TheBrunette reviewed The Counter at the Delaunay
A fabulously fun place to enjoy coffee and cakes like it's 1935. The coffee is of a kind you're more likely to have in Vienna than Melbourne, being less velvety and having a slightly more bitter (although in no way unpleasant) taste. This just makes it a perfect foil to the divine black forest gateau!
TheBrunette reviewed Royal Teas
Don't let the name put you off - this place takes their coffee at least as seriously as they do their tea! Offering a good range of both espresso based and cafetiere coffee it's a cute spot to take a break from sight-seeing in Greenwich.
TheBrunette reviewed Love in a Cup
A tiny cafe that is so much more than the sum of its parts. They use (very) local Nude coffee and I'm sure the fact that it hasn't travelled far between roaster and shop adds to the amazing flavour. They only have limited seating so more a place to grab a coffee, and perhaps some breakfast, before heading on your way.
TheBrunette reviewed St David Coffee House
Serving some of the best coffee in SE London, this cute and charming cafe is one of my favourites. The coffee is prepared with a lot of care and attention which does justice to the deliciousness of the Square Mile beans they use.
TheBrunette reviewed 46b Espresso Hut
The sweetest, loveliest coffee shop in London; everything about this place is utterly adorable - from the rough wood tables to the jars of amazing jam. Best of all of course is the coffee, served by friendly and brilliant baristas.
TheBrunette reviewed Brew (Battersea)
Always packed with families enjoying the good quality brunch. Can get a bit too noisy and the servie a bit slow when they're really busy - I guess they're a victim of their own success! Coffee is generally good - not sure which beans they use but they have a complex flavour and the milk is correct temperature and consistency.
TheBrunette reviewed Salvation Jane
The second venue from the creator of Lantana, this place is much bigger in size and scope. The coffee is still the main reason to visit but if you're feeling hungry they've added an expanded brunch and dinner menu. Corn fritters, French toast and the like are all really well done.
TheBrunette reviewed Maison Bertaux
London's oldest patisserie is sadly no longer its best. The cakes still look fantastic but are not always as fresh as they could be, sadly. Coffee is OK, although it has always played second fiddle to the cakes. Whilst not being hugely comfortable it's still hugely atmospheric though and a nice enough place to hide away with a good friend for a while.
TheBrunette reviewed Rhubarb & Custard
Cute neighbourhood cafe. Coffee is pretty good and they have some lovely home-made cakes. Particularly good for kids, they have a childrens menu etc. Just one warning - they are often closed for childrens parties so worth checking with them before you go as have been disappointed to get there and realised its closed in past.
