This smart Hellenic deli and coffee bar on Piccadilly is the first store outside of Greece for the family run Carpo. Candied and packed versions of scores of fruit are arrayed on shelves that line the walls; sacks of mixed or roasted nuts are stacked on the floor; slabs of chocolate mixed with nuts and fruits are displayed behind the glass counters.

There’s also plenty of types of ground coffee  and beans to choose from. Customers lingering near the counter can sit and drink an aromatic Greek coffee, the cup bottom opaque with fine coffee grounds. You are also likely to hear contemporary Greek music, and Greek customers chatting away in their native tongue. A great haunt for snackers with a sweet tooth.

Carpo Located moments away from Piccadilly Circus, at the ground level of one of Piccadilly's impressive iconic buildings, Carpo is a small hellenic deli shop offering a great selection of coffee, nuts, chocolate, honey, dried fruit and more. Exquisite chocolate bars with different types of chocolate mixed with fruits or nuts (or both), great selection of ground coffee and beans, high quality roasted nuts such as almonds and pistachios, all sorts of dry fruit and berries (mango, banana, hibiscus, ginger to name a few). All products are of high quality and therefore a bit pricey (it's central London!) but definitely worth it. At Carpo you can definitely find a treat for yourself or find bespoke gifts. You can also get some excellent coffee to go or to drink there. There are a couple of tables and a bar that you can sit or stand and enjoy your coffee, the atmosphere as well as some really nice music and also enjoy looking at the products. The seats are limited though - it's relatively small. You can also find excellent "freddo" coffee, cold cappucinno or espresso which is served in every greek cafe and is very popular amongst greeks (nothing like the cold brew coffee served in London's cafes - so much better!). That's one of the reasons that many of the customers are greek. The staff are nice and friendly. The interior design is very tasteful and elegant, all the products are placed in such a beautiful way that you want to buy everything. There are also a couple of great paintings. The whole place gives you a sense of luxury. Great coffee and amazing chocolate - definitely a must do in central London.


Feels like stepping into heaven! Chocolate, nuts, nibbles AND THE BEST COFFEE in London. Also, get ready for Celebrity-spotting! Carpo is a well kept secret hangout for moviestars, popstars and sports starts that happen to be in the area. But seriously their coffee is everything! Must visit.


Amazing concept store! Coffee, state of the art design, hospitality and kindness! Love it!


I found this by chance. Great place very attractive. Lovely staff. Hot chocolate yummy. Will go again


I go there almost every morning! I really enjoy the wonderfull smell of fresh roasted nuts and the delicious coffee! The best way to start the day..


It is a brand new concept in Piccadilly and Mayfair residence in general. Have been there myself quite a few times since I take my time to discover what Carpo truly is. I have tried the coffee (the freddo capuccino is one of my favorites) few of their chocolate (my favourite by far is the one with Chilli giving a nice kick at noon where I most need it) and their dried fruit. I find the layout very refreshing and the design of the store innovating. People are friendly and as I found out, they offer the best ingredients from all over the world making Carpo a crossover of civilisations as I call it. I strongly recommend it for the breakfast options and the amazing freshly brewed coffee!


Great business.Well done to the family of carpo. Everything was great and tasty like in Greece.You should try their fresh coffee.


Do not be mistaken this is not an ethnic store ,it only offers ever so subtle notions of bountiful souks.A cosmopolitan shop throughout ,elegant and tip top.My favorite : clusters of almonds covered in chocolate.
