    Hugh Jackman’s cafe in NYC, Laughing Man is a pretty good place too! All the income goes to a charity. I should check out some of these places. 🙂

    You need to come to Brisbane, Australia. I just wrote an article for uni and I had the hardest time choosing my top 15 here! We have so many great café’s.

    The Monmouth Coffee in London is definitely worth a visit! It is in top of my 6 best independent coffee places (I try to avoid coffeehouse chains). Ivano-Frankivsk on air! is in my home city (in Ukraine) and coffee there tastes simply great.

    These places all seem awesome, would love to try Caffe Ladro.

    The best coffee I’ve ever had is in Italy. After leaving the country I kind of regret I ever had a coffee there, because nothing has even come close since!

    I absolutely love Tapped and Packed, but the coffee at Espresso Room on Great Ormond Street in London is the absolute bollocks! The space is tiny, always a queue but well worth the wait. Flat whites are amazing and the capps are to die for! The baristas are super friendly and sooo cute and the owner, Ben, takes his coffee very seriously. You can’t go to London and not try the coffee here.

    Also worth checking out Prufrock’s on Leather Lane. Coffees are amazing, real attention to detail. Loads of seating, a real buzzy atmosphere, especially when the market is in full swing – around the lunch hour.

    Nice, I hit at least two of these. Bummer that I missed Little Amps in Harrisburg while I was there earlier this year.

    I didn’t know Hugh Jackman has a coffee shop in NYC. I’ll stop by next time I’m in town. Thanks for the tip!

    I live in Barcelona, but when I saw this I HAD to check and make sure Portland, my hometown, was on the list. Check. I haven’t actually tried Coava though.

    Hello Martha,
    I have to say that this i a good collection of cafes (or coffee shops). I don’t like going to Starbucks but the that is in “Princess Street” in Edinburgh (in front of the castle is unique.

    Thailand has some of the most amazing independent coffee shops and most have sprung up in the last 10 years.

    I moved to Bangkok in 2003 and couldn’t find a decent cup of coffee for love nor money when I first got here (and I refuse to drink Starbucks!).

    Nowadays, there are eight amazing indie coffee shops within 3 blocks of my apartment and a few hundred more (literally) within a few miles.

    If you haven’t done the indie coffee shop trail in Bangkok, you’re missing a treat 🙂

    Nice blog, btw.

    Hey Martha,

    What an amazing list. I am a self-confessed coffee geek (so much so that I roast coffee at home :)). Fortunately, we live in London, which is full of amazing Independent cafes. Tap and Monmouth (which are on your list) are some that I frequent. Some others are Nude Espresso, Prufrock, Workshop, and Ozone (there are plenty more).

    I have tried Blue Bottle and loved their drip coffee. Loved Cafe Lomi in Paris.

    Next time you are in London, you should let me know – we shall go on a coffee tasting walk 🙂

    Thanks for giving a list of fifteen best coffee cafes in different cities in the world. Rich people like to drink coffee instead of normal tea. But I think herbal tea is better than coffee. Coffee is hotter than tea by nature. There are various types of flavour of coffee. People love to go to coffee cafes to drink there favourite flavour coffee.Thanks for sharing.
