However you like it – short and strong or flat and silky smooth – a great cup of coffee is an essential, brain-boosting part of any day.

So, whether you are in the mood to catch up with friends, take it easy and people-watch or want a quick fix before you get back to the shops or galleries, here is our guide to the best places for a cup of coffee around Sloane Street.


A café crème or café noisette might be the appropriate choice at this all-day Parisian-style restaurant in a prime position on Sloane Square, but all the usual styles of coffee are available and can be decaffeinated or served with almond, oat, soya or lactose-free milk, as you wish. Accompany with a pain au chocolat or cannelés Bordelais and watch the world go by.

Colbert, 50–52 Sloane Square, London SW1W 8AX; 020 7730 2804

Anya Cafe

Made with beans from the award-winning Fazenda Guariroba farm in Brazil, and roasted in London by family-run company Alchemy, the coffee at Anya Cafe has impeccable credentials and can be served with whole, skimmed, almond or oat milk.  Pick up an Anya ‘Eyes’ portable coffee cup, made from recycled plastic, to show your approval of both beans and café. The cakes and biscuits here may prove too tempting to resist – brace yourself.

Anya Cafe, 9 Pont Street, London SW1X 9EH; 020 4529 0924

Harry’s Dolce Vita

With its beautiful, heated terrace and elegant ambiance, Harry’s Dolce Vita is a glamorous retreat from the hustle and bustle of Knightsbridge. Try the Neapolitan Flip, a signature drink, made using Passalacqua coffee that has been roasted in Napoli by the same Neapolitan family since 1948. Traditional coffee pots from Naples are filled with boiling water then flipped, allowing the water to drip through the coffee. Similar to an Americano, it can be drunk black or with milk, and it serves two smaller cups, or one long one. A must-try for coffee aficionados.

Harry’s Dolce Vita, 27-31 Basil Street, London SW3 1BB; 020 3940 1020

Hans’ Bar and Grill

Set on the pedestrianised Pavilion Road, in the heart of the neighbourhood’s foodie scene, Hans’ Bar and Grill has tables both inside and on the outside terrace, which catches the morning sun. Dairy-free alternatives are available and there is even a selection of vegan Danish pastries alongside traditional all-butter croissants and pain au chocolat.

Hans’ Bar and Grill, 164 Pavilion Road, London SW1X 0AW; 020 7730 7000

Royal Court Bar and Kitchen

Open from 11am until late every day, the Royal Court Bar and Kitchen is the perfect pit stop for elevenses, and its high-vaulted ceilings make it a relaxed, light and airy spot for a cup of coffee by day. In the evening, the buzzy atmosphere of pre- and post-theatre crowds make it a lively spot for a macchiato or Americano with friends, with a selection of dairy-free milks available, plus the option of having your choice of coffee prepared hot or iced.

Royal Court Bar and Kitchen, 50–51 Sloane Square, London, SW1W 8AS; 020 7565 5000
