If you’re precious about your coffee, that’s okay: these guys are a little obsessive, too. Aside from the bean, grinder and espresso machine selection, they’re even discerning about your cup size so that it is the perfect vessel for your chosen type of java. Kaffeine run one-on-one coffee courses if you want to take your love affair to the next level and it’s conveniently located just north of the major shopping drag of Oxford Street. With your perfect coffee frothed and in hand (and perhaps one of their freshly baked goodies, too), grab one of the outdoor benches; it’s the perfect spot to watch the young British media crowd rush by on bikes, penny skateboards and Louboutins.
Fitzrovia is a mix of creative agencies, quirky cafés, big stores, small boutiques, pubs and office buildings. During the week, it’s where you’ll see Londoners going about their day-to-day; at weekends, it’s mostly frequented by enthusiastic shoppers. Oxford Circus is the closest tube station but Goodge Street is also close by.
