Angel is brimming with amazing cafes around every corner, but with so many places to choose from, finding the best spot for your mid-morning latte or lunchtime cappuccino can be a bit overwhelming. We know that nothing goes together better than office workers and a highly caffeinated beverage to start their day off right. So allow us to guide you through the best coffee in Angel, in no particular order of course.
Up first we have Saint Espresso located on Pentonville Road, just a short walk from Angel Underground Station. This cozy neighborhood cafe takes its coffee seriously, with eight locations across the capital and soon opening up number nine, this popular spot is the ideal location for your early morning brew. But thanks to the intimate atmosphere and rustic decor, you just might not want to leave.
Located: Angel House, 26 Pentonville Road, London N1 9HJ
With its light and airy interior and community-focused vibe, Redemption Roasters is a local favorite. Not only do they serve some of the best coffee in Angel, they are making a difference to the community by helping reformed prisoners get back into work through professional coffee industry training. It also boasts a beautiful garden space, ideal for remote work if you visit on a sunny day, offering a little bit of calm to break up a hectic working week.
Located: 96-98 Islington High St, London N1 8EG
Tucked away in Camden Passage is a hidden coffee gem. Kapé Konnection may be small but it certainly isn’t a coffee spot to be overlooked. Serving up a selection of great tasting specialty coffee with a smile, it’s the ideal place for a lunchtime pick me up. If you are looking for something a bit more special than your typical cup of joe they serve turmeric and matcha lattes for that added health kick. Plus, they have a range of artisan toasties to enjoy with your cup of coffee or grab on the go.
Located: 10 Camden Passage, London N1 8ED
Vent Coffee Co.
Who says that coffee should be served in a cafe? Venture outside and onto the Islington Memorial Green and you will find a green horsebox trailer. Serving up Old Spike Coffee, a social enterprise roastery helping the homeless find employment, this spot is popular with locals for a good reason. Enjoy the fresh air, sip on some socially conscious coffee and watch the world go by in the very heart of Angel.
Located: Islington Memorial Green, London N1 2XA
How could we not include our very own Jack’s cafe? We may be a little bit biased, but at the top floor of the BDC you’ll find some excellent tasting coffee. Grab a cup to go and take a tour of our historic building or relax in the cafe with a bird’s eye view of our venue and make some new business connections. Open for breakfast and lunch, it’s our go-to place for a caffeine fix and a delicious bite to eat, so why not make it yours too?
Located: Business Design Centre, 52 Upper Street, Islington N1 0QH
