Review: Kaffeine, Fitzrovia

Kaffeine is one of the big players in the central London coffee scene. It’s hugely active on social media, always busy and has a great spot on Great Titchfield Street – an area itself which is fast becoming a must-do street for all things gastronomic. They were one of the first cafes to contact me…

Review: Double Shot Cafe, Covent Garden

Covent Garden is, to many tourists, the centre of London. The square around which fellow tourists gather – pausing from a day’s shopping, watching the street performers or just passing through and soaking up the ambiance.

However, with new high-end offices being built around the area, there’s a lot of venues opening up for these office workers…

Tucked down alley ways, under railways arches, in the middle of a park are some of the things that make London the great city it is. One of these such finds is Wilton’s Music Hall. Somewhere in between Shadwell…

Review: Zucono, Angel

About While Upper Street in Angel might be classed as ‘Restaurant Mile’, it does lack good independent cafes. Yes, there are a few, but you get the feeling that no matter how many cups of flat white you sell, it just wouldn’t be enough to pay for premium rents. So many of the area’s great…
