We use this Costa regularly when in the area. Staff are efficient and helpful. Food/drink up to the usual Costa standard. Toilets always spotless. Would recommend.

Stopped here on the way to our hotel from Kings Cross. Had coffee and cake and it was just fine. The staff were very nice and the place had a nice atmosphere.

Reasonable prices, good quality food and drinks, cozy place, right next to a hostel! I was in this hostel and it was so useful to have this Costa right next to us.

Enjoyed a really nice breakfast here with family in a cosy Christmassy atmosphere. Do recommend the ginger latte for the festive season!

Starbucks sucks compared to this. I had the chai latte and it was so good that I will be returning every morning for the rest of my trip. The shop is incredibly cute and the barista was very kind. Not too expensive either!

It is of the same quality as all the other take away coffee-shops; nice and friendly staff and decent coffee.

The person who served us on Sunday 8 Oct at around 10am was really off hand and clearly irritated by my wife who had rarely visited costa, let alone this one. He maybe had a problem with women, who knows? She had trouble working out...More

One of the better costas. Small, but I think this adds to the feel. Decent coffee and snacks.Service is good. A few outdoor seats. Enjoyable visit.

We had breakfast here nine times and it was always good. Coffee is first rate and there were tasty breakfast foods. We could take our time in comfortable seats. The French "barista maestro" is excellent.

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
