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’d like to wake up here again - without any expectations... even if it’s just for a little while. What about you?
  • This is my far far away 💞 
Where is yours?
  • I read once that “awareness is what keeps any relationship strong”... so, while I understand that we are the master of our own fate, understand that those around you play a major role in your life, but, don’t ever mistake kindness to weakness... 💫
  • Someone said to me today: “Some people are ‘once in a lifetime’ type of people. There is no upgrade after that.” That’s a whole new level of appreciation. 
Hope you have those people in your life. 
Have a beautiful weekend 💞
  • Take a deep breath, and remember who the f*** you are! ;) Good morning 💞
  • I’ve posted this photo many times and it’s still one of my favorite moments.
I listened to a podcast yesterday and it resonated with me so much on the topic of earning trust in the corporate world “Earning trust: consistency in your behavior - trust is developed and established through consistency in behavior” 
I’ve often said that if you have so much moodiness in your life, you will lack leadership and trust, It’s something I truly believe in people. If you want to earn trust, be consistent in your behavior, in your choices and your words... most importantly, in what you believe in... otherwise, people will pull back. Think about that for your Thursday mood :)
  • It’s been a while since I’ve done a just “pick up and go”. The picture I took from outside my room is a reminder of that time in Kenya. Yep, it’s a giraffe.
Lately, everything has been so planned and that spontaneous “go” is something I sort of miss. 
There are definitely few things I’d want to do... for example drive a motorhome somewhere far far away, surf in the arctic... re-visit Kenya... explore Latin America...those are just few of the things. 
If you were to pick up and go, where would you go and what would you do?
  • Summer in @ourfinland was one of my highlights of 2019. On a mission with @travelwithtjd - we explored the south coast and witness the magic of the midnight sun while driving North West. 
From cabin life by the lake, to glass houses by the sea. We hiked, went on road trips, went island hopping, ate a LOT, took ATVs, did BBQs and jumped into the lake!
Join @dennisstever and I on our @travelwithtjd Finland Summer Series on the 21st of June - 26th June 2020, as we take you through the coast and into the wilderness and experience the summer activities that Finland has to offer.

  • I was always in a hurry to be someone, always in a hurry to become something and do everything I set my mind to. I didn’t waste my time on things or people that would get me nowhere. 
But, I crave a slow life, a simple life filled with adventures. No fast cars or expensive homes and for almost all my life, I’ve built a life in which I almost never needed to escape from. I’ve started my year with intentions to keep me grounded... and I intend to focus more on them. 
This is my beautiful reality and this photo represents that to me.
