Love in a Cup serve great, great coffee and ALWAYS cheerful service with huge dose of humour.

The BEST coffee shop in LONDON!!!!! Personal service, love made in each and every cup. Don't forget to try the coffee with Orange in it!

Very friendly atmosphere and nice fresh orange juice & coffee on my way to work. 5 estrellas!!!

Incomparably exquisite coffee and conversation from charming owner and barista who knows your name and favourite caffeine fix - this bijou espresso bar is unique and a haven for real coffee lovers, I go nowhere else!

At first it was the amazing coffee that brought to this little gem of a coffee shop..but now it is the friendly welcome and personal touch that keeps me going...and the coffee is still great!!

Love in a Cup is a very nice place. I always get a very good coffee there, you also can find different Australian snacks which are delicious. Love in a Cup offers tasty pastries that are always fresh, most of them are gone by noon though. Coffee beans are supplied by Nude espresso roasting lab. And a guy who is making coffee is great, very friendly and talkative. I have been a returning customer for about 3 years now and never ever have I left unsatisfied with my order and customer service.
So I recommend Love in a Cup to everyone who is in the area near brick lane!

Always a good place to start your day where Kash will make your coffee is as strong as you dare ... & he seems to know ALL his customers by name 😋

Kash, the owner and barista, creates the best cappuccino I've ever tasted - consistency, flavour, even the perfect amount of chocolate topping - really starts my day off with a flourish. And he has a great selection of music playing too!

Always great coffee from this fab little shop 30secs from Aldgate East. The proprietor is called Cash. He really knows his coffee and is an Aussie who's always ready with a friendly welcome and a smile. Highly recommended.

Friendly service and hands down the best coffee in London!

Love, love, love this petite but perfect cafe with its superb flat whites and excellent selection of sweets and goodies from Australia. What bliss to find Cherry Ripe chocolate bars!

Cash makes the best coffee in London. If you ever fancy a break from work, or you're just in need of amazing coffee, go here and Cash will make whatever kind of coffee you need.

I've experimented with a few coffee shops in the area. This place by far has the best coffee. Absolutely stunning coffee. What's more, the owner is a top dude and always makes me smile when I grab a coffee...

Fantastic coffee shop. No faceless uninspired staff here serving dull coffee. Every visit brings a smile, you must try!

This is one of my favourite places for coffee. The barista is very personable and has built up a nice reputation with his customers. Like his Australia Shop where I've been able to buy Tim Tams for the "slam".

Best coffee for miles luckily on route to my office!  Would travel out of my way as always enjoy the personal and friendly service from Kash. 

Got to be one of the cutest little coffee shops I've ever been to. Always an excellent coffee - greeted with a smile and a chat.

Superb coffee and great personalised service - a cheeky proprietor with a great sense-of-humour who remembers the names and orders of all his regular customers. Coffee shop culture exactly as it should be.

Consistently the best cup of coffee in the E1 area! Friendly owner Kash loyally remembers what his regulars drink, always happy for a chat and down to earth discussion about coffee. I stick to Americanos as great comparator between shops, his is always delicious, and signature Genera cappuccino also delicious.

Not only does he make delicious coffee, Kash (the Aussie front-man of Love in a Cup) stocks a great collection of Australian treats. Need Tim Tam fix? Missing Chicken Salt? Thirsty for a Solo? Kash has them all.

This is an absolute gem of a find. The friendliest little coffee shop in London bar none.

Tiny little place attracting the Antipodean diaspora with its perfect coffees and selection of Aussie snacks. The barista/owner is really friendly. Great to sit on the single table outside and people watch on Brick Lane. I haven't yet found a better coffee in London. This is coming from someone whose dissertation was on the historic cultural and psychotropic effects of coffee. Remember, the flat white or 'flatty' was a Kiwi invention. Closes at four but the Australians do have a better work-life balance.

Best coffee around! Kash introduced the Genera to me here, and I'm glad he did, fruity deliciousness. Nude down the road has all the cool reputation, but this place does better coffee. Really good flapjacks as well. Love in a cup is great!

Great little coffee house. Kash is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Especially recommend the Genera - sublime - apparently found nowhere else in the big smoke (and there would be no need to find it, either - it's not going to get any better!). Take a backseat Starbucks and learn. Keep up the great work - today; Osborn Street. Tomorrow; the world!

Love in a cup makes truly delicious coffee, those years in Oz were well spent Kash!! It may be a tiny hole in the wall, but it kicks arse in term of quality and friendly local atmosphere! think that I have walked by on the far side of the road for the last few weeks - wanting/wishing/waiting to try Love in a Cup. Today it happened. Superb. Strongly recommended. Service, product, experience... all sublime.

Cash(the owner) makes the greatest coffee ever. He asked me exactly how I wanted my coffee and made it for me especially. He also made me taste it and tell him if it was good, which of course it was! Great service and great skills.

LOVE IN A CUP. What can i say..!! its AMAZING. Love the owner. I could chat with Kash all day. Love the location. But best of all is the coffee. Best in london by far...

Awesome coffee, Awesome owner! Go to Love in Cup for my coffee every morning now!

If you're looking for great coffee, served with care, professionalism, and devotion to quality - then this is the place. Returning to London after living in Italy for many years I had given up hope of ever finding really high quality coffee. Fortunately I was wrong. My favorite is the espresso, made to perfection - and no need for sugar or milk. Paul

Brilliant coffee, fantastic owner! If you are looking for that place that will instantly lift your mood, it's Love in a Cup.))

The coffee is amazing. The best I have ever had in London. Finally an espresso an Italian (like myself) would be proud of. Kash, the owner, is so chatty and nice, a person you really want to meet in a gray london morning :D

Ever been to northern Italy and curse yourself for trying a true ristretto only to find yourself let down by any London coffee joint? Not anymore! This guy is up there with the gigolos! Best coffee in town, not only for connoisseurs!

U gotta stop in this summer and meet the owner, Aussie native, CASH! He'll greet u w wicked smile and a killer espresso! He also recently introduced a creamy Ice Coffee that cools u down and pleases ur taste-buds! ;)
