It’d be rude not to treat yourself to a cracking cup of coffee on International Coffee Day, right? With London’s coffee scene well and truly booming, it can be tough to find the diamonds in the rough when it comes to the perfect cup of joe. So, we’ve taken on this incredibly tough task for you and have rounded up our all-time favourite spots across London, so that you can get your caffeine fix in style…
The Secret Hideaway – The Neat Café
This one was probably predictable, but we like to think it’s not just bias that puts The Neat Café on the map! Located in the first floor of lululemon’s Regent Street store, it’s the perfect place to relax away from the hustle and bustle of central London. There's free WIFI and plenty of workspace room for those who want to work, or bean bags for those who want to take a break.
The Coffee Experts – Ozone Coffee
We stock Ozone coffee in the Neat Café for good reason – these guys seriously know their stuff. Feast on their incredible brunch offering whilst you work your way through their coffee menu – we’d recommend a V60 or one of their speciality cold brews with infused milk.
For a Bargain Deal - Gentleman’s Barista
£5 for poached eggs on sourdough toast and a coffee? Yes please! As well as this incredible weekday offer, this absolute gem in Borough never fails to make a dreamy cup of coffee, which always tastes even better when sipped on their hidden terrace.
For the Hype - Monmouth Coffee
It’s got a big reputation, but for good reason – this busy little shop in Covent Garden is definitely worth the wait. The staff are always friendly and super knowledgeable, so don’t be afraid to ask questions before ordering your perfect brew.
For a Great All-Round Experience – Caravan
Great interiors, really good coffee, friendly staff and super tasty food – what’s not to love! Their lesser talked about Bankside site is one of our favourite spots near Neat HQ.

For the Best on-the-go Caffeine - Climpson & Sons Spitalfields Market
One of the best roasteries in London for sure, Climpson & Sons Spitalfields Market permanent pop-up is our favourite place for an on-the-go caffeine fix in East London. They even do espresso martinis too!
