Batch Baby, De Beauvoir Road, London

What was once a temporary passion project is now an award-winning multi-roaster speciality coffee shop open seven days a week. Batch Baby is serving up speciality coffee from all over the world on the border of Islington and Hackney. They celebrated their two-year birthday in late 2023 and were awarded the Grounds of Innovation award by BRITA UK. Stop by for great coffee, great food and great vibes.


Coffee Collective Jægersborggade, Jægersborggade, Copenhagen, Denmark

There’s plenty of great coffee shops in Copenhagen but one of our favourites is Coffee Collective. They have a few spots around the city now, so look out for them for a coffee fix wherever you are, but we especially like the Jægersborggade location, as it’s one of the city’s nicest streets, packed with boutique stores. The coffee is on point, there’s nice outdoor seating, and even a few tasty pastries to enjoy.


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 clue’s in the name, yep Intermission are all about taking time out of the daily grind for a coffee (and a sustainable one at that). These guys not only ensure equality is met within the supply chain, but also cause no unnecessary harm to the planet too. Located just outside of West Hampstead station, they’re serving up brews fresh from their local roastery so you can drink good and do good.


When it comes to coffee, these guys pay attention to the finer details and that means the latest kit, top-notch baristas and a smooth running service (to make their super smooth brews obvs). You’ll find the Paradox coffee cart at Netil Market, serving up a whopping range of guest roasts as well as their own too.


Prufrock aims to support local producers and small scale growers, serving coffee from Square Mile alongside featured roasters from all across the world including Five Elephant, Coffee Collective, La Cabra and so many more. We’re also big fans of their brunch, with the likes of the Prufrock Benny and ice-cream brioche sando on the menu.


This is one of the capital’s newest coffee haunts and has taken inspiration from Japanese minimalism (which means amongst the loud houses of Notting Hill you really can’t miss it). Expect a full body house blend, fruity single origin options and a matchaccino that’s made from some of the best matcha around.


WatchHouse have set the standards for modern coffee, making it one of our fave places to enjoy a brew in town. There’s six different houses all serving the speciality stuff and good food, but we love the OG Bermondsey branch.


Rosslyn is an Irish and Aussie-inspired coffee house pouring shots without the pomp. These guys only care about what tastes good, offering seasonal coffees carefully selected each and every week. Expect a flat white like none other and great conversation with the baristas behind the bar.


Granger & Co. Kings Cross, London

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 consists of 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.


Caravan King's Cross, Granary Square, London

The King’s Cross outpost of Caravan not only boasts a large industrial dining room but a separate coffee bar and on-site roastery. They take their coffee very seriously, so not only can you buy it freshly poured but you can order a whole range of blends and kit to improve your own coffee game. If you’re after something more substantial than a cup of joe, their all-day menu won’t disappoint, from the bangin’ brunches to the small plates, which are a mash-up of Asian, European and Middle Eastern flavours to the pizzas.


Ivory House St Katharine Docks E1W 1AT

There’s no better place to get your shots off than White Mulberries. The coffee shop serves up a damn good cuppa joe and their brunch is pretty spot on too. With all their goodies made in-house or delivered from local bakeries, it’s all super fresh and totally Instagrammable.

Sure Chief Coffee does a good cup of joe, who wouldn’t with Workshop Coffee and Drip Coffee at hand?! But Chief Coffee is the BOSS because it’s filled with classic pinball machines from the 80s & 90s; think Cactus Canyon, Monster Bash, Medieval Madness and Cirqus Voltaire, and they even offer lessons if you’re a bit rusty.
