Twenty two years ago – I gave up a 50 a day smoking habit and replaced my morning cigarette with coffee. One of the best moves I ever made. As the years have progressed however I have searched for a better quality of coffee. My favourite coffee memories are the truly perfect cups that used to be delivered at (seemingly) every time I had breakfast in any French hotel. Sadly no longer the case. I have a stove top – which I adore and use that for the basis of all my coffee when at home. I have arrived here because I am eager to learn about coffee – favourite less known blends and to discover how people enjoy there coffee – and new ways of preparing it.

My first question is – can anyone recommend an independent café in the West End of London – I am heading up there for the day next Tuesday – usual pre Christmas stuff bit of shopping, gallery or two theatre in the evening. I will need my morning fix and would love to try somewhere new.

Many thanks in advance. Simon

I'll throw Tapped and Packed (http://tappedandpacked.co.uk/) and Lantana (http://www.lantanacafe.co.uk/) into the mix as well. Both worth a visit
