TOP 3 COFFEE SHOPS IN SOHO
There many great coffee shops in Soho. People that work in the area really are spoilt for choice. However, unless you like working in these coffee shops, you’ll probably only end up going to one or maybe two on a regular basis. So where are the best places to go?
Having thought long and hard about which cafe merits the top spot, Milk Bar is a deserving winner. What I love about this cafe is its modesty and the quiet but friendly atmosphere. It’s the perfect place for a bit of peace and tranquility in a very busy area of London. They serve Square Mile coffee, have good baristas, and a good menu too. A minutes walk from Soho Square, come get your caffeine fix here!
Tapped and Packed No. 193 is in at second. It is the brainchild of the Tapped & Packed team who were part of the group that pioneered the emergence of great quality, specialty coffee shops in London. They have two other cafes in the area but this is their latest venture. They roast the coffee on site and offer a nice variety of fresh food that tastes as delicious as it looks! With plenty of seating this is a great place to come in groups or by yourself.
Speakeasy Espresso & Brew Bar is just off Carnaby Street and is a great place to sip on excellent coffee if you need a break from a hard day of work (or shopping!). Being part of the Coffeesmiths Collective, you expect high standards and they are well met in this cafe. With a nice array of food on offer and friendly service, it’s a great place to go if you’re near Carnaby Street. They serve Climpson & Sons coffee as their main blend and there’s always a tasty guest espresso on offer. They also hold free drop in coffee training sessions on Thursday evenings if you want to perfect your home brewing skills!
