The quest for London’s independent coffee shops – Yumchaa

I am in love with this coffee shop. I could sit and write, read here for hours and people-watch Soho’s trendy crowd passing by. Although, the Yumchaa coffee shops are expanding (already now four in London, practically a small chain) this still pretty much feels like an independent, neighbourhood café. I love the combination of industrial brick, softened with romantic silver flowery paper wall and a mix and match country chic furniture.

There are solid, wooden benches, which makes it an ideal place for laptop work (and as expected it is heaving with freelancers). Most of all I love the peace and quiet, and civilised atmosphere to it; perfect for a relaxed catch up with friends or catching up with some work.


This place is famous for its amazing range of teas (it is part of its name after all ‘chaa’) but I cannot recommend anything as I am a coffee drinker – the tea menu looks pretty impressive though.
