    They have an amazing selection of delicious cakes. Ask for your banana bread to be toasted. Yum

    A reminder that the Aussies know a lot about coffee! Great cappuccino, white chocolate blondie and service.

    An excellent example of one of the rowing number of Antipodean style cafés in London. Perfect flat whites.

    One of London's best independent coffee places. Small but cosy and a great place for a caffeine hit.

    Toasted banana bread with home made jam and butter is best thing in the world. Americano is perfection too.

    Friendly service. Good mocha—not too sweet. Not a ton of seating, but it was pretty empty around noon on a Monday.

    Chocolate brownie + americano - fuck me that combo is deadly good. That's a mighty flavourful coffee... if you can get a seat.

    They use Synesso (maybe the best coffee machine) to prepare coffee. Great place to start your morning :)

    I LOVE Kaffeine - it is proper coffee!!! Curious to try their Paleo granola... It's an awesome coffee post Psycle session

    They have good Coffee Beans but don't make filtered because of the squeezed space. Flatwhite was good, in a proper Cup with thick borders. Lady at the till was kinda stressed, ruined the mood a bit.

    I mentioned the Mayor bit as suggested for a free coffee, but I just got a funny look and had to buy a cap. Beautifully presented, staff a bit bolshy tho. Will give it another go another day.

    A very small place with minimalistic seating, but the coffee is impeccable. Nice to sit on the street if it's a bit warmer outside.

    Clearly, the cafe knows what they are doing. I went for double espresso, cold green tea, matcha pie, and lemon cake and I wasn't disappointed . Make sure to visit this place if you are a coffee lover.

    Great Coffee The Aussie way. You also get coffee fruit water to enhance the taste. Good, but not sure how well it works.

    Wish they would stop charging for soy/almond milk. Not fair for them to take advantage of people with allergies or who care for the environment.

    You can actually use the wifi from next door (heineken open something...). But much more important: the ristretto is on point!

    One small step up then another small step up and one small step down to get in. Only high tables in the front, boxes to sit on in the back. Not ideal for wheelchair users but manageable.
