You won’t be surprised to hear that there’s no shortage of good coffee shops in London, but one that I’m always drawn to is Monmouth Coffee, set in the heart of Borough Market.
It’s not new either – in fact it has bean here (sorry, dreadful pun) for over a decade. The open front of the store adds to its charm – if you’re lucky you might get a seat at the large table that fills the inside, but at the weekend expect to queue for an age just to buy a drink. The range is incredible with blends from America, Africa and Asia – the baristas pick your beans for you and if it’s not so busy they’ll talk you through the varieties.
It’s the perfect place to buy coffee and stroll around the market at leisure. By stroll around, I obviously mean work up a sweat fighting through crowds ten deep. Enjoy!
