The Antipodean invasion of London’s coffee culture continues with this indie outfit set up by an Aussie/Kiwi team. Pitched in the heart of Fitzrovia, within striking distance of Oxford Street’s
retail jungle, Kaffeine sets out its stall with funky music, highly trained baristas & an eye for quality when it comes to beans, grinding & serving the brown stuff. A top-of-the-range

promises baguettes & focaccias, savoury tarts & vibrant salads (pecorino with rhubarb, sorrel, mango & mixed seeds, say), plus masses of baked treats – brownies, blondies, Anzac
biscuits, ‘pinky snaps’, Portuguese tarts & more besides. Hip breakfasts, too.

There is a bench outdoors too.Kaffeine serves up one of the best smoothest coffees and one that I would return for. The Americano decaf was served in a matching black cup and saucer with soy milk. The food is displayed in the counter fridge and includes toasted foccacia sandwiches, baguettes, tarts and salads. As the food is seasonal, Kaffeine has a menu that changes each week...
