There’s a reason why everyone’s queuing for Arôme Bakery. Their drinks menu features coffee courtesy of award-winning roastery, Allpress, plus a full range of premium teas and juices. It’s the perfect place to stop for a post-dance or yoga class pick-me-up. While you’re there, treat yourself to a traditional French pastry or try their signature Honey Butter Toast. A delightful French/Japanese fusion comprising a thick slice of caramelised Shokupan bread.

They haven’t been here for long, but Caffè Concerto has already become a go-to place for West Londoners to indulge in some of the finest Italian delicacies in the heart of Covent Garden. Perhaps you might like to grab a take-out coffee and slice of cake and head to the river for a gentle stroll?

Perhaps one of the more secret coffee spots at The Yards is tucked inside Stanford’s. The world’s largest map and book shop, its peaceful ambience makes it the perfect spot to grab a coffee and a book and start planning your next adventure. In the Summer and on the odd day of gorgeous Winter sun, they also have a lovely outdoor seating area to take your drink and feel inspired. Why not see if you can tie in your visit with one of their author events? Have a look at their upcoming events and book here.

Not a coffee drinker? Here are some alternative options…

Italian gelato producers Badiani have more to offer than the finest, artisanal gelato in the West End. While we advocate gelato all year round, their rich hot chocolate warms you up from the inside. Feeling extra indulgent? Top your drink with whipped cream and share a crêpe or a slice of panettone – a seasonal Italian classic.

For those who fancy a little spice this Winter, Dishoom has a selection of tasty chai. You can choose from their house chai blend to the Naughty Chocolate Chai (not suitable for little ones)! India is famous for its tea, and Dishoom also offers a variety of teas such as a Breakfast Assam, Fresh Mint, Ginger, Lemon and Honey: the perfect immune-boosting ingredients.

Spoilt for choice with the diverse selection of hot beverages from all over the world, you could begin your coffee-tasting adventure at Mercer Walk, before heading through to Long Acre and beyond with your drink to keep warm and snug.
