Who serves up London’s best coffee experience?

by Rajul on May 7, 2010

Where is London's best coffee to be found? Stay tuned to this blog as we explore London's best coffee chains and independent cafes in the coming days

London has been transformed into a “café city” over the last decade or so.  From our traditional pub and tea culture, it seems we Brits have now become a nation of confirmed coffee-lovers.

The ubiquitous branded chains now dominate the London high street, often choosing the same high-footfall positions within a few yards of each other.

Not to be outshone, the traditional independent café is fighting back by applying innovation to food as well as drink.  In a special extended feature, London Hotels Insight will survey the capital’s very best coffee shops.

In part one, we look at the large coffee chains by pitching the “big 3” of Starbucks, Caffe Nero and Costa head to head against each other.  No punches are pulled and a clear winner is announced!

In part two, we put the spotlight on London’s independent coffee shops, including a “new wave” from Down Under offering the antithesis of the “standardised” coffee chain experience.

So coffee lovers should definitely stay tuned!
