Pay homage to the World Renowned Monmouth Coffee Company. Must visit for any Coffee fan.

Zagat rated "Java junkies" think they've "tried great coffee until" they come to this "busy" Covent Garden"institution" or one of its newer siblings, which enthusiasts say "must be credited with bring

Why go? This Covent Garden institution has customers queueing out the door, possibly because there are a very few places to sit inside, hence the long bench out front.

Always busy coffee place right in the heart of Angel. Have a walk and discover some nice independent shops (vintage, decoration, food)

CoffeeWorks uses excellent quality coffee and ingredients for their baked goods, the baristas are friendly and make a mean flat white. Their iced lattes and home made marshmallows can't be beaten.

Lovely coffee place. Coffee, Tea, Chocolate is really good, as well as their home made patisserie. Every month they have a new art exhibition on the walls. Charming little coffee place!

Tina’s puts you instantly at ease: large communal table in the middle (sofas too) populated with help-yourself jars of Marmite and and jam, and locals helping each other with the Guardian crossword.
