Kaffeine was one of the pioneers in London’s coffee scene, and it remains one of the best. During busy times, which means a lot of the day, it’s pretty frantic – try to grab a seat at the back to stay out of the crush. The food here is always good – nothing spectacular, just sandwiches, salads, and tasty baked things made with good ingredients and sold at reasonable prices for this part of town. If the place is really heaving, order your coffee at the counter and stay there to get it, rather than counting on the sometimes-overworked waiters.
