If you are in London, you definitely need to stop at one of the Grind locations and try their flat white or have a delish breakfast. There are five options around the city in the most popular areas where you can get a little caffeine shot to wake you up in the morning (or afternoon). All Grind has nice staff and lovely but cool interior design. So-So Instagrammable. I adore the pink neon lights and the pink menu, it’s quite hard to resist to take some pictures. Most of the Grind locations are an espresso bar during the day and cocktail bar at night.
Paul is a French Bakery, Café, and Restaurant where you can eat the best croissants, macarons, cakes or any patisserie. You can have a big cup of cappuccino, latte or try their espresso while you having a chat with your friends. Every Paul’s design is so elegant, the staff is friendly and some of the cafés have an open kitchen where you can see how the cakes are made. Pauls are around everywhere in London, it is not hard to find one. I really recommend to visit Paul and taste their coffee and wonderful pastries. Everything just tastes amazing.
There are some Black Sheep Coffe around the city but we usually go to Canary Wharf that is the closest to us. The coffee is not the average-taste, it is simply amazing, the best I’ve ever drink in my life. They make every cup of coffee from origin specialty beans around the world such as Ethiopia or Peru. This café is such a nice place to work too. If you are in London, I recommend to go to Black Sheep Coffee and try their ‘Nitro Cold Brew’, the baristas are the coolest and so nice.
There are so many cafés to choose from if you are in Shoreditch. One of the best choices that I recommend is Attendant. I found this place on Instagram of course and I was so happy when I finally tried this place. Attendant is famous for its high quality and sustainable coffee and each café is designed as a welcoming space to bring diverse people together. Delicious coffee, cool interior design, and yummy food options. You definitely need to taste their incredible coffee if you are in Shoreditch or visit the Victorian toilet in Fitzrovia that they rebuilt as an Attendant coffee shop. How cool is that?
Notes is a collection of coffee shops and bars serving specialty coffee, wine, and cocktails. They also offer food throughout the day that I really want to taste in the future. I already tried the pastries and as a pastry fanatic, I can say they have some delish ones. My favorite is the Cinnamon Swirl. The Notes interior designs have an industrial vibe with a nice feeling around the whole place. If you’d like to go to have a chat with friends or drink a cup of coffee in your lunch break this is the place to go.
