RE: The Coffee@'s, one's on Bermondsey Street
south of Tanner Street
and one's on Tower Bridge Road
at Druid Street
. Read the reviews though. I can't stand the one on TBR, haven't been to the other one but have been told it's better (can't possibly be worse). Don't know exactly where SOBO is on the overly hip barometer, but you may have the same problem with Coffee@.
If you don't like those, there's one or two more on Bermondsey Street
I think. And if you don't like those either, you could try the Bridge Lounge on Tooley Street
. They're nice enough, make a good stong cup of coffee, have a comfy couch and depending on the time of day may not mind you lounging around but who knows, they might. They have a nice big window with a river view. After that you should try the Cat & Cucumber on TBR & Druid Street
. I've never been there, I just like the name and the shabby, well-loved looking building. The reviews make it sound appealing and who knows, maybe they make good coffee and don't mind people sitting around for hours?
