Brace yourselves, London. On March 27, we'll be robbed of one whole hour of precious sleep as the clocks jump forward and we officially enter British Summer Time. There is, of course, only one way to combat this terrible injustice: copious amounts of coffee.
To help sooth your sleep-deprived soul, here are five places in London offering up bottomless brews.
Since 2010, Jack's has been keeping the good citizens of Clapham buzzing with their free-flowing filter coffee which comes with their all-day breakfasts. Enjoy a bottomless cup on its own for a mere £1.60. Nearest station: Clapham Junction.
Set in a 1913 Baroque building, Villandry St. James is home to some proper posh java. Opt for the weekend brunch and for two hours you can enjoy bottomless bubbles, OJ and (most importantly) coffee. At £40 a pop, this isn't your standard bargain breakfast, but when those clocks go forward you've got to do what you can. Nearest station: Piccadilly Circus.
Located just across the river from the O2, this 1940s American-themed diner is the type of place where you'd half expect to see the waiters on roller skates. But save the root beer floats for later. Instead, grab a seat at the counter and order a cup of bottomless brew for £2.20. The Fonz would be proud. Nearest station: East India DLR.
4. The Diner
Yes, it’s a chain, but The Diner is a solid go-to when all you need in life is a giant stack of American-style pancakes and a jolt of the strong stuff. Take advantage of their refillable coffee for just £2.85. Several locations around London.
The folks at Max’s Sandwich Shop know exactly what we need after a sleep-deprived night: lots of breaded goodness and a good old caffeine kick. They offer refillable AllPress filter coffee for just £2 'because life’s better when you’re not getting ripped off for something that is basically water'. How could we possibly argue with that? Nearest station: Crouch Hill Overground.
