The same people also have the container cafe which is part of the view tube (the thing made out of green containers opposite the olympic park.We stumbled across the Counter cafe, Hackney Wick, E3 on Saturday and it's a great little cafe with proper coffee. Recommended!
Good place, sarnies, cakes, tea, etc. I first went there when I had a massage at the Chinese den next door. I don't know how I got out but I staggered dazedly into Yum Chaa afterwards. The staffs seemed to recognise the signs - Chinese massseurs show no mercy - and were most sympathetic.From my blog - this is a great Soho cafe with loads of proper tea and lashings of free wi-fi.
This is a lovely tea shop/cafe in the heart of Soho. You can smell the leaves of the many blends on offer before ordering, and they do some pretty fine food too.
If you bag yourself an upstairs seat, you can watch Soho go by as you drink your tea (or coffee, if you must), and there’s free wi-fi on offer, so you can get some work done – if you’re not busy chomping on the cakes.
It’s well worth a visit. Yumchaa is at 45 Berwick Street, London W1F 8SF, and they’ve also got cafes at Camden Lock and Camden parkway and stalls at various street markets – check out their website: yumchaa.co.uk.
Actually, I posted Cafe Plum (formerly The Odd Spot), opposite Riverside Studios on this thread a few years ago. They do decent scran. There's also The Riverside itself. Those are the best places. The cafés along Fulham Palace road are generally shite.Anyone got any suggestions for a decent cafe in Hammersmith?
A search on the thread found no mentions in nearly ten years... Are there really none in the Smith?
A cafe that doesn't do food? What's the point?The Cable Cafe at the top of Brixton Rd, where you get off the bus to walk across the church yard to the Oval tube.
Very nicely restored old caff, made cool, but not expensive, good coffee, nice cakes, and they are so laid back that though they don't do food they will allow you to bring in a sandwich of your own.

Free wifi, v relaxed friendly vibe.
I went there yesterday. It was nice, but nothing special. It closes at 5pm so you must get up really late!My partner and next door neighbours are raving about the Stage Door Cafe in Catford Broadway. It does a mean, clean, lean breakfast apparently, with good coffee.
I haven't been yet as I can never get up in time.
Silver spoon for the tea, presumably, at ' just under a tenner' ?Mike's on Blenheim Crescent W11.
Breakfast was just under a tenner but for that you got the pick of 6 items (I went for bacon, mushrooms, hash browns, two sausages, black pudding and egg), big glass of fresh orange juice, tea or coffee and two slices of lovely toast.
