Does anyone know of any late night cafes/coffee bars in the area - it seems to be a very large hole in the market - meeting a friend of mine the other night, who does not drink, and being off the booze briefly myself, I racked my brains for somewhere local, and came up with a blank. Fearing the icy glare of trendy yoofs IF we ventured into a gastro, and the bemused stare of the bar staff at the less salubrious drinking holes when asked for a skinny decaff latte, we were stumped!

Doesn't the Tas Café on Borough High Street close quite late?

only to about 7 on some nights :(

There's a terrific coffee bar in Soho that has coffee and hot chocolate until late - and even puts smiley faces on the top of the frothy milk in chocolate... we could do with one of those around here :)

What about the Bermondsey Kitchen? Not too pub like so should be comfortable to sit & sip a coffee

A bit of a walk perhaps, but the South Bank is full of suitable venues: the NFT Cafe (till 9.00), National Theatre (till 11) and Festival Hall (till 10). Nearer than Soho anyway...

Smithfields? A minor schlep but always open.

Amano on Clink Street do fabulous coffees and they are open until around 9.30pm I think.

thanks folks! Amano sounds particularly promising, will give that a go.
