Scootercaffè (formerly Scooterworks) brews its coffees in a strikingly retro 1957 Faema espresso machine. And though owner Craig O’Dwyer is a Kiwi, the air of Scootercaffè is old-school Italian. The space is open late serving beer, wine and spirits, and some snacks are available.

Probably the best cafe in the world, not just Waterloo. Dark, atmospheric and bohemian. Superb music. Decent booze. Weird cakes. Hoarding-SOS decor. Furniture so ricketty it must be an in-joke. And they have a female cat called Bob.
my home from home, and not just because this is the kind of place where sharing a table can get you involved in long conversations about art, music, politics, the world and everything else, where afternoon tea drifts into an evening glass of wine or three when old friends turn up by chance, and a lot because it is where the cat always gets the best chair but she'll happily share her table with you...
I absolutely loved it, chilled relaxed atmosphere, I had a few drinks downstairs on a Friday evening, the cat was cute like its lived there for ever it was as chilled as the surroundings x
Clifford.spent most of my youth working in this place long before it became a café,as this café was my dad Charlies shop for over 20 years, it is fantastic to be able to go back and sit in here,the staff r friendly in this cosy café long may it last
I stumbled across this cafe by chance and I'm glad I did! The beauty of living in London (and big cities around the world) is that while you trip over a Starbucks on every corner, you can usually find a cute, original coffee shop. And this is one of them. Upon entering we were greeted by the resident cat - but instructed not to feed him or he'll get fat. We then ordered two Americanos and took a seat at a quirky table with an antique bong and antique camera. It has a great vibe and the best bit is that two coffees cost me £4!! Right by Waterloo station! The interior has the feel of a flea market with items such an old fashioned pushchair in the window. We will definitely be visiting here again!
Really cosy little place, two floors, chilled vibe. Had a small selection of bottled beers, only one option when i asked for red wine, a cabernet sauvignon but it was lovely. The staff member serving drinks was really friendly. They don't serve food. Funky decor. Would definatley recommend.
Wanna earn your 'Hip' & 'Arty' stripes? Then this is the place for you.. Pretentious as all hell with lots of student-types in very expensive looking scruffy clothes - clearly money is required to qualify as an artist. One nice waitress and one very rude young girl with seemingly a lot to prove. Upon entering I think we disturbed the quite, intelligent 'aura' of the place and this was made quite clear by our hostess.
