@yipingguo @flatwhitesoho @WeanieBeans @faerietalefoody actually that list was from 2007!
So their recommendations are probably worth checking out — with a few caveats. The article frequently mentions a coffee bar’s use of Fairtrade coffee, and yet that certification has no bearing on coffee quality. London-area roaster and small café chain Monmouth Coffee Company also receives multiple citations of note — and yet their none of their coffee bars made the Time Out list. And, as happens all too often with supposed coffee reviews, there are enough mentions of tarts, snacks, pastries, and sandwiches to make anyone question how much attention they paid on the actual coffee at these places.
