Enter this tiny coffee shop and you could be forgiven for thinking you can pick up something a bit stronger than a flat white. Beer bottles are lined up against deep green tiled walls, and even Tonic's choice of name call to mind a bar. But it's part of the Coffeesmiths Collective of coffee shops, and is dedicated to a big variety of proper coffees. The cakes and biscuits were also made by someone who knew what they were doing – we enjoyed a tangy lemon loaf cake and almondy Bakewell slice on our visit. Seating is very minimal (two stools) and there is little space for anything more. It's good as a place to pick up a very well-made coffee on the go, but not recommended for those who want to rest their legs with a savoury bite to eat.

Great interior (love all those green subway tiles!), excellent coffee and speedy service (they always have plenty of staff so it's an efficient little production line!). I highly recommend this place - in fact I reviewed it on my blog here, with lots of photos and full details: http://hyhoi.com/2014/12/tonic-espresso-bar-regent-street-quadrant/

I love this place! I very often pick up a coffee here before work, and I love how they always remember my face and my order. The staff are really friendly and welcoming and the coffee is great! They don't serve food, but they always have a display of cakes on the counter, and it's great how it varies from day to day what they sell. It is not a place you can sit down and enjoy a lunch with your coffee (I wish!), but the perfect place to pick up a take away coffee before work, a meeting or just as you stroll around Soho. I have already finished a couple of loyalty cards. Recommended!
