Best cafe Timberyard (Covent Garden) in london for 2016

Great bean flavours. Cappuccino was excellent in texture, temperature and taste. No long black option, although filter coffee was very good. Super cake selection

This is one of my local stops in the morning. I do find it very difficult to get a place to sit as the cafe's popularity grows. The coffee is good and they often have a special latte each season which keeps things interesting. The cakes are also good and can be suited to dietary requirements.

Best cafe Tapped and Packed (Soho) in london for 2016

Awesome cafe, one of the best I've been to!

First ever visit so I had a Costa Rican pour over to see how they handle it. The (very grumpy looking) guy did a great job with the V60, creating bloom, carefully circling the water; one of the best pour overs I've had. The interior was cool and minimalist; a stark and welcome change to the street directly outside. Overall, one of my London favs that I'll visit again. My wife had a (decaf (sorry)) cap which was very good.

Exceptional latte! Made this Melbournian very happy. Great selection of food too.

Best cafe Monmouth Coffee Company (Covent Garden) in london for 2016

Great iced latte. Did the job on a hot day like today

excellent single origin long black. alao excellent chocokate truffles

Really good long black. Cappuccino slightly hotter than I prefer. Great taste and good service

Best cafe Curators Coffee Gallery in london for 2016

Good coffee. Love the piccolo and filter coffee.

Great coffee!! Had a flat white and a piccolo. One of the best we’ve had in London.

A scandi-industrial style cafe. Good vibe. My Flat white was well balance. Good intensity and sweet milk. Good choice of food options. Great place for brunch/lunch stop if shopping.

Best cafe Flat White in london for 2016

Coffee is reasonable if a bit bitter. Food pretty good - smashed avo around Melbourne standards. The head banging music was a bit aggressive for a Sunday morning but worth a visit if you are in the area.

Lovely cafe. Slightly bitter coffee is my only main criticism.
