Besides being one of London’s best coffee shops, Ozone Coffee Roasters near Old Street roundabout in Shoreditch has a mind-boggling 11 menu sections. That makes it one of the most useful spots we know. Their newer Emma Street spot tops that by adding pizza to the mix, alongside brunch, evening meals, lunchtime soups, salads and pastas, plus an all-day breakfast menu that features an eggs benedict on crunchy bubble ‘n’ squeak cakes which is, hands down, one of the best breakfasts you can get in London. Whereas their Shoreditch spot is all tastefully aged wood, this place feels light and bright and fresh. It’s the kind of place the actor playing you will hang out in if you ever get around to making that sit-com about your picture perfect London life.
