Hey boo thangs! How’re you all doing? Easter weekend has flown by and now I’m sadly back at work *weeps into tissue*
Normally over Easter I just chill at home and over indulge, but this year I thought I’d take advantage of my time off work to go out and explore London… and as with any trip out, mine always involves – COFFEE!!!
I am a coffee and tea addict. There, I said it lol. I have a cupboard in my kitchen dedicated to all types of teas; chocolate, lemon, liquorice, chai… anything you could think of, and while I do love sipping a nice warm brew in the comfort of my own home, I do love to treat myself to a cheeky Costa or Starbucks, however, sometimes a girl needs a little change, which is why I made my way to Monmouth Coffee – the best coffee in town…or close enough!
My boyfriend and I decided to take a trip to convent garden in search of what has been described as one of the best coffee spots in London (rated 4.5 on Trip Advisor and ranked 11 out of 756 in London)
As a Londoner, it’s actually ridiculous that I’ve only been to Convent Garden a handful of times,especially as it’s so beautiful and filled with a good mixture of high street and high end shops…
After a peruse around the shops we made our way to Monmouth Coffee which is about a 5 minute walk from Convent Garden square.
We spotted it instantly as there was a decent line going outside which is definitely a reflection of how good the coffee is. After a short wait to get a seat, it felt like we escaped the hustle and bustle of London, and entered a little safe haven. The atmosphere was really relaxed inside, we shared a booth with two other ladies and the staff were so friendly.
I didn’t really know what to order, as they had a minimalistic menu, normally if I go to Starbucks, I order a White Chocolate Mocha or a warming Chai Latte, but it was time to branch out (within reason) so, I opted for a Cafe Au Lait – a very milky option for those that love a creamy blend, and a Latte – for those that love the full power of coffee as well as a velvety creamy taste.
Talking to the barista about my preferred taste in coffee she recommended these two, and ‘bae’ got a Flat White.
I am in no way a coffee connoisseur but Monmouth Coffee tastes amazing and it’s super affordable pitstop. It’s really smooth and each drink tastes different, showing how perfectly blended they are. The distinct taste of each coffee is testament to how they source their coffee too, while they also sell coffee (whole and ground) using organic Jersey whole milk from Jeff Bowles in Somerset along with organic whole cane sugar from Assukkar, Costa Rica.
My boyfriend always makes fun of me and calls me a ‘Starbucks wanker’ but even he appreciated how beautifully blended this coffee was, so, I will definitely recommend this place to all you coffee lovers and re-visit as soon possible.
What coffee shops in and around London do you think I should visit next? x
