This outlet (1 of 4 in London) of Sacred Cafe is inside the Stanfords Bookstore in Covent Garden and is one of the quietest places to grab a very good cup of coffee in the area, especially during the weekend when Covent Garden is worse than the Monday morning tube.
Noise levels are low and few people know about this cafe, since its inside the bookstore. If you just need a quiet place to recoup, be able to actually have a conversation with a friend over coffee or are looking for a good cup of coffee (non large-chain) : Sacred Cafe is the best place to pop in for a bit.
This is a tiny space,compared to some of their other outlets, but they had a lot of variety and seating space for about 15-20 people at a time.
We had some really good coffee here. Cold Coffee for me and a Large Cappucino double shot for him (Total Cost 7.80) It was wonderfully brewed. Nice and strong and a perfect pick-me-up. They did have a few snacks and pastries too. But we were just here for the coffee this time.
Once you are refreshed, do browse around the store. Stanfords is the most comprehensive travel focused bookstore you could ever visit.
