Time Out says

A cute cafe in the Aldwych area serving takeaway salads, toasties and sandwiches, plus porridge for breakfast on-the-go.

Hip and minimalist, with splashes of colour from its gorgeous Ottolenghi-style displays of modish salads and cakes, and a touch of theatre from its huge, gleaming coffee machine, Lundenwic could be the blueprint for the coffee shop of your dreams. Set up by the founders of Scotchtails (they of the artisan Scotch eggs), it has all the boxes ticked when it comes to aesthetics: white-washed brick walls, contrasting black metal lightshades, discreetly branded takeaway cups and a rack filled with trendy magazines. The menu is similarly on-trend, but has substance as well as style – you can pick up a seasonal cold-pressed house juice to make you feel better about adding a Crosstown doughnut to your order, or choose three salads from the counter and top them with a good helping of halloumi, for just under a tenner. Meanwhile, if you thought sandwiches were the dullard’s choice, Lundenwic will make you think again – fillings range from jerk chicken with red-cabbage slaw and lime aioli to toasties of roasted broccoli with chilli, almonds and cheddar. Great food, good looks and a friendly vibe – who could ask for more?

Came here for breakfast with a friend on a Thursday morning, plenty of seating downstairs and friendly and efficient staff. I had the toasted banana bread with coconut yoghurt, berries, peanut butter and pistachios and a chai latte. It was heaven, filling, just the right amount of sweet, I’m still full now!


Easily the best coffee in the area! Lundenwic is my local coffee shop. The staff are lovely (well, most of them!), the coffee is top notch and the food menu is seriously awesome. There’s always a great range of fresh salad boxes and sandwiches come lunch time or freshly baked treats in the morning.


Anywhere that brews Workshop coffee is a welcome addition to the area, but Lundenwic in Aldwych is a Nordic-inspired coffee shop that also sells great food.  The Beer Braised Onions, Kale + Cheddar toastie and Crosstown doughnuts make it a tasty lunch spot in bright and airy surroundings.  

Best coffee in the area and bright, colourful and delicious breakfast and lunch options.
