No feedback this year on this cute indie, NZ-scene café in the middle of Berwick Street Market. We continue to include it on the basis that – in 2005 – it introduced London to the ‘Flat White’ and is worth remembering in these parts.

London’s original Flat White was served at this early-wave, Kiwi coffee stop, which first hit Soho’s Berwick Street Market in 2005; and its legendary brews and “great staff” have maintained a fair following over the last 15 years. Its brunch-friendly options include pastries, smashed avos on toast and homemade banana bread.

“London’s original artisanal Kiwi coffee shop” still makes “a wonderful place to chill any day of the week” down to its “easy breezy Antipodean vibe”, plus “a wide variety of music, ever-charming staff and an eclectic mix of Berwick Street locals!”. All this, plus epic brews and “eggs to go with the great caffeine”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
