It’s no secret that London is in and if it’s a stopover en route to Europe for the summer or making the big move, sometimes it’s nice to have a few spots in mind to visit before you land. Compiled below is a mini-list of our favourite spots to wind down in London Town, whether you're searching for the perfect coffee reminiscent of home, or something a little stronger. These spots are also guaranteed to make you feel at home even on the other side of the world and there's nothing better than that.
If it was a big night and you’re in need of a good meal (we’ve all been there) or you’re simply on the search for a hearty dish, look no further than Normans Cafe. With a homely atmosphere and top-notch service, don’t let the queues stop you from securing your seat, we promise you won’t regret it.
Delicious, traditional English food made with modernity at the forefront is the heart of this restaurant and with an incredible French wine menu to pair, there’s nothing else you could possibly ask for. Saint John, although fairly stripped back in its layout, focuses on a beautiful experience with not only the food and beverage but the service as well.
Nothing says London like a good British pub and Four Legs is exactly that. Their menu is a correlation of fresh seasonal produce and one of the best cheeseburgers in London (no joke). Settle down with a pint (or two) and immerse yourself in true British culture in the best way possible.
Tucked in Newington Green is Jolene, a café that boasts incredible coffee and freshly-baked goods in the morning, and a chic restaurant with a menu full of local and seasonal produce at night. Known for their cinnamon buns for brekkie and focaccia for dinner, these are two menu options not to be missed!
Fashion aficionados are well aware of Café Kitsuné, and for good reason. Beautiful coffee and delicious pastries are the perfect way to start your day in London, and when the café is as chic as its mother brand, Maison Kitsuné, there’s no reason to look elsewhere.
