South Bank Coffee Guide

January 17th, 2017 | by Jennifer Edwards

South Bank Coffee Guide

Morning macchiato or late night espresso? On London’s South Bank the selection of cafes, bars and restaurants is as diverse as the range of coffees they serve. Check out our guide to the very best venues for your daily caffeine fix!

  • BFI Southbank

    There is a distinctly rive gauche feel to Riverfront at BFI Southbank. Tucked under Waterloo Bridge, right next to the bustling second-hand book market, the terrace is the perfect place to sip a continental-style coffee. Never mind catching a classic movie at the BFI– you’ll feel like you’re starring in one!

    BFI IMAX
  • National Theatre Espresso Bar

    The National Theatre's Espresso Bar has a renowned team of talented baristi. Offering a simple range of espresso-based coffees, made from the finest Mozzo beans, they’ll give you a quick caffeine hit guaranteed to keep you alert during even the lengthiest theatrical production.

  • Kitchen at National Theatre

    For a more leisurely latte, make your way to Kitchen, the National Theatre's brand new all-day café. Here you can linger on the riverside terrace and indulge with a delicious slice of homemade cake as you sip your coffee and soak up the atmosphere.

    Royal Festival Hall
  • OXO Tower

    Enjoy a tranquil moment on the rooftop terrace of the OXO Tower Restaurant, Bar and Brasserie, where the quality of the coffee is surpassed only by the breathtaking views across the Thames to Charing Cross and St Paul’s Cathedral.

  • Park Plaza Westminster Bridge

    Espressamente illy at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge strives to bring an authentic Italian espresso experience to London.

  • Beany Green at Southbank Centre

    If you prefer to take your coffee in a less traditional setting, the quirkily named Beany Green serves artisan coffee from a converted shipping container opposite the Southbank Centre. Grab yourself an iced latte, fall into one of their brightly coloured deck chairs and watch the boats sailing by.

    Southbank Centre
  • 1882

    The Italian dynasty behind Caffé Vergnano 1882 has been serving coffee for 124 years. Aromatic and full-bodied espresso with a beautiful crema arrives on an Armani tray with a glass of water to clear the palate; cappuccino has '1882' stencilled artfully onto the creamy foam. No wonder celebs including Gordon Ramsey and Giles Coren rate this the finest coffee in the world.

    Southbank Centre
  • Skylon

    Sustainability is a core value for the team at Skylon so it should come as no surprise that they only serve Rainforest Alliance coffee. If you’re looking for an extra kick why not try an espresso martini, coffee augmented with a shot of the finest tequila? That should get you in the mood for another cocktail.

    Skylon Restaurant, Bar & Grill
  • The Breakfast Club

    If you’re feeling peckish but don’t have time for a full English make your way to the Spectrum Bar and Café at Park Plaza County Hall. Join their new loyalty scheme for a range of quick, light breakfasts – washed down with your morning coffee, naturally – and after six visits you’ll get your seventh breakfast on the house.
