Gonna tell you guys a secret, but y’all have to promise not to invade this place. As most of you know, I can’t handle sitting in the LSE library for longer than an hour without getting all fidgety so I like to go café hopping in search of new study spots. I actually found this place the second week here, but only recently started frequenting as the readings begin to avalanche.

All white interior with light wooden tables, hipster baristas, comfy couches and a downstairs area good for meeting spaces. Study friendly with plenty of computer charging outlets, free wifi and a wide variety of snacks (soups, sandwiches, fruit, granola, pastries, etc.) at the counter. It gets quite busy here so be prepared to share tables with people/bumping elbows with your neighbor if you’re an arm-room-hogger like me.

Their Flat White. 

Comes on a charming wooden tray with a jar of sugar and a glass bottle of free water. Coffee is silky and smooth, presentation is 100%.

Joint is airy and laid back. Note: they have background music playing so bring your headphones if you need that to focus. Quite like their Long Black and Filter Brew here as well, which is rich and citrusy. Coffee beans tend to change as they like to brew whatever is in season.
