You know the design-focused hipster magazine Monocle? They have a design-focused hipster café in Marylebone too – memorably named The Monocle Café!
If you manage to nab a seat out on the pavement it’s great for people-watching, as Monocle is right opposite the celebrity restaurant of choice, Chiltern Firehouse.
There’s Allpress coffee on offer, plus plenty of drool-worthy pastries (from Swedish bakery, Fabrique) and cakes (many of them green, thanks to matcha, from French/Japanese bakery Lanka). They’re all served on airline-style trays that conveniently set the scene for a wildly popular Instagram snap!
