This Café is the best kept secret in London, it is an insider tip and a gem. If you are in the mood for coffee and you do not want to hang out at Starbucks or Nero again, I would suggest you pay Benugo at the V&A a visit. Enter the museum, walk through the Museum Shop and pass the courtyard. You don’t only get coffee and a muffin – the interior is amazing and furthermore you are in the middle of the best fashion and design museum in town. Open your eyes, get inspired and visit an exhibition or just wander around. Savage Beauty by Alexander McQueen is still on, just for your info. Also great about the Benugo is that you can sit outside when it is warm and sunny like today. They have a big courtyard with a little pond in the middle. It is lovely to sit here, enjoy a coffee or two and something sweet like a muffin. Did I convince you to come here yet? No? The pictures definitely will. Pay attention to the lighting and the stucco elements.
