When I first moved to London, I refused to give up on the amazing coffee culture that I got so accustomed to in Melbourne and so began a personal mission to find the best coffee possible. That’s how the Guide to the Best Coffee in London was born.
Through lots of trial and error, recommendations, discovery and a few disappointments along the way, I’ve tracked down some of the best flat whites and lattes in town, shortlisted them and now, mapped them out ready for you to try for yourselves.
So in addition to my original coffee guide (which you can find here), here’s a handy, regularly updated map of the best coffee in London. Enjoy!
What’s your favourite coffee shop in London? Are any of your favourites missing from the map? Let me know in the comments

Hi LNG! As a fellow Melbourne girl about to make the big move across the pond I was stoked to find this post. I thought I saw you mention that you’re always looking for new ideas for posts – perhaps a 2016 update of this one? Would love to hear about the new cafes you’ve discovered in the last year. KT
Hi Kate, I’m glad you’re a fellow coffee-lover too 🙂 Of course, update of the coffee post is a great shout. There’s so many new places popping up all the time to add – but also you’ll be happy to know all of these are still around and still highly recommended 🙂

I’ve been to some really nice coffee shops in Greenwich. Green Cafe is organic, the food takes a while to be served but is totally worth the wait.
There are a few missing for South London – I can highly recommend La Moka and Birdhouse in Battersea as well as The Press Room in Surbiton. From a fellow Melbourne coffee snob, they wouldn’t be out of place back home 🙂
Hey Janice, thanks for the recommendations, will have to check them out and add them to the list 🙂
So glad I now have a go to guide for good coffee in London. I’m an out and out Melbourne coffee snob and last time I was in London I had a lot of trouble trying to find good coffee. Thanks LNG!
Hey Lisa, happy I could help 🙂 I know the feeling, I’m a huge coffee snob too. These are all winners x
