The age-old coffee vs tea battle is artistically depicted here. But I don’t see it as an either-or situation. My heart is with tea, because of the wide variety of infusions on offer. Also, coffee is always slightly anti-climatic as it never tastes quite as good as it smells. I solve the hot drink dilemma by sticking to the simple rule of Coffee Out, Tea at Home.
If you’re in the West End, and you need a coffee, there is only one place to go. Forget about Starbucks and Cafe Nero, go to Vergnano on Charing Cross Road.
I love sitting here with a book, having a ridiculously good cappuccino and waiting to get distracted by some strange behaviour going on on the other side of the glass.
