5 Coffee Shops In Soho You Need To Try
Whether it's a quick pick up or a leisurely latte, grabbing a coffee before a show in the West End can mean choosing between hundreds of shops. If you're looking for something a little different from a Starbucks or Costa, while you're in Soho's Theatreland, give these great places a try for fantastic flat whites and perfect pastries.
Despite having a bike mounted to the front of TAP, you could easily miss this Soho gem. It's bears the street number 193 so keep an eye out as TAP is the home to incredibly tasty coffees from all over the world. It has a clean and airy feel inside but if the weather is nice, or you've got a good Winter coat, you can sit outside and people watch.
