Stop One: Black Coffee at Crepeaffaire in the London Hippodrome!

Step into a world of entertainment and rich history as you indulge in the perfect cup of black coffee at Crepeaffaire.

Interestingly, it's said that the real-life J. Robert Oppenheimer had quite a diet – a concoction of double martinis and cigarettes.

The Hippodrome, designed by the legendary architect Frank Matcham, has captivated audiences since 1900 with over a century of spectacular shows, including never-seen-before circus acts and Wild West adventures featuring elephants, lions, and bears.

But that's not all! On its grand opening night, the one and only Charlie Chaplin himself took the stage by storm!

Fast forward to today, and while the circus may have moved on, The Hippodrome remains a world-class destination. This historic venue is now home to top-notch restaurants, bars, casinos, and, of course, the perfect cup of black coffee.

Kickstart your day adventure with your caffeine fix at Crepeaffaire in The Hippodrome. And if you're tempted by their mouthwatering crepes, go ahead and treat yourself – we don't blame you!
