    Gems like this is what London is all about! The coffee I was served was astonishing - I knew it was pukka by the look I got when I asked for milk! I got an incredible mixture of liquorish, blackcurrant and, yes, bovril! Insane! It might be a little hipster for some, but I love it. The staff care more about their coffee than being all nicey nice, and that's just the way it should be!

    I used to be regular here and I still visit when I am close by . I love the pretentious baristas , the great coffee and the cnilled atmosphere. Defnitely worth a visit.

    Went here today to visit with a friend who is a real coffee buff. The coffee was lovely, I had a long black and he had a v60 pour over washed Brazilian. Both lovely drinks. The decor was very simplistic, open and clean. Really nice place if you need to get some serious work done or need to read a book without too much distraction. Only thing I can fault was the service was a bit average - the staff didn't seem too interested in wanting to talk or invest much energy into you. Other than that, nice place.

    I love tea and they serve Postcard teas made the right way - delicious teas brewed at the right temperature, for the right time and free refills. Goes great with their toasted banana bread.

    We sat outside on a market day- not a beautiful view but the sun was shining and the coffee absolutely delicious. Waiter service with a smile.

    My husband brought me here first time, he studied in the city and loved this coffee. I did too, the place is cozy, always full, and offers great selection of coffee. I saw that they offered food too (hot plates) but I haven't tried it. I had their coconut macaroon and filter coffees. Yummmmm

    I felt compelled to write this review for two reasons. Firstly, it lived up to my (very) high expectations of what a specialty coffee shop should be (open & sociable space, undeniably great coffee superbly handled, top notch food and stocked with exactly the type of paraphernalia any coffee geek would love to take away). Secondly to act as some kind of counterbalance to the reviews of those who are yet to emerge from a bye gone era of coffee. I appreciate that I will be derided as a "hipster" or equivalent for criticising negative reviews against Prufrock, but asking someone who loves dark roasted coffee to review a single origin pourover is a little akin to asking a Black Tower or Blue Nun fanboy to judge a Trockenbeerenauslese and to think that it's ok on a public forum to call it "wild sharp".... It's perfectly fine to not like what someone is doing and to embrace the old fashioned status quo, but to publicly deride them is pretty darned rude... I am not connected in any way to this establishment but just wanted to provide some appreciation for the work they do... fair play...

    Tried this when I was over for a business trip to London. It is a really nice space but don't go hungry as they really only do coffee and a little food. I ended up just having two coffees. Espresso was great and my flatwhite was good but could be more heated. Bought a bag of coffee to take home to try.

    Prufrock was recommended to us by a local guy in the coffee business whom we met a month ago while drinking coffee st Nomad in Barcelona. We came here twice during our five days in London. The coffee was quite good as were the sandwiches. If you like good coffee I'd give Prufrock a try. As an added incentive it's located on a street that is full of food carts.

    We went here because of the hype we had been reading. So of we go and check it out. Lots of seats and space to sit. Order taken and a simple modification like a change of bread was received with a dumb look. So order wasn't changed. Coffees come fast and were really good. Kids order was totally forgotten and had to be reminded. Food took a good 25 minutes to come out and one was almost forgotten. Once received the food was of good quality. Would go back for coffee but not food. There are other good shops on the same street if you are just chasing coffee.

    Prufrock's spacious and relaxed interior is great for chilling out over an afternoon coffee. Lovely staff and nice seating area but I haven't been able to connect properly to the wifi over my last 3 visits. Coffee is average and a tad expensive as well.

    Visited 22nd June - was served without a smile and waited 15 minutes for a flat white after reminding the person making the drink.. table sticky and unpleasant. Coffee, when it finally came was very average. Two staff members chatting away in the background and a sense of no organisation or management. I won't be back. Steve

    I have to agree with a recent reviewer "weak, expensive dishwater coffee without much flavour". We had an expresso and an Americano. Would not recommend. Will not go back. As the other said: "Why waste your time or money when there is better coffee elsewhere?" Yup.

    Weak, expensive dishwater coffee without much flavour, served up without a smile by several scowlers behind the till. Why waste your time or money when there is better coffee elsewhere?

    Popped in for a quick coffee with a friend after lunch and thought it was lovely. Tasty coffee (but then it should be if you're paying £2.80 for a flat white). It's just so nice to go to an independent rather than hackneyed chain. I would definitely go again if I'm the area.

    Came here on a Saturday and as have found before this seems to be the only place open in the area. The 6oz white coffee was good rather than wow.

    We didn't actually eat here because when we went to order they refused to modify their menu. Our request was just to subtract the slice of bread from the egg dish my friend wanted to order. Ended up leaving and going to a more flexible cafe.
