Unassumingly nestled in the heart of Soho, Algerian Coffee Stores has traded from its Old Compton Street site for over 120 years and, remarkably, is still using the original wooden counter, shelving and display case. The range of coffees here is improbably large, with a high number of house blends alongside single-origin beans, flavoured beans, rarities and Fairtrade coffees
It also sells some serious teas and brewing hardware. If you’re just passing by, the take-away option is the best coffee deal in London: less than a £1 for an espresso, and not much more for a cappuccino or latte; both delicious, and both available with an extra shot for no extra charge.
