Caffè Nero (Soho)

90% love it
Coffee spot situated in the heat of Soho
Sweetly positioned corner café (Italian = caffè) offering good and reliable espresso-based hot and cold coffee drinks, with a view. Nero is a big, nationwide chain whose Soho outlet – with its all-important proximity to catwalk-like Old Compton St – would have you thinking it was a gay business what with the mostly male clientele sipping drinks at tables on the pavement and enjoying one of the gayest views in London. Nero's Soho rival Costa, previously just a bean's throw away, closed down in 2014, taking many gay and cruising coffee drinkers by surprise. An August 2015 refurbishment played havoc with the decor, resulting in a kind of industrial Victoriana. For the record, the first Nero opened in 1997 (in South Kensington).

      A must for people watching!
      Located in the central heart of SOHO, a great place to feel the energy of London and what it as to offer. Your basic cafe menu but its location is prime for people watching and getting around the city. The intersection of SOHO, Chinatown, Locals and shoppers makes for nice scenery in a wonderful city filled with great things to do and experience. Highly recommended if you want some down time to relax yet still feel the vibe of London!
