If you’re looking for new cafés to try out this month in London, there’s plenty of choice.
From matcha cakes and Swedish fika to a hip cafe devoted to the egg, here’s our pick of five new cafes to visit in the capital in March.

This new Fitzrovia neighbourhood cafe and store from the people behind Percy & Founders offers all-day food and drinks, from morning coffee and breakfast to lunch and afternoon snacks – including St Johns doughnuts. As well as food they offer their own specialist blended coffee roasted by family-run Reads Coffee Roasters in Dorset, plus a selection of handpicked teas and infusions, cold-pressed juices and beer from English craft breweries.

You can meet your matcha (not even sorry) in this new Covent Garden cafe which combines European patisserie techniques with flavours from the Far East. Expect Japanese style savoury stuffed buns in this cafe and shop across two floors, as well as green tea themed tarts, macarons, cheesecakes and madeleines based around the star ingredient – matcha.

Inspired by the hybrid cafe and retail concepts commonly found in Scandinavia, Blåbär in Putney showcases unique homeware and accessories from up-and-coming designers, vintage furniture and own branded products. The Nordic cafe also serves coffee and teas from the Swedish Johan & Nyström, open sandwiches on rye or sourdough and cinnamon buns. Perfect for indulging in fika – the Swedish tradition of meeting up for cake, coffee and chat.

The Soho House Group originally launched this hip pop-up cafe devoted to the egg last year, and it has just re-opened this month with a new menu. Expect hot dog fried rice with kimchi and egg, a sausage and egg muffin with rare breed pork patty, fluffy buttermilk pancakes, and corn cakes with poached eggs and sriracha hollandaise.

Occupying the former site of The Newman Street Tavern in the heart of Fitzrovia, this all-day dining room with an art-deco interior and canary-yellow booths serves contemporary dishes inspired by the flavours and ingredients of the Pacific. Open from breakfast, with plates that nod to clean Californian and Australian cooking alongside coffee by The Gentleman Baristas and teas from The Fine Tea Company, through to elegant lunch and dinner dishes.
