This coffee shop is an institution on Portobello Rd. Their coffee is so good that they don't care for the look. The place clearly needs a proper refurbishment, but it doesn't stop crowds of locals and visitors alike to stream into. They roast their own beans and if you especially like any of the blends you can buy a bag to take home. They also sell selections of teas and chocolates, although these look a bid sad as do the cakes at the counter. But what is most frustrating is that so many drink-in coffees are served in a non-recyclable cups, time for a change?

Seriously good coffee in a cool, no frills atmosphere which is always full of people fleeing corporate banality. The music is pumping and the service is friendly and knowledgeable. Buy ground coffee at the back to recreate the gorgeous aromas and flavours back at home!

Eschew the chains and head to the Coffee Plant where all the locals go for the best coffee in Portobello.

I also stock up on their tea and their DELICIOUS chocolates  make great gifts for dinner parties or stocking fillers. The Turkish delight is my favourite but they are all good.

Incidentally all coffee and tea is fair trade and the milk is organic, yet the cost is far cheaper than the high street coffee brands, go figure?

Whenever I need a coffee in my neighbourhood, I always opt for Coffee Plant, even though the area is saturated with coffee shops. Coffee Plant consistently produces excellent coffees that are amongst the least expensive that I've had in London, despite being on touristy Portobello Road. I'm quite picky about my coffee; there are surprisingly few coffee shops that can get a dry cappuccino correct, but Coffee Plant gets it right every time!
