Best Cappucino in London? Price not an issue. (can't believe I just typed that)

I asked this once before and got Starbucks as the best answer. I can drink Starbucks in the states, I am looking for some other options. Any good suggestions?? THANKS SO MUCH!

Starbucks is crap.

I like Aroma mocha (cappuccino with cocoa), but it's also a chain.

for the best? dunno. I really am more of a tea person...

smooth.

Myself, and most people I know, prefer Costa for their cappucinos. They are all over the place, especially in stations. See this site for locations: www.costa.co.uk

Caffe Nero is another chain that has a good reputation. I believe they have either taken or are taking over Aroma.

I think most people would put these two chains above Starbucks. And, contrary to popular belief, Costa is the UK's leading coffee chain, not Starbucks.

Patisserie Valerie in Covent Garden used to make delicious espresso and cappacinos to have with my chocolate cake while relaxing and people watching.

Agree with Costa and Nero. The other I liked was Ponte (I think).

Starbucks is revolting anywhere.
