Picked up some takeaway coffee whilst staying at The Courthouse, on recommendation. It was not bad, and the interior was good but the actual coffee was nothing special. Though, that being said, still better than Costa or Starbucks!

Coffee shops like these pop up everywhere around the world, but the nice coffee, tasteful sandwich and above all the attentive staff are really an asset. I enjoyed it sitting here for a while.

This corner coffee is undoubtedly a living proof that great coffee is made by happy people. Sometimes it's not about the ambiance or the coffee roaster, it's about the barista! Every time I'm walking to work I pop in 'The Old Shoreditch Station' for a...More

London is getting more and more expensive on coffee. I understand that get the right machine and beans can be quite an investment but £4,80 for 2 cups of hot water and tea bags take away is ridiculous!

Nice pub with amazing chandelier with cactus. Enjoyed my cocktail. No disabled loo though. Small venue with little room to manoeuvre.

This cafe has spent too long trading on it's location and the fact it used to be a tube station. Staff are too caught up in themselves to worry about good customer service. A few smiles would be nice. Explore the local area, better options...More

It's all here. Music too loud even at breakfast. The "regular" in the usual post at the table by the window banging away on an expensive laptop. Fairy lights flickering. Mismatched furniture. Plants growing from light fittings. Overpriced food. Luke warm coffee. Questionable service. If...More

We happened upon this place by chance. It has a good sense of space inside which is great when you have two young kids. The food, cakes and coffee were fresh and top quality. The cafe has a great vibe and staff were super friendly...More

Good coffee, comparable to the quality of nearby vendors, I just wish the selection of food on offer was larger with a better range of gluten and dairy free options! Great spot though to work and chillout whilst people watching.

Came with friends one evening for the beer rather than the coffee. They had some interesting craft beers and a deal on one of them for £3.50 a pint which was a nice surprise in Shoreditch. The other pints were normal London prices but I...More

The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is
a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be
it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well
connected transportation links dotting its perimeter,
along with an ever increasing variety of shops,
hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore
this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood.
There's a lingering post-industrial grit about
