12 Most Instagram-able Coffee Spots in London


Coffee is kind of a big deal in London. And when I say "big deal", I mean, of course, a way of life. There must be thousands of coffee shops in London, and yet they all manage to stay in business, because such is the demand of coffee in our buzzy capital with equally buzzy, high-on-caffeine inhabitants.

I'm not a coffee snob - I'll take instant without wincing and shuddering as I take my first sip - but I consider visiting coffee shops as a welcome indulgence. There's something about the vibe, the kooky interiors, the way the baristas pour the coffee with such care, and grind the beans as if their lives depend on it. The scent of coffee is strangely calming (even if the effects of drinking it are not), and you can't go wrong with coffee and a slice of cake.

With this in mind, here are my top 12 instagram-friendly coffee spots in London, and why I picked them.


Because it has lights hanging down from the ceiling and mismatched furniture...


2. AllPress Espresso, E2

Because you know you're itching to take a picture of these neatly stacked takeaway cups from a new angle...


3. Bar Termini, W1D

Because you don't really know what's going on here with the ice cream and coffee, but you want to get involved...


4. Curators Coffee, W1W

Because you're getting serious tile envy right now...



Because you appreciate that the red treacle tins complement the red ceramic coffee cup & saucer combo...



Because the exposed ceiling makes you feel oh-so hipster (and this also happens to be the first Poached Egg Cafe in the U.K!)...



7. Graceland's Cafe, NW10

Because there's nothing better than a cup of coffee with an even bigger cake...


8. Look Mum, No Hands!, EC1V

Because this place looks like it's had a mexican-themed fiesta...


9. Melrose and Morgan, NW3

Because these mini Victoria sponges are giving you a mild case of cute-aggression...


10. Notes Coffee, WC2N

Because barely anyone knows about this one (my bad) so you'll feel super in-the-know...


11. Tamp Coffee, W4

Because you want a piece of this chocolate-y masterpiece, complete with dulce de leche in the middle...


12. The Attendant, W1W

And finally, because this one is in a former underground toilet...
