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.

  • They say, reality is a projection of your thoughts. I’ve dreamed about sailing north of the arctic for years... I never doubted for a second that it would not happen ‘one day’ but, nothing every prepared me for what I’m experiencing on this trip witnessing the magic of the midnight sun!! I’ve seen and felt things I never imagined existed or at least only on @natgeotravel magazines. This is the start of my 3 day journey sailing in the arctic! 💫

I’m also very excited to announce our new partnership with @pukkatravels for our next @travelwithtjd #TravelWithTJD in October and now, you can join me too! Information will be up tonight on the link in bio!
  • I know escapism is real to so many of us... but you can’t escape yourself and, travel won’t be the answer, so learn to love every single weakness and strength you have because no matter where you go, your thoughts go with you... nothing will disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on. 💫
  • There is something so incredibly special and cozy about boutique hotels that I love so much... like @constancehotels - Do you prefer large resorts or boutique properties?
  • We all have different reasons for forgetting to breathe... and most of us are breathing the best way we can... I think I’m ready to get back out there 💫
  • It’s the ‘have you seen the way he looks at her’ kind of love I have with you 💫
  • What do you see? It’s so easy to fall in love with landscapes and nature in Sweden. I know some of you have realized my insane fascination with Scandinavia but I just can’t help it. Maybe it’s because I am familiar with isolation and I embrace it so well... It keeps my creativity as fierce as ever and it never gets lonely. Maybe it’s because I love the adventure and photography so much... I’m not sure what it is. 
This is called The Mirrorcube - camouflaged mirrored walls reflecting the surrounding. I can’t wait to return!
  • This simply makes me smile! Happy Sunday everyone! Can you spot the baby giraffe? 😊
  • I’m sorting out my summer plans today and added Portugal again! I’m excited to be going back and exploring more landscapes, culture, food, sailing and the incredible nightlife! There is a whole article on my last trip and guides on my website! What are your summer plans?
  • I gave you a heart stronger than a thousand warriors... but it will take you years to learn that not everyone loves like you do... 💫
  • Not bad for a view outside my room window! She looks like she’s waiting for me to come out and play ☺️ - What do you think?
  • Looking back at the exact same time last year on a #TravelwithTJD team trip to Tokyo with @ritzcarlton - This was the view from my beautiful room. One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to! Have you been to Japan? I’ve got lots of articles and guides on the blog!
  • I spent my morning with @fourseasons worldwide team at @fsdubaidifc for breakfast and it was so wonderful to learn more about their new and existing projects, but here is a memory taking me back to Maldives. Isn’t the Maldives just an incredible place!?
