One of our favourite central London coffee shops now has a three branches the original on Rathbone Street, this one near Warren Street tube, and a new one off Oxford Street. They've also had a name change from Tapped & Packed to TAP Coffee, (though you wouldn't know it from the outside as the only thing on display is the location nummer - 114 in this case), but the formula remains the same - expert baristas and simple, fresh food. It’s a brighter, light-filled spot than the Rathbone Place original, but looks and feels remarkably familiar. Filter coffees are especially noteworthy.
Stumbled upon this trendy, unbranded café which is a little haven between the endless rotation of Neros, Starbucks, and McDonalds... the coffee is great, the service was quick, it was a pretty good price £2.95 for a large flat white. The loyalty cards and stamps are GENIUS!! Get one to find out why.
Surprised by a queue outside on a drizzly Sunday afternoon. Luckily not much waiting was required. The coffee was decent, and picked small pastry along with it, which you wouldn't know is vegan if it wasn't pointed out.
Nice cafe to pop in for a late afternoon top up.
If you're meeting a friend, be sure to work out exactly which one. There's apparently 3 in walking distance.
I dropped in by chance. On the way to an early meeting I got attracted by the bike hanging above the entrance (no clue how that signals 'good coffee' in my brain). That, and a bunch of people queueing for their cuppa. It was good coffee indeed. I went for a soya flat white. I also loved the way they serve oats: there's a mini porridge counter where you can choose a number of delicious looking toppings. I shall be back to try it when I have more time. If only they also had almond milk (come on, it's been hip long enough already!) and more veggie options.
