What The Watch House in Bermondsey lacks in size it makes up for in character. In fact, if it isn’t London’s most charismatic coffee spot then we have no idea what is. It has a roaring fire, great sandwiches and pastries, an excellent espresso bar, and - as its name suggests - is housed in a converted 19th century guard’s shelter on the edge of a graveyard. It’s also open till 6pm which is a good two hours later than most cafés we know.
