Both food and drink are of the highest standard with gorgeous homely eats coming from local sources and the coffee is ever changing, each time you go you will have a slightly different coffee experience.

Kaffeine, London:

At Kaffeine they take their coffee seriously, with freshly ground beans and weekly 'guest beans' every time you visit you'll get a slightly different experience! This café located just off Oxford Circus is small, busy and bustling, especially around lunch time! Don't let its popularity put you off though, the exquisite food that changes with season, freshly ground coffee and the notoriously friendly staff make it well worth the wait!
