THE DUKE OF WELLINGTON
Notes Music and Coffee in Covent Garden is an excellent coffee shop and wine bar. A firm favourite in the area, they keep it simple and focus on four passions: Coffee, Food, Music & Wine. They serve Square Mile coffee together with a good selection of wines. However, as my expertise lies in the field of coffee, I won’t comment further on that.
They hold events dedicated to each one of their four passions. Coffee training and tasting sessions are held here and if you’re partial to wine, they offer tastings for that as well. I haven’t been but I have heard good things about their live music events. Phil Wain often plays here, a man also passionate about all of the above and creator of a pretty great London Coffee Map if you want to visit some more great coffee spots in London.
