Really nice place. Staff is very friendly, interior is cosy and warm. Food is fresh and tasty. The prices are also very friendly ! We loved it and we'll come back here.
Tucked away on a quiet street down some steps, you would be forgiven for walking straight past Bloomsbury Coffee House but that would be an error. This calm and cosy little venue is a great place to while away some time with a good book or your laptop. The staff are friendly and unassuming, the coffee is smooth and the food delicious. I had a really tasty toasted wrap jam-packed with avocado, halloumi, tahini and plenty of salad and pricing wise it certainly competes with the likes of Pret et al. The difference being I’d quite happily sit here all afternoon listening to their chilled music vibe and catching up with friends.
The cinnamon buns and coffee are beyond perfection and the staff are always so friendly making it feel like a little caffeinated home from home to bring your study or just treat yourself ! Oh and the daily selection of vibrant salads are always fresh and delicious
The salads are to die for! Also the staff is really friendly, even when it gets packed at the lunch hour
I love this little cafe so so much. The food is prepared with real love and is absolutely delicious. I also think it serves one of the best 'flat whites' in London.
Great coffee, wonderful cakes, inventive lunches AND venue of Ad Parnassum's high quality concerts, performances and talks with #CultureintheCoffeeHouse
The coffee smells and tastes wonderful; the food varied and delicious. A unique place to frequent; Also some cultural events are hosted there to enjoy and engage in.
A fantastic place for a takeaway coffee or tea, lunch or a place for a meeting. Cakes and brownies are delicious! And all staff members are friendly, helpful, attentive and simply great - I have never left a Bloomsbury Coffee House without a smile on my face
So original, fabulous menu which changes daily, lovely friendly staff and a hidden gem in London town.
A very pleasant place not far from the British Library, with proper chairs instead of stools or benches. Lots of seating for your free wifi use.
I love the coffee and staff are friendly, it can be overcrowded at times and can be loud especially at lunchtimes
Had a nice relaxing time at Bloomsbury Cafe. I had a cappuccino , sandwich and iced cake after a morning meeting in the area. All food was carfully prepared and staff were extremely friendly and attentive. The iced cake was yummy .Will definitely be back again soon to try the cooked lunch from special's board. A little gem of a place :)
Gorgeous cakes and coffee complemented by great background music. Delighted with this place. Shame the opening hours are so short on a Saturday though.
Hidden gem in Russell Square with a small but perfectly formed menu of hearty mains and scrumptious homemade treats. I had a flavoursome minestrone soup that was packed full of juicy vegetables followed by an iced cinnamon bun that was so fresh it was still warm - all washed down nicely with a couple of teas from their wide range (the chilli chai tea was especially delicious). A cosy coffee house perfect for escaping the hustle of London - top marks!
Had a white americano and a pistachio cookie which was very nice, free wifi was good idea although didn't use it, will keep this place to myself, staff very plesant
Really friendly coffee shop that has amazing home made food and coffee. I absolutely love the honey buns! Highly recommended, a must visit when in Russell square or close by.
