10 Of London’s Best Iced Coffees That Will Help You Survive This Heat

What’s cooler than being cool? Iced coffee.

‘Tis the season for iced coffee – but where are the best places for a cool, caffeinated cup o’ joe?

1. Brooklyn Coffee, Spitalfields

? by @yasminechanel

Brooklyn make their coffee exactly the way it should be: extra strong. 

? 139 Commercial Street, E1 6EB

2. Timberyard, Covent Garden

? by @timberyarduk

Not content with iced coffee alone, Timberyard decided to serve it with a vegan and gluten free doughnut from Borough 22, too – because why the hell not?

7 Upper Saint Martin’s Lane, WC2H 9DL

3. Ozone Coffee, Old Street

? by @ozonecoffeeuk

Ozone’s Coffee Bar is ideal for the cooler coffee drinkers amongst us. Why not swap standard milk with oat milk for an extra creamy, extra rich and oatily delicious latte?

11 Leonard Street, EC2A 4AQ

4. Paper & Cup, Shoreditch

? by @two.brits

Paper & Cup is a beautiful, not-for-profit social enterprise created by the Spitalfields Crypt Trust selling cheap books and great coffee. Go and enjoy a delicious iced latte and discover your next read.

8 Calvert Avenue, E2 7JP

5. by. CHLOE, Covent Garden

? by @molliemoore__

A vegan fast food restaurant is perhaps the last place you’d expect to find great coffee – although they did come over from New York, and New Yorkers are pretty renowned for their excellent joes – but by CHLOE.‘s iced coffee is pretty damn good.

Drury House, 34-43 Russell Street, WC2B 5HA

6. Kaffeine, Fitzrovia

When it comes to caffeine, these guys don’t mess around. They even named their shop after the stuff.

15 Eastcastle Street, W1T 3AY or 66 Great Titchfield Street, W1W 7QJ

7. The Department of Coffee & Social Affairs, various locations

The Department of Coffee & Social Affairs only serve proper coffee made with proper ingredients – perfect for grabbing your daily caffeine fix (or hourly, depending how much sleep you got the night before).

8. Planet Organic, various locations

? by @planetorganic

Planet Organic have a pretty manic drinks menu. Everything you see can be poured over ice, and they have every milk alternative under the sun. Try an iced turmeric latte, a detoxifying charcoal latte or, just to be safe, one of their more standard options.

9. Monocle Café, Marylebone

? by @jasmine.qgu

The Monocle Café is the perfect place to pro-caffeine-ate (/prə(ʊ)ˈkaffɪneɪt/ – verb – 1. to delay or postpone action until you’ve had a coffee).

? 18 Chiltern Street, W1U 7QA

10. Workshop Coffee, various locations


These guys are The Sh*t when it comes to summer-friendly coffee. They’ve even taken the iced coffee thing one step further with their legendary Affogato made with a freshly pulled shot of espresso and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Now that is cool.
