The best coffee I had in London. These guys know what they are doing. The homemade cakes and sweets are great. Next time I would definitely go for a some wine from their interesting selection.

Popped in here whilst in London to top up the caffeine levels. It is located not far from St Paul's Cathedral and whilst of the main drag it isn't that hard to find.
It is a small shop with some benches and stools in the window if you want to stay in.
There were four different coffees available, 2 espresso and 2 filter. I went for a Guatemalan filter which was excellent.
There are some sandwiches, pastries and cakes if you are hungry. I had a ham and cheese croissant which was very good. The cakes were very tempting but I resisted. May give them a try on my next visit.
If you like good coffee this place is well worth a visit.

We made a slight detour to try out the coffee in this well recommended place - it was well worth the extra steps and indeed merits a special trip when we are next in London.
The flat white coffee was absolutely top notch - they even had a choice of two beans which matched well the slightly differing tastes of my wife and me.
We will certainly be back!

It may be small, and crowded at times, but Alchemy continue to lead the field in this area for connoisseur coffee. If you like coffee, you owe yourself a visit.
And recently they have added a selection of craft beers and gourmet nibbles to the menu, making it even better!
