The CoffeeWorks Project – Circus West Village

The CoffeeWorks Project is an independent family run business with a simple aim: to showcase the best quality coffee, tea and food in a friendly and relaxed environment. The CoffeeWorks Project has been awarded Time Out’s Love London Awards three years in a row and voted one of London’s Top 30 coffee shops by the London Coffee Guide – establishing itself as one of London’s most progressive speciality coffee houses. With successful outlets in Angel, Blackfriars and Leadenhall, they have made their mark in the London coffee scene.

The Black Cab Coffee Company cafe – Riverlight

The space is contemporary, cosy and cool with large windows that filter natural light throughout. It’s the perfect spot to go for a boozy brunch (served all day and yes, they’re licensed) or an afternoon coffee and delectable dessert. The place is a blend of local and global where beans from Costa Rica and Guatemala are roasted in-house and honey is brought in from Essex meadows. The service is attentive and engaged and the quality of the food is top-notch.

Pret-A-Manger – St Georges Wharf



Vagabond – Circus West Village

Vagabond sprang out of frustration with the London wine scene in late 2010. Back then, independent wine retail was crashing; multiple merchant chains had closed and wine drinkers were largely caught between bland, mass-produced wines with dishonest discounts at the supermarkets or ultra-specialist wine stores that exuded off putting superiority. They saw a different way.

The General Store – Circus West Village

The Battersea General Store offers a huge range of goods from all around the world, while also celebrating local craft produce.

Sainsbury’s – Riverlight

Waitrose – Embassy Gardens

Tesco – St Georges Wharf
