Meet me for coffee in London
Where to go next? Londoners are lucky to have a wide variety of great cafés with flavours from all around the world. In this blog, the UnderTheDoormat team is happy to introduce you to our favourites coffee shops where you can sip your coffee in the morning, enjoy an afternoon tea or savour delightful pastries.
The Roasting Party
'Great coffee built on passion, friendships, and trust' is what you'll find at The Roasting Party. The café has a sustainable mission with organic growth, 'green' packaging, biodegradable takeaway cups, and lids.
The coffee is flavourful, and the snacks are almost as great as the warm welcome you will receive from the staff! If you have lactose intolerance, the café offers a wide range of milk options, so there is something for everyone! They also have gluten-free baked goods which are delicious.
So, what are you waiting for? 'Come to the party'

They welcome a wide customer base, so whether you meet friends, have lunch with your family, or meet a business partner, you'll be approached by friendly staff with a warm welcome.
The guests will also be delighted by their delicious and fresh ingredients which are locallysourced. This is a place not to be missed so go there, enjoy the good vibes, the fresh air of Surrey Hills, the tasty coffee, and the delicious food.
Have you ever visited Australia? If the answer is no, you can experience the taste of it at least at Lantana café.
Lantana is for people who believe that if you are going to eat it or drink it, it should be savoured. Their menu changes depending on the seasons as they want to serve fresh products. Lantana prepares delicious dishes for their vegan and vegetarian customers too with a variety of plant-based food.
The coffee is located on the doorstep of our favourite foodie hub, Borough Market, and in the bright and spacious open dining room, people can enjoy their breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, and everything they need in between.
Lantana 'welcomes you to Australia in the heart of London'!

The Dynamo is the bike rider café so after a long ride, you can drink a refreshing orange juice and maybe eat a delicious pizza.
Depending on when you go, the location can be either relaxed or very buzzing. The peak times coincide with brunch or the post-training of cyclists and triathletes when the place can get quite lively.
Get comfortable in this café-bar and enjoy the cool pod structure where you can experience energetic vibes and hear Londoners' laughs. Also, you don't have to worry about where to leave your bike as the place is specially built for cyclists.
