowd in its unfinished-ply interior.

Lower Marsh


10. Fabrique


Bask in the deliciousness of the Swedish bakery Fabrique for a traditional fika (coffee break) with a cardamom bun – how cardamom ended up in something so Swedish is a mystery, but the taste is a revelation. The bread is good too.

Earlham St
