Caffeina brings the authentic taste of Italy right to the heart of London.
We’re a traditional coffee bar serving products that are 100% Italian. And, with room for up to 20 diners, we’re a place where you can stop by for a drink and chat, meet up with friends and sample some truly delicious, inspirational food.
Natural ingredients are at the centre of our philosophy. We work with suppliers we trust to bring you high-quality, organic food and fabulous Italian coffee.
These partners are people who understand the great culinary traditions of our country and share our view that the best food is always fresh. We say ‘carpe diem’. Our food is made and sold on the same day. After all, we want our customers to remember Caffeina and talk about us to their friends.
In fact, we think that once you’ve tried our coffee bar and talked to our friendly team, you’ll like the experience so much, you’ll want to take a little piece of it home.
So, in addition to our Caffetteria (where our barista serve Hausbrandt coffee from Veneto) and our enticing Baguetteria (where you can order a Panini and a range of other tasty menu items), we have also set up a shop. Just make your selection from a range of authentic Italian produce.
In a short time, you won’t think of yourself as a customer of Caffeina. You’ll see yourself as a friend. And that’s just the way we want things to be.
To some, sustainability is a buzzword or easy bandwagon. For many Italians, it’s a way of life.
At Caffeina, we care deeply about the quality and provenance of the food and coffee we sell. It’s important to us that ingredients are organic, eco-sustainable and Fair Trade certified. As a result, we work with small farmers and suppliers who can demonstrate high-quality standards and a commitment to traditional methods of Italian cooking.
We also believe in respecting the environment in the way we serve your food and drink to you. That’s why, wherever possible, we use recycled or reusable materials instead of the disposable ones that are so common in other cafés, bars and restaurants. Our free, filtered water can be consumed in reusable cups. And if you’re prepared to help us save waste on plastic bottles, then we’re happy to give you a 10p discount on every coffee you purchase.
Andrea Dolciotti, our exceptional international chef, is committed to bringing you a menu that is both elegant and full of flavour. While he has a passion for traditional Italian cuisine, he also understands the demands of urban life and the need for quick service.
Treat Caffeina as a place in which you can gather with your friends, work colleagues or family. You’re able to share freshly-made sandwiches, enjoy a salad and drink a healthy juice. And, of course, you can round off your visit with a spectacular Italian coffee, prepared by one of our resident experts.
