The lack of quality coffee on offer in this part of town is what drew founder Kissick to set up Formative and these guys put ALL their attention on the coffee. The drinks menu is short but sweet including espresso, flat white, latte, and filter coffee (brewed on V60), and you won’t find any info on the origin or processing as these guys wanna remove the faff when it comes to coffee. But what we do know is that the coffee is good, and you can enjoy it to-go or inside Formative’s minimalist granite, marble and wood interior.

The Gentlemen Baristas have a constantly-expanding portfolio of excellent coffee shops around London. While some are pretty small and more of grab and go kind of places, a couple have spacious seating and an expanded food menu. Our favourite of the bunch has to be the one of Union Street in Southwark, which is part of the Jerwood arts space. The seating is in a bright (and warm) greenhouse and there’s usually some interesting art installations next door to have a peak at too. On the food menu you’ll find a selection of salads, toasties (hello truffle mushroom and cheese), plus more substantial plates such as salmon on rye and avocado on toast. Fresh juices, cakes, pastries and, of course top notch coffee, seal the deal.

Granger & Co. Kings Cross, London, UK

Aussie Bill Granger has made a chain out of his eponymous restaurants, and like the others, the KX branch serves up an eclectic menu that draws influence from around the world. The dinner menu small plates, bowls and grains, big plates, and BBQ – and it’s one of those where you want to order absolutely everything. We find the most winners on the small plates but it’s worth a trip down for brekkie too…those eggs are good and the ricotta hotcakes are legendary.
