It's been a few years now since I went coffee hunting in town.  Back then, it was Monmouth and Flat White that seemed to be top of the heap, but there are no doubt a lot more contenders today.  Any suggestions, please?  Thanks

I like the coffee from Sacred. It's a kiwi place, cosy and they have good coffee. Their food is also really good. There is one right of Regent Street. Yeah, I know sounds a bit touristy, but you would be surprised how many Londoners go there to have a sip. There is also one at Westfield and in Covent Garden. www.sacredcafe.co.uk

There is also a coffee stand in Swiss Cottage. It's a little market near the tube station. I think the market is twice a week. The coffee is also really good, but a bit out of the way if u are further central. I used to live in that neighborhood, so it was pretty convenient for me to grab a coffee there.

my vote for espresso would be Dose Espresso, and for brewed coffee it wouldbe Tapped and Packed.

I've found both to be consistently excellent with interesting coffee.

Hi All,

I'm a Kiwi coffeegeek that's just moved back to the UK - I've been hunting out good coffee spots in London. The two that I would suggest are "Speakeasy" off carnaby st http://speakeasycoffee.co.uk/location/ and Taylor St Baristas ("Aussie Trained..") http://www.taylor-st.com/

Both excellent coffee and run by baristas who care about the taste and quality!

Hi,

I might be a bit partial on this but Vida e Caffe, which tries to serve an espresso similar to the Portuguese one, is quite good. For me, as a Portuguese, it's one of the best espressos I've had in London. They have a few branches spread across London but I've only tried the one out on Mortimer St.
