Damson Cafe, London (Soho/ Covent Garden)

Happened on Damson Cafe quite by chance, cutting through behind CentrePoint/ Tottenham Court Road station/ New Oxford Street. 

It's on Saint Giles High Street, opposite the new food court development where Jamie, Byron et al have opened shop and just round the corner from Monmouth Street/ Neal Street as well: so in a nice spot - and fills a serious niche insofar there's now a great cup of coffee available in what was previously a bit of a decent cup of coffee wasteland (unlike others, I don't care at at all for Monmouth coffee, which is cramped, with average coffee and huffy staff). 

A quick Google tells me Damson Cafe has been open only a few weeks so far. It's a relaxing, light space and reminds me of a coffee shop I like in Venice Beach, California. 

The staff are laidback and the snack driven food selection looks good too. Had a great Flat White. Only thing missing was a 'help yourself' filtered water option, but the staff were happy to fix some glasses when asked. 

Definitely adding Damson Cafe to my 'Best Coffees' in Central London list.
