Great Cappuccino and only £1.10

This place in Soho promised to be coffee heaven, filled with the promise of fresh beans and knowledgable staff able to describe the fine differences between a variety of beans.

This little shop has been trading since 1887, the walls are lined with beans and all type of paraphenialia associated coffee, almost like a coffee library. The staff, busy but approachable made me a cappuccino as good as any found at my favourite Australian cafes. There is no where to sit in this shop, but I would have stood in the street to drink this coffee. The icing on the top was the price, at only £1.10 made this a place I will return to again and again.

The place: Algerian Coffee Store, 52 Old Compton Street, Soho

Coffee: A delight and a treat for the senses.
Vibe: like an old time sweet shop, but instead of sweets, coffee.
