The Coffee Works Project

The Coffee Works Project is actually one of the first Coffee Shops I visited in London, back in 2012. Every time I am in Angel it keeps me coming back. I’m normally just passing through, so I usually grab a take away, but this time I was meeting up with a friend for a sit down catch up session.

TAP – Wardour Street

TAP Coffee used to be one of my regular coffee shops. I first discovered the one on Tottenham Court Road on my way to work, and made it part of my morning routine. Soon after they opened a store in Soho, and despite it being a bit of a detour to work, I would always find myself visiting for a coffee. These days it is a bit far for me to make it a regular visit, but on this occasion I was meeting a friend for breakfast, and TAP is perfectly located middle ground.

Tuck Shop – White Rabbit Studios

I had been meaning to go to Tuckshop at the White Rabbit Studios since I had heard about it before Christmas. Unfortunately that time of year is riddled with public holidays, and other engagements. Hidden in the back streets of Shoreditch, Tuckshop is a cafe front for the White Rabbit Studio space behind, which can be hired by artists, photographers, and for catered events.

10 Belles – Paris

I went to catch up with an old work friend from my Sydney days. He’s a local Parisian, so he knows where to get the good coffee. He recommended a place called 10 Belles, again near Canal Saint Martin. It seems I spent a lot of time around there. I guess it is just a popular place.

Word on the street is the owner on 10 Belles spent some time in Sydney and has a coffee shop in Surry Hills.

Tuck Shop – Paris

Rise and Shine! My first day in Paris, and there is so much to do, and so little time. Every moment not spent walking the Parisian streets is a moment wasted. Today was about exploring, getting a vibe of the streets, and trying to enjoy a little bit of that cafe culture the French are famous for. During my aimless wanderings I stubbled upon Tuck Shop, by Canal Saint Martin.

Tuck Shop

It was a particularly cold day, so I was glad to take a moment to get off my feet, and defrost a little. Tuck Shop had a very welcoming vibe from the front, with plants hanging from the windows, and piles of books to help pass the time. It’s the kind of place you can Imagine spending an afternoon, with friends, or relaxing on your own.¬†

Vagabond – Finsbury Park

It started out as such a lovely day. A 30 minute tube ride can make all the difference. When I arrived at Finsbury Park the sky had turned all grey, and there was a cold wind in the air. I’d been told to check out Vagabond, and decided to seek shelter and meet people there for a coffee.


Vagabond has great coffee in a surprising location. It’s almost like you wouldn’t expect it to be there. It’s located on the corner of a block, the kind of place you’d expect to find a news agents. There are tables with benches out the front, that on sunnier days would have made for a beautiful sun-pit. The perfect place for a morning coffee.

Columbia Road Coffee

There is a small shop on Columbia Road that is no wider than a small window.



With the long line queueing out front, I was intrigued, and double backed to get myself a coffee.
