London’s coffee shops have upped their game when it comes to wi-fi and coffee quality thanks to the recent freelance revolution which has seen a surge in the number of people working remotely.
We’ve rounded up a few of the capital’s top coffee shops where you can get down to business.
Foxcroft & Ginger Soho
Coffice workers flock to this lovely cafe, which takes its coffee very seriously.
Using beans from the Sydney-based The Roasting Party, Has Bean and Caravan, caffeine addicts can expect the coffee to have a smooth clean taste.
Ask the Barista for which seasonal beans are currently on offer. Punters can also choose from a variety of unusual flavours of tea that are made from fresh tea leaves.
There’s also a wide selection of sandwiches, salads, cakes and pastries to feast on.
As well as lightning speed wi-fi, there are also several power points where you can plug in and get working.
