London Coffee Shop Prices 2016, Starbucks, Costa, Caffe Nero
Author: Bob Handford
The intention of this page is for overseas visitors to London planning a visit to London can get a broad idea of costs before they depart home.
What we’re looking at here are the modern coffee focused chain formats typified by the global brand Starbucks.
In London the three leading chains are Starbucks, Caffe Nero and Costa Coffee. In most of London you\’ll be lucky to walk 100 yards without at least one of them being available and you\’ll find branches within everything from supermarkets to book shops too.
General proposition is a range of coffees, tea and perhaps iced drink, milk shakes and fruit based drinks with a selection of muffins, sandwiches, pastries etc with seating ranging from bar stools to leather sofas. There are of course lots of other outlets that will serve you coffee from pubs to general cafes and restaurants that may well offer a better proposition if you are watching the calories.
However hard the chains try to be consistent, there are often big variations between individual outlets in terms of service, ambiance and quality. Bob is not a frequent customer but friends who are suggest that Caffe Nero is the best combination of the three for quality product, knowledgeable and friendly service and price.
