The land of 10,000 coffee shops tends to be a title I took upon myself to give to the Twin Cities in Minnesota. But I have to say: London has it beat. By far. Endless coffee shops exist here. From Soho and Shoreditch to Covent Garden and Notting Hill, I’m convinced every neighborhood has at least one trendy coffee shop in it. I’d be incredibly surprised to find out that’s not the case. I’ve tried a bunch of them already and have found some must-tries if you’re a coffee fanatic in London. Take a look.

1. Saint Aymes

Unicorn lattes with edible glitter, walls blanketed in flowers and Vogue posters, and chocolate bars covered in gold flakes make up this enchanting cafe. There’s nothing like indulging in a fancy latte in a place that screams an Instagram-worthy aesthetic.

For those that have read my blog biography on CAPA’s website, I have exciting news; the anticipation is finally over! The coffee-fanatic within me has been having the time of her life trying lattes’ from Goldhawk Road to Central London.  In this blog post, I present to you a list of London’s top ten (and more) lattes I have been indulging in over my stay.

10. Starbucks

I am a creature of habit, as some may say.  Although I have a Starbucks right down the street from my apartment at home, I thought it was only fitting to at least get one drink in London from my favorite chain.  Although my love for Starbucks is never-ending, on my list of London’s lattes I have to rate it for my unoriginality at number 10.

Good news, though, this was a one time experience.  In my travels to Paris I was able to stay away from Starbucks!
