I love this place. The staff are amazing and friendly, the coffee is great, and the vibe is completely relaxed. Great place to go and read / work / study. Yes it's trendy but not at the expense of humanity - the staff genuinely seem to enjoy chatting to the customers and it always gives me a lift. Compared with other coffee places the prices are normal for London. But yes above all else they coffee is always good, and that's by Melbourne standards.


Not only is CoffeeWorks undoubtedly the best coffee in Islington, it’s one of the best in London! The coffee is skilfully made by experienced barristers who are friendly, welcoming and always happy to see you again upon your return! If you want Starbucks, this isn’t the place for you because CoffeeWorks is about real coffee for genuine coffee lovers! A must on any trip to Islington!


One of my favourite spots in not just Islington but London! Great coffee, lovely staff, and amazing atmosphere! ...and did I mention the eye candy that passes through the door...I will be back very soon.


The place has a urban cool touch and that is probably about it. The coffee is no better than elsewhere, it took ages to be served a simple take-away latte by rather condescending staff members, who are feeling cool because they are behind the bar or serving you and you're not. Don't bother, there are many nicer places in the area.


I've never seen a place so hipster-targeted. You have to order from a woman with an iPad even though the space is small and she could just say the orders to the guy making the coffee next to her... Also the only place where i've ever seen an americano is more expensive than cappuccino. Overpriced and overrated.

hot chocolate fiend

Closes at 6pm which is odd given that London is an international city - probably losing a lot of custom because of that. They've just started doing hot chocolate.


Love this place - a cool, little hangout with great 'light bite' food, savoury and sweet. Pared down, warehouse interiors and great for people watching.

At last a good proper coffee shop! Only down side was that they close at the moment!


Great little spot with super friendly staff. The coffee and pastries - especially the brownies and Eccles cakes - are excellent, though I can't imagine who is forking out the 4 (FOUR) pounds they charge for some of their filter coffees, no matter how slopey or shade-grown their origins, or how hand-brewed the individual serving. I stick to the £2.50 flat whites and cappuccinos. They come with some lovely foam art. Wifi can be spotty, but the ambiance makes up for it (unless you need to submit a job application in the next hour).


The coffee was terrible, it tasted like just milk. The staff were slow and condescending it took way too long to make two take away coffees which were a waste of £5. I expect somewhere with such a "trendy" look to provide a decent service but I am obviously mistaken.


Site is great, space is nice, coffee improving but let down badly by putting chairs up on tables while customers sitting there are still drinking!


Coffee (black americano) was strong and well made but the waitress that took our order clearly got out of the wrong side of the bed. Would go again though, just for a well made strong coffee.
