Much needed - a Californian style bright and airy cafe has opened just opposite Putney Bridge station where there was not much of an option for a coffee before this place opened! I love the vibe, the staff and coffee. I highly recommend it for brunch or a coffee. It is also a great place [...]
Tea at The Promenade
The best thing about being in The Promenade and having a cup of tea there is the leisure that is attached to it. You have all the time in the world (or it makes you feel like you do) and you feel cut off from the outside reality. Above all the Dorchester Blend tea is [...]

2nd Floor, Selfridges
Its been a while since I have written about a new coffee discovery in London but that is because I hadn't stumbled over one yet. One fine evening after work I was walking around Selfridges and we came across the elegant Corner Restaurant. Extremely chic and reminded me of Marcus Wareing's restaurant at The Berkeley, [...]

Melrose and Morgan, a coffee heaven!
I first heard about Melrose and Morgan when I was at the Primrose Bakery and their manager highly recommended I pay them a visit. My experience at Melrose and Morgan was not just about a good coffee, but rather a learning experience about coffee, how it should be made and for the first time in [...]
The movie Chocolat in real life in the form of Cocomaya!
I had the pleasure of spending my Friday teatime at Cocomaya in Knightsbridge. It has to be one of the best Afternoon Teas I have had in a long time. Excellent service, a lovely host Anna and delicious lemon poppy seed cake. What more could one ask for?Sitting in Cocomaya transported me to the movie [...]
Pop Up Bakery and Delicious Coffee at Fortnum and Mason!
It was one of those mornings, cold and frosty in London when I felt like popping out of work and walking in to Fortnum and Mason (which is literally next door) to do some 'brands research'. Little did I know I would come across The Pocket Bakery Pop Up on the 1st floor adjacent to [...]
Turkish Coffee in London!
Despite being a coffee-holic I never tried going out and searching for Turkish coffee in London. I guess I am too overwhelmed with all the coffee shops opening nearby and too engrossed in my lattes, cappuccinos and flat whites. However, I was recently visiting a client of mine, Lokum Istanbul and discovering their latest ranges [...]
