Who said popping out for a coffee and a cake had to be boring? Not on our watch. Here are the most quirky 10 café stops London has to offer.

1. Pedal Back Café

Simple spot in Tooting market. Not just for cyclists, but you might see a lot in there sipping coffee and re-fuelling on Guinness and chocolate cake while their bikes are being repaired.

5. Cereal Killer Café

Gimmicky, but hugely successful. Based on Brick Lane, this place has more cereal than you can shake a pint of milk at. Great for parties.

6. Cabman’s Shelters

These bright green Grade II listed shelters dotted around London were originally built for the drivers of hansom cabs and Hackney carriages. The cheapest coffee and bacon sarnie in London.

9. Look Mum No Hands!

Another cycle café in Farringdon. Coffee and cake while you get your bike fixed, or you can simply enjoy the surroundings watching people in lycra.

10. Yurt Café

Right next to Limehouse DLR you can have coffee, cake and homemade dishes in, you guessed it, a yurt (round tent thing covered in felt).
