Loft Coffee Company

Time Out says

Sungjae Lee learned to love good coffee in his native Seoul. Since moving to London in 1988 he'd thought about opening a coffee bar. Late in 2012, after a year of planning, building and training, he achieved his ambition. The tiny space (table seating for 10) used to be part of Mr Lee's estate agent office, which he still operates next door, just 30 seconds or so from the tube station.

There are a few pastries from Gail’s Bakery and a good set of teas and a few soft drinks. But mostly there is espresso and its derivatives, made with beans from Square Mile and Crankhouse. What we tasted when we were there in 2013 was exemplary: great beans perfectly brewed to give a beautiful crema with a rounded sweetness. Finchley Road is not exactly crowded with great places for coffee, and that makes this diminutive spot not just unusual but very welcome.

Best coffee in the area. Small place, but everything done with care and love. And I like my coffee.

Their coffee is the best in the neighbourhood if not the whole of London - simple! Friendly relaxed vibes with chilled music 💯🎯

I go here every day - the coffee is excellent, service wonderful, just the best local coffee shop!


I think I've found my new local. Good music, cool menu, and great coffee.

loooove everything about this place..Even the sugar tastes nicer..  :) 

I treat myself to a latte at Loft if I'm late for work, early for work, got caught in the rain, am enjoying the sun, feel down, feel great. Any excuse. A total gem.

I'd wanted a little coffee place ever since I moved here 8 years ago, and there hasn't been one - this is now my daily ritual - a coffee and muffin or croissant from Loft. It's a cute little cafe with chunky little tables and a cosy but trendy feel to it - friendly staff, loyalty card, delicious coffee and things to eat - I come here at least once a day for a fix!

Lovely little coffee shop. Great coffee and very relaxed. So nice to have somewhere like this in the area :)
