London _ Covent Garden _ Café

The Black Penny

£5 - £20

CityHood's Review

An old-school coffee house, the Black Penny is the new kid on the block for great lunch breaks. Located on Great Queen Street, this small café is perfect for any occasion with industrial decoration, delicious food and arguably some of the best coffee in London.

Food & Drink
The food is so good here you’ll be planning your second visit before you’ve finished your meal. From the famous confit of duck to the chicken wings mix with a variety of creative and unique salads, everything is fresh, organic and all ingredients are delivered to the café daily. The coffee is roasted by expert innovators Alchemy.

We Love
The respect paid to the conventions of coffee and traditional coffee houses, and the downstairs Seminar Pit, that hosts a talks from a variety of creatives, lecturers and entertainers.

Breakfast from £4.50, Coffee from £2.80

For a quieter lunch away from the activity of the machines, use the room at the back of the café
