I have been here for several times to enjoy the best London's coffee. The cafe' is near by the borough market, located in the heart of capital at London Bridge. I am addicted the Latte coffee after coming here. However, in order to enjoy the best coffee flavor here, either you have to come early or waiting and queuing for... More

There was a line to get coffee. Filter coffee is made by putting ground coffee in a paper cone filter atop a mug and pouring hot water through it. At this location you seem them grind your beans (a single serving) and place it in the filter and pour the water. How much fresher can you get? I understood the... More

There is often a 20-30 minute queue to get a coffee. This is in a city, and area, full of great places to get a cup of coffee and, when you've been here, you can see why. The coffee is simply amazing. Fantastic amounts of flavour and regularly changing selection of filter coffees too.

I always treat myself to a filter coffee if I'm in Borough Market. Worth the queue in my opinion! Never eaten here but the spread looks good (bread and jams on the tables, range of pastries)

This place was definitely for coffee lovers. Once you stepped you foot there you would see the long line of customers waiting for their coffee. The barista was kind and willing to answer my question about the kind of coffee bean. The latte art was created with love too, I could see how the barista touched up his final work... More

Just the best. Staff are fantastic and spend the time letting you sample and discussing the coffees on offer. I buy no other coffee.

This place always has a queue, but the coffee is worth it! And besides, they are very efficient with their queue management: best we've seen in London! Definitely worth a visit if you're hanging out for good coffee.

What a delicious cup of coffee! I had read 'best coffee in London' and it's true. These guys are very talented & truly take pride in their product. Visited both the Borough Market location as well as Covent Garden.

I've been here on a few occasions and loved the 'Flat Whites', so creamy and delicious! If you're allergic to dairy, just a note that they don't do soya milk or any alternatives. I normally prefer soya in my milk - not allergic, but went without on this occasion. They said they use a local farm's milk. It was lovely... More

Staying in Southwark

Neighbourhood Profile
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
