Top four London Coffee Spots

London is the home of cute coffee shops – hidden gems dotted all around the city. Here is my top four coffee shops to visit when in London. Each individually brilliant in their own ways.

First we have The Monocle Cafe, in Chiltern Street. They serve the best matcha green-tea cake, layered with fresh strawberries. A must eat when visiting this little coffee spot. Not only will you love the exterior of Monocle, but you’ll love the minimalist, Japanese inspired interior of it! The Monocle Cafe? A must see!

Then we have Brooklyn Coffee, the new kid on the block! They serve the perfect latte’s and the best flat whites! If you haven’t heard of Brooklyn Coffee, you’re seriously missing out on some great coffee with even better conversation. Residing in London’s Commercial Street, this little coffee spot will make your morning, every morning!

Thirdly we have Kaffeine. Tucked away behind the ever so bust Regent Street, Kaffeine serve the best brownies and coffee to date! This hidden gem is most definitely my favourite coffee experience, from their subtle tea’s to their pretty latte’s. Kaffeine will keep more morning coffee run that much more special!

And finally, we have the Workshop Coffee Co. The home of writers, politicians and artists alike, Workshop really aim to make your coffee experience sparkle. Dotted all around London, you’ll find each individual branch is nothing short of special!

By: Maddie from Le Petit Macaron.

Hi, I’m Madiha, or as my friend’s have conveniently named me, Maddie! I live in London and I’m currently in my senior year at university, studying History. When I’m not working or writing papers, I practically live in my kitchen, expanding my knowledge of cooking and baking. I’m currently working for GloTIME, an online lifestyle channel dedicated to the Arts, Travel, Food and Lifestyle. Aside from writing for them, I’m a photographer and I also own my own baking business titled ‘Le Petit Macaron’, if you haven’t guessed, my specialty is Macarons. I would love to open my bakery in New York, it’s always been a dream of mine. When I’m not doing all of the above, you can find me in and around London with a pretty coffee, my camera and a good book.

  • Soneva Fushi is an Island that celebrates the natural environment. The first sustainable luxury hotel in Maldives since 1995, creating a positive impact on Baa Atoll and the neighboring islands. I was proud and happy to be part of the island and learn so much more about sustainability travel. @discoversoneva
  • Hello winter in Dubai. Back here for a couple of days and rushing through the week before I take off again. I was fortunate enough to have met and worked with @zeebalife who I quickly ‘clicked’ with the moment we started chatting earlier this year. I don’t ‘click’ very easily I must admit... and I’m very much in my own bubble... and that’s ok... so when I do, I hang on to them because it just works without any effort. And it’s the best kind of friendship. Happy Sunday! #MyDubai
  • Just because she let go... doesn’t mean she wanted to... 💫
  • Let’s take a ride to the spa together 🌴 @fsmaldives
  • Droning isn’t always easy in Maldives especially when you see seaplanes crossing and guest worrying about their full right privacy. But at sunrise, when everyone is still asleep, and when the jets are no where close by, you can always fly really quick and capture the beauty of the island - ❤️🌴 @fsmaldives
  • I am drawn to your imperfections. I am drawn to shared interests and hobbies in people. I am drawn to the light in your eyes when you talk about something you love. I am drawn to your success and to your failures and most of all your challenges. I am drawn to every non-perfect side of you, because otherwise, everything will be lifeless.
  • How long can you stay in Maldives? For me, I think I can do about two weeks and never get bored, even on rainy days! @fsmaldives
  • From where she drones from @fsmaldives Who said a 5 year old couldn’t use a drone haven’t met Chloè 😊
  • Sometimes, unexpected friendships are the best 💫 - Sunny, @saltysun__  the surf manager at @discoversoneva has started a sustainability surfing programme - one of its kind in Maldives. So when she told me let’s go out at sea in the pouring rain with crazy winds, I just knew we would be friends instantly! I can’t begin to describe how much I adore the sea and what it means to me. I’m in my element. ❤️
  • A wish you were here kind of moment 😊

  • Touchdown back to my favorite place... Maldives. 
Getting involved in our ocean conservation efforts by the marine biologist at @discoversoneva and the sustainability programme they are working on, for example, the Soneva Ocean Stewards (SOS) programme has taught hundreds of children how to swim and encourages the local community to appreciate the precious marine ecosystem surrounding them.
  • The year is almost over - flew by so quick at times and times it passed too slow!! This was shot in January early this year. I have a good feeling about 2018 despite 2017 being a little challenging. What are your Christmas plans? I’m spending it in Lebanon with family and friends, what about you?
