You just can’t beat a fine cup of coffee. If you’re a flat white fanatic or simply love a latte, here’s a list of top choices for jolly good joe across London, near your Study Abroad Apartment!

Milk bar, Soho

3 Bateman street, W1D 4AG.


In the heart of bustling Soho, Milk Bar is a quiet trendy haven. Minimally decorated, with dark walls and a simple letter board menu, the coffee speaks for itself. Breakfast available all day, as well as drip filter cold-brew if you’re so inclined. Fuel up or recharge before you face the big city.


Melrose and Morgan, Primrose Hill

42 Gloucester Avenue, NW1 1JD.


This artisan grocer and cafe is a hub of british delicacies. Charming baristas serve up Mission Coffee, sourced directly from farmers and packaged in eco-bags and reused boxes. Take a pew in the chic glass-lined café after a wander through Regents Park and try the raw vegan cacao slice. At £3 a pop they’re 100% worth it.

Caravan, Kings Cross

1 Granary Square, N1C 4AA.


Situated in an old grain store on Regents Canal and next to the UAL Central St Martins art school, Caravan is an unmissable spot for Mediterranean brunch and spectacular coffee. Their Roastery HQ is under the same roof as the warehouse-style bistro - coffee doesn’t get fresher than that. Look out for their beans at cafés around the capital too, or head over to their Exmouth Market and Bankside branches.

Climpson's Coffee Bar, Spitalfields

Pod 3 by Commercial Street, Old Spitalfields Market, E1 6EW.


Climpson & Sons have been sourcing, roasting and selling some of the best coffee in London for over fifteen years. Now they’re getting back in touch with their roots and planting them down at a permanent stall in Spitalfields Market. Warm yourself up on a chilly day whilst you peruse the stalls and shops in the historic marketplace.




Antipode, Hammersmith

28 Fulham Palace Road, W6 9PH


Antipode pays homage to the origins of proper good-ey speciality coffee: Down Under. The first of its kind in the area, Antipode offer Assembly Roast coffee, brunch you can’t say no to and even cocktails in the evening. You’d be a drongo not to visit!


Pigeon Hole Cafe, Camberwell

2 Datchelor Place, SE5 7AP


This delightful cafe is tucked into a little-pedestrianized street off Peckham Road in Camberwell. They offer locally sourced food, including beans from Volcano Coffeeworks, Brixton. You'll see why it’s got a following of regulars from the hip neighborhood. Their own café book swap exudes coziness: intimate and informal with top-notch grub too.
