Holborn Grind is one of the many “Grind” coffee shops in London. They have several other locations – London Grind, Soho Grind, Shoreditch Grind, etc. – and each of them has something unique about it. Some commonalities include cool neon signs with different quotes, delicious pastries/cakes, and amazing coffee. Each of them also turns into a cocktail bar at night; London Grind has one of my favorite drinks ever – the Clover Club. We stopped […]
Authentic Mexican food is hard to find in London. Luckily, this taqueria just opened a few weeks ago near Borough Market. They don’t take reservations, and we waited over two hours to get a table on a Thursday night, but it was worth it! They make fresh tortillas on a daily basis, and their tacos are all sold individually, giving you the opportunity to try a bunch of different ones. We’d highly recommend the carnitas – […]
This weekend, we discovered the coolest little market in London – Flat Iron Square. This truly is a hidden gem. We couldn’t believe how quiet it was, especially with it being so close to the perpetually-packed Borough Market! Under a bridge archway is an outdoor bar with live music, and about 10 different artisan food stalls are tucked away inside, with everything from ramen to pizza and Mexican food. On Sundays, they host a flea […]
At first glance, Benugo may seem like any ordinary coffee shop. However, take a closer look and you’ll see that this place has a little something to it. There are two things that make this place great: the sandwiches and the cellar. Walk inside and you can order coffee and choose from a fully stocked case of delicious sandwiches. Then go downstairs to find yourself in a literal cave with a bunch of seating where […]
It wouldn’t be fair to post about Monmouth without also posting about Borough Market, so here we go: located just outside London Bridge station, Borough Market is a foodie heaven with over 140 vendors, cafes, and restaurants. With options ranging from fresh produce and meats to made-to-order gourmet bites, you’re sure to find something you like. The best day to go is Saturday, when all of the vendors are open and the market is bustling. Otherwise, the market […]
Located on the outskirts of the vibrant Borough Market, Monmouth serves arguably some of the best coffee in London. This place almost always has a line, sometimes wrapping around the building. There are other locations around the city as well – Covent Garden and Bermondsey (only open on Saturdays). Their beans are sourced from all over the world, roasted at Bermondsey, and delivered to their stores on a daily basis. If you want a seriously good cup of coffee, […]
Just steps away from Holborn station, Hubbard & Bell is situated in the lobby of the Hoxton, a boutique hotel in central London. With its effortlessly cool mix of industrial and midcentury decor, this is the perfect casual spot to grab a bite to eat and hang out for a while. While in the lounge, you can have food, coffee, or cocktails, they also have a full-service restaurant area with formal seating.
