Department of Coffee – Spitalfields

  One of my favourite places in London is the Old Spitalfields Market. It is an excellent place for dawdling, shopping and eating something delicious. It has shops and services of all kinds (clothes, shoes, cosmetics, gifts, restaurants, cafes, etc.). As well as the permanent shops, the market has different exhibitors according to the day of the week. On Thursdays, there is a vintage fair where you can get from

Black Sheep Coffee – Eastcheap

On my way home from the gym, I noticed a new cafe was recently opened on Eastcheap Street. It’s called Black Sheep Coffee and was designed by a group of coffee-loving friends who decided to “Leave The Herd Behind”. They set out to challenging the status quo by sourcing only unorthodox coffees that have a story to be told. This is the case with robusta coffee.     Among more

London Coffee Festival 2017

The London Coffee Festival happened between the 6th and 9th of April. And I was there to check what was going on. If I could describe this event in one word, it would be incredible! In London, there is an ever-growing culture of selection, roasting and preparation of our delicious cup of coffee, whether at home or in the small cafes spread all over the town. At the festival we

Four Corners – Waterloo

I was walking around Waterloo station and quickly did a search for a café. The best-rated coffee shop that appeared on foursquare was Four Corners and it was located just a few feet away. So I decided to go there and see why. The café is on Lower Marsh Street, where commerce is thriving and there are street fairs with food stalls. The entrance is stylish with a sign saying that it has been voted

Ask for Janice – Farringdon

Walking around Barbican these days, I had some free time between appointments, and went for a cup of coffee in the charming Ask for Janice.   In fact, Ask for Janice is a relaxed bar/restaurant, which was named after a Beastie Boy’s song (I loved the inspiration!). The bar speciality is Gin, a traditional distillate here in England. But the menu of the place is quite varied, with options of

L’eto Caffe – Brompton

On weekends my husband and I are always coming up with something to do out. Recently we went to the Victoria and Albert Museum to visit an excellent exhibition on the youth revolution of the 60s and 70s, culminating in Woodstock. In the Brompton region, besides Victoria and Albert, we also have the Natural History Museum. Both are a must see! Come to London; you have to go! Quickly after

Java U Café – Aldgate East

The first coffee shop I visited in London was Java U, which is very close to Aldgate Tube Station. After walking all day long, I could not resist enjoying a warm cup of coffee at Java U.    The place is spacious, clean and cosy with long tables, comfortable sofas, counters, lots of seats and excellent lighting. They have wi-fi which is great to work or sit down for a little, sipping
