Independent Cafés/Coffee Houses

In light (more like celebration) of the news that Starbucks is closing the vast majority of it’s outlets in Australia, I’m going to compile a list of independent coffee shops in London that could be used as recommendations. Aussie/Kiwi run coffee shops will be highly prized - I have only found a few places where I can order a flat white and not be looked at like I was speaking a foreign language.

Here's the list so far, if it starts getting too long, I'll try and create a seperate page for it:
