This nice little place opened in November 2011 and it’s a big hit with young locals. It’s easy to see why they come. From the copper lamp fittings to the quirky decor to the massive windows giving a full view of the street scene, this is very pleasant place to while away an hour or two. There’s just one coffee on offer, Union Coffee Roasters’ Revelation blend, and it’s well handled with just one complaint: the cup wasn’t hot enough, so inevitably the brew wasn’t, either. The food ranges from cooked breakfasts to sandwiches, baked spuds and a daily soup and salad. Plus the inevitable baked goods, most of them made on the premises.

My favourite thing about Bread and Bean is that it feels like the community coffee shop. The coffee is decent and the chocolate cookie hits the spot when you are craving something sweet. There are plenty of good options for cakes, but as far as the breakfast/brunch menu is concerned the options are standard and made without much creativity. I had the scrambled eggs with spinach on toast and it just tasted exactly like what it was.
Regardless, I enjoyed my experience. It's a great place to catch-up with a friend and when your friend goes to the loo, you'll be entertained as the locals come-and-go with their dogs.
Absolutely incredible cafe.
1. The unbelievably friendly staff make take this place to a new level.
2. As a freelancer, I have had *many* flat whites all over London. This place takes the #1 spot for me.
3. The menu is fantastic; I know a fair few people to travel serious distances to frequent for a delicious breakfast or lunch.
4. Brilliant vibe. Rustic and homely.
Favourite coffee joint in Archway. Community feel, wonderful staff and great coffee. Like how your local should be... They know your order, they don't push product and you feel welcome every day.
It's surrounded by chains which fall short of all the above.
Thanks Bread & Bean!
I go to this coffee shop every weekend - it's brilliant! Friendly staff and sharp coffee. What more do you want?!
As Italian and as a lover of coffeethis is the best coffee shop in London! cappuccino is just outstanding, even in Italy, I have difficulty to find the same quality.
The staff is lovely and friendly I felt home every time.
About the food, I just tried the fruit pancake that is massive!
Friendly efficient service lovely buzzing atmosphere and great tasting coffee at reasonable prices definitely the best in the area.
I used to pop in there with my flatmate for breakfast; lovely pancakes and coffee too! oh..and the staff is really kind and professional!
Simply the best coffee in London. I genuinely don't know how they do it. All the food is lovely too, and having hands on owners I'm sure helps with keeping cool and friendly staff. The only issue is its so damn popular!
The best latte and almond croissants in London! The handprinted little owls on the takeaway cups are super cute too!
