A damn fine cup of coffee in Soho Square, on the old Coffee Republic site, from the Antipodean coffee bar that first opened in Spitalfields.

Coffee's the main draw, but they also do filled sandwiches, salads, and cakes such as lamingtons.

The flat white was a touch bitter but creamy and rich. The strawberry friand - I could take it or leave it. It was sweet and strong on almond flavour but rather dense. The tables and floors needed a good clean.

Relatively pricey and a slightly aloof atmosphere but the coffee is well worth it. One of those places that works best if you really care about coffee, which I do.

Same as Jordan's. Staff aren't interested, and act like they are selling vintage bordeaux, only it's more expensive!


While the coffee is alright, the staff are horrendous. Asking for milk or sugar in my coffee was greeted by an inusfferable sigh and a feeling that I had just asked the barista to go to Tanzania and pick the coffee beans herself. I would have been greeted better at McDonalds. Not to mention that the coffee is overpriced. A standard americano in London costs £1.5-1.80. Nude's is an extremely overpriced £2.50 for a watery version that is barely tolerable. Save yourself money and mental distress and go some place else.

Excellent addition to Soho cafe scene from an established East London cafe. Welcome to the neighborhood. The coffee taste is spot on, temperature is sometimes a bit low but the milk is silky smooth. Worth a try.


I lived in Wellington, NZ for several years, where I became an insufferable coffee snob. I have to say that Nude Espresso does one of (if not the) best flat whites in London. Friendly staff, too, and a nice atmosphere. V highly recommended.
