Black Sheep Coffee – Southwark

With items such as peanut butter hot chocolate and Norwegian waffles, there’s no mistake that this is an eye catching menu at Black Sheep Coffee. The motto of Black Sheep Coffee is “Leave the herd”. This can be seen written on the walls as part of the decor.

Sticky Mango – Waterloo

There was a bit of confusion at first where the entrance to Sticky Mango was. It was instinct to go through the outdoor seating area but the entrance was actually around the corner.

Le Pain Quotidien – South Bank

Le Pain Quotidien has branches all over London and the world. This particular branch has two floors with the lower level in the exposed brick railway arches.

Additional stools are placed by the bar area. A cold day…

Las Iguanas – The O2 Greenwich

We initially came to this Latin American restaurant for coffee but then ended up returning to it later in the day for an evening meal. Its nice that the restaurant is divided into sections: one part for the restaurant and the other part with comfy seats for drinks.
