Cafe Life London is a celebration of London’s flourishing cafe scene.

Whether you live in London or are visiting for the first time, this book will take you on a culinary adventure around 35 independent cafes in popular shopping streets and neighbourhoods you may never knew existed.

Each story paints a picture of the cafe and what you can expect to find there, including the food and drink, the people and the atmosphere.

The cafe owners tell their story too, offering first-hand insight into the passion and drive that makes their cafe such a special place to visit.

Whether you’re looking for a contemporary cafe that serves excellent coffee or a local hangout that’s off the beaten track, you’ll find it in Cafe Life London.

The cafes included range from old school ‘greasy spoons’ enjoying a new lease of life to uber-trendy new venues in the shadow of the Olympic Stadium.
