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.

  • Maldives, you are my favorite distraction 🐠
  • I found a little Tuscany in Dubai!! On small roads in the countryside in Val d’Orcia, sunflowers bloom in summer and it gives you a sense of happiness. On my hunt for inspiration of Italy in the UAE, I found a little bit of Tuscany and happiness in Dubai🌻

  • Back in the desert 🐫 and I think summer just kicked in 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • I woke up right here on my back way from Voss to Oslo. 350 metres above Oslo city and right in Nordmarka forest🌳
  • I could be staring at the same mountains that loomed over passing Vikings and I’m in love... Wouldn’t you be?
  • From Oslo, I took the NSB train to Myrdal which is a 5 hour journey, then boarded the Flåm Railway, named by @natgeotravel one of the most beautiful train journey in Europe taking you through west Norway’s most beautiful scenery. Here we stopped for 10 minutes to step out of the railway for pictures. Can you see Chloè by the window too? ☺️
  • The sun doesn’t rise till around 9am, so it gave me a lot of time to sleep in. Flåm is a small village in southwestern Norway, in an area known for its fjords. It sits at the end of Aurlandsfjord. It’s peaceful, its historical, it’s quiet and it’s not a place you will find all over social media. I found these little red cabins while walking around the small village trying not to slip on the ice that covers the road! I did though, I slipped, laughed got bruised and luckily my camera didn’t fall into the water... but it was so close!
  • I’ve found Kattegat ♥️
  • I was always in a hurry to be someone, always in a hurry to become something and do everything. I didn’t waste my time on things or people that would get me nowhere. 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 never needed to escape from. This is my beautiful reality and this photo represents that to me.
  • I was thinking of a caption that can relate to what I was thinking... but the truth is, simple... I was thinking of absolutely nothing at all... just the fact that I was waking up in the middle of a frozen sea. ♥️
  • Gelato for breakfast and it’s melting!! An obvious one ofcourse 😊 That was my next hunt for ‘inspiration in finding a little bit of Italy in the UAE’  project with @theitalianwayuae How many times a day would you have Gelato in Italy? For me, it was around 4-5!! #TheItalianWay
  • I have tremendous respect and admiration for people who are authentic and those who always recognize the people who help them during their journey... let’s try not to forget these people. Happy Sunday!
