Curators Coffee Studio
Fox and Favour

There may be seating for as many as six people here, and it isn’t strong on comfort. But Curators is a place to cherish nonetheless if you value beautiful beans and expert brewing. The house espresso blend comes from Nude Espresso, guest beans mostly from Square Mile. We had a guest filter, the improbably sweet Colonia 8 Estrellas from Bolivia, perfectly brewed. Anyone adding milk or sugar to this beauty should be booted out. Bought-in food is simple but shows the same care that goes into the coffee. A steady stream of City slaves keeps this tiny treasure buzzing with takeaway orders. It’s easy to see why. And in 2014 they opened a second branch, in Margaret Street W1, near Oxford Circus.

A great team who always greet you with a smile and not forgetting...great coffee! PS. Try their Cascara.


I come here when I want a change (and a walk) from Taylor Street. Fantastic flat whites and match green tea. Their food looks good but like all coffee shops I feel they charge to much for what I am getting. 

Very cool, sophisticated and definitely know their coffee! Reliable great tasting coffee every time.


The flat white here is exemplary - full of body, silky smooth, rich coffee and a hint of sweetness. Their croissants are flaky and crisp with buttery and fluffy innards. The baristas are fun and friendly too. The only problem is that there are too few seats!

I will purposely go out of my way to avoid having to buy coffee from Costa, Nero, Starbucks etc. This tends to be more expensive, but I would rather spend more and enjoy it. That being said, even I was surprised at the prices here. I paid £3.50 for a really small ice coffee, but boy was it good! Definitely a little pretentious and I noticed they don't have cappuccino, latte etc. as an option on the menu. Not sure if this is a statement, but when coffee is this good I don't care.
