coffee shops in shoreditch

By Sophie - July 05, 2017

Shoreditch is one of London's most rapidly growing coffee scenes. Whenever I'm there, I never know where to go for coffee because the options are endless. From shops with cafes to well-known chains, it's hard to go wrong. Here are my top eight, all definitely worth checking out.

8. Shoreditch Grind
When you come out of Old Street station, you're greeted with the strong smell of coffee from here. The 'Grind' chain is always consistent with their coffee, and instagrammable aesthetics. When I'm in Shoreditch, I tend not to go here because I prefer the independent shops but it's still worth a mention.
7. Sorry Coffee Co
This is in Kit and Ace, a store on Redchurch Street. The interior is sleek and modern, it's hard to miss the large 'SORRY' sign. Their cups have the cutest designs, and that's what keeps me coming back. The coffee is good, but there are lots nearby which are better. 
6. Ozone Coffee Roasters
Having heard great things about this place, I went out of my way to try it. I love the feel of the store, and they have a roastery inside. The coffee wasn't as good as I had expected, but some of their other blends are supposed to be better. If the location was better, I'd definitely come back more.
5. Modern Society
This is a cafe in a shop, one of my favorites. The store is amazing and has some great brands, as well as great food and drinks. The coffee was good, but the service was lacking. I ordered a coffee and ended up waiting over thirty minutes for it, even though the cafe was nearly empty.

 4. Origin Coffee
This is my favorite coffee in the area. The store is well lit and the staff are friendly. Previously, I've tried the cold brew and cascara, and the actual store lived up to my expectations. The location isn't very central, and it gets quite crowded but I'd definitely recommend going out of your way to try Origin.

3. Bulldog Edition
This coffee shop is inside the Ace Hotel and the interior is as well designed as the rest of the hotel. They use Square Mile coffee and pair it with perfect latte art. 

2. Brooklyn Coffee
This one isn't quite in Shoreditch, it's in Spitalfields. The minimalist design of Brooklyn Coffee keeps its instagram presence strong, and the coffee keeps their customers returning. This is one of the best iced coffees I've ever had in London, and goes well with a doughnut from the nearby Crosstown.
This rose latte is on every London food account ever, and it's even prettier in real life. The store is full of instagrammers trying to get the perfect shot of the pink swirl, but the actual coffee is also insanely good. If you've never had a rose latte before, this one won't disappoint you.
