Monmouth Coffee Company

2 Park St.
London , England , United Kingdom

In the late 1970s, long before the term “Third Wave” was coined in the early 2000s to define the current farmer-obsessed coffee movement, Monmouth Coffee founder Anita Le Roy was buying beans directly from single farms, estates and cooperatives and roasting them herself. Though Monmouth started as an importer, roaster and retailer, company now runs two cafés in London. The Covent Garden original is tiny, with communal wood tables. The Borough Market outpost has more room for lingering. Both sell excellent single-origin coffee pour-overs, espresso drinks and a small selection of pastries.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

This new spot has become a favored weekend hangout, mainly for its vast alfresco setting and retractable roof, its delicious bar food (venison sausage, Wiener schnitzel) and its fabulous people-watching.

We loved: The wagyu burger.
