Good coffee in London

I’m surprised at the quality of the coffee available in London – when I was last here in 2004 it was a big challenge.  Now, it seems that there is a small shop on every corner.  Of course the ubiquitous Starbucks are everywhere, but that’s not real coffee IMHO.

The best one I’ve come across so far is Taylor St Baristas – it’s very much like Macrina or Fiore back in Seattle, including the wonderful pastries and fresh food available, as well as the ambiance, free large seating areas, and wifi access.  The closest one to my hotel and the office is here – literally 2 minutes from the office – you can see it down the road.

The picture above includes some wonderful banana bread, lightly toasted with butter.  They were out of the porridge and honey, or otherwise that would have been present 🙂

About Steve Mitchell

I live in Seattle, WA and love sailing, technology, & playing and composing music. I started playing the piano when I was 3, and ended up figuring out many other instruments along the way. I'm an avid sailor and have a 2000 Beneteau 311 named Grace, and sail it whenever and wherever I can.
