The Best Takeaway Coffee in London
Looking for the best cafes still open to get your coffee fix? Here are five spots around London that serve vegan-friendly coffees perfect for strolls around London or for grabbing an oat-milk flat white on the go.
8a Cotall St, Poplar, London E14 6TL
E5 Poplar Bakehouse should be your first stop before a stroll along the Thames; it’s a guaranteed good day. Fresh coffee with vegan-friendly plant milk can be rustled up via its takeaway service, and while you’re there be sure to grab a loaf of their artisanal plant-based bread or tasty sandwiches.
262 Hackney Rd, London E2 7SJ
Lanark is the trendy coffee spot that will become your hole-in-the-wall/go-to coffee shop. Part cafe, part deli, it's open for collection at the moment, meaning you can stop in for a creamy and earthy oat milk latte and also pick up some deli bits for later (which we very much encourage).
7 Blackhorse Ln, Walthamstow, London E17 6DS
Hermanos had to make this list as a favourite here in the office. Earthy and rich Colombian coffee should be the only way to start the day, and Hermanos provides this in spades. Order your favourite drips with almond, soy and oat alternatives to choose from.
85 Trafalgar Rd, Greenwich Peninsula, London SE10 9TS
Blackeye Coffee is well known and loved in the Greenwich area for its quality coffees (that can be made vegan-friendly) and its distinctive cups. Biodegradable and plant-powered, a cup of coffee from these guys can be environmentally conscious in more ways than one! Grab a cup and go for a wander around the lush green Greenwich Park.
59a Portobello Rd, London, W11 3DB
Farm Girl Cafe is an ideal spot to pick up some brunch, so if you’re local don’t miss out. Providing a range of vegan-friendly coffee with your favourite plant-based milk, this quirky cafe will help your caffeine cravings. For those that want something funky, try the activated charcoal latte for a fun way of getting your coffee fix.
