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.

  • I’ve been trying to (really focusing more this time) to wake up and sleep with affirmations. It used to help me a lot in the past then somewhere along the way, I stopped for a while.
I’d love to read what’s yours!! Everyday, I try to read and write new ones so here goes mine for today and I hope it resonates with you 💕:

  • I am always surrounded by love (and water) because all I see is love 💕 
Happy Easter everyone!
  • A huge shift in my energy today as I start working on our next @travelwithtjd - Scandic countries holds an exhilarating amount of joy and peace in my heart, which I’ve learned not to search anymore for reasons to explain it, because some things cannot always be expressed in words. 
We have recently launched Sweden’s Arctic experience on @travelwithtjd other than Finland, Iceland and Norway. The link is in bio if you like to join our polar journeys and have an adventure of a lifetime. Only 2 spaces left for Sweden. Hope to see you on our TJD trips!

  • Sunrise view from my room facing the Athenian Riviera from @fsathens from Arion side of the building which is more laidback.
I have to admit though, it’s good to be back home and back to a routine. I tend to pick up emotions from the people and environment around me, and from time to time, it’s good to be grounded. Thank you Four Seasons for a wonderful experience and congratulations on the opening! ❤️
  • It was 18 degrees at the most one morning, and the sun was shining. Jumped on a @fsathens boat and sailed to visit the Poseidon Temple and an afternoon lunch at hidden gem by the sea with the sweetest people. I love being on boats and grew very fond on them since I was very little. ❤️
  • I was lucky enough to have had 3 sunny days in Athens before the weather turned into beautiful rain. It was a great weekend celebrating @fsathens opening. This is one of the pools at sunset from Nafsika side with private cabanas on the sides. That’s my weekend, how was yours? ☀️
  • I landed in Athens couple of days ago to celebrate the opening of @fsathens - Four Seasons Hotel Astir Palace Hotel Athens is a luxury escape resting on a peninsula along the Athens Riviera, just 30-minutes from the historic city centre. 
I ALWAYS love coming back to Greece 🇬🇷
  • I’m caption-less this morning. Might be because my mind is either overloaded or too relaxed, does this happen to you? 😊 - but here is @joalimaldives from where I drone. Happy Thursday everyone!
  • Back in Dubai for 24 hours and summer has already begun here and there is no way I can manage to have Charlie look at the camera!! My summer plans are getting together and with a little inspiration from @theitalianwayuae we are adding Italy’s coast on our itinerary as well! #TheItalianWay
What are your summer plans?
  • Located on Muravandhoo island on the Raa Atoll in the northern Maldives, @joalimaldives celebrates the ‘Joie De Vivre’ ... the joy of living, the joy of everything ❤️
  • You’ve got to find that soul friend... You’ve got to find that person. I’ve always truly believed that. 
Those which answers to these questions—does our friendship feel easy? Am I better for knowing this person? Do they help me become closer to the person I ultimately want to be? Can we be quiet together for a long time?That's the person I want to be be forever friends with. That's my soul person. Do you have yours? 💫
  • I’ve traded my snow gear to flip flops! I’m always happy to be back at @joalimaldives and since the pre-opening, it has flourished so much and the island has come alive! I’m always impressed with the incredible work they do here in attempts to save the marine life, the co-operation they do for the local islands and the incredible staff that has become good friends of mine now! ❤️
How gorgeous is this overwater villa?
