Noel Gallagher and Modfather Chilling in West London
Starbucks may be the most ubiquitous coffee chain on the high street.
But for these two icons of popular music, a greasy spoon is more than adequate for catching up on each others news.
Oasis star Noel Gallagher, 43, enjoyed a brew with Paul Weller aka The Modfather, 52, at a cafe in West London.
Chilling: Two of the music world's most famous artists, enjoyed a quiet cuppa at a greasy spoon in West London today
Looking like an ordinary pair of middle-aged men, albeit with a penchant for youthful clothes, the pair were seen deep in conversation outside the neighbourhood cafe.
No fancy lattes or double macchiatos for these two, just a couple of cuppas, as they enjoyed a friendly chat.
The millionaire musicians sat outside at the pavement side tables in front of the cafe's windows which were plastered with signs advertising the cafe staple 'All Day Breakfast' at the bargain price of just £4.95.
Weller, amazingly, has managed to stay friends with both Gallagher brothers, despite Noel and Liam's well-publicised fall-out last year which resulted in him leaving the band.

Music icons: Noel and Weller have known each other for 12 years... and the Modfather is also friendly with Noel's estranged brother Liam
Weller has enjoyed a 12-year friendship with the father of two. He is also expecting a third child, his second with wife Sara McDonald.
And he has recently signed on to design clothing for Liam's fashion label Pretty Green.
Noel has said of the former Jam frontman: 'I guess Weller’s my oldest friend... I’ve known him for about 12 years”, said the guitarist.
'There’s an unwritten law that I never go out with Paul Weller, he’s a nightmare.
'He’s hardcore – if you go out with him, if you come home at all, there’s bumps and bruises. There’s been scuffles in the street and you’ve probably fallen out with him.'
Last year Noel quit Oasis after a fight with his brother and lead vocalist of Oasis, Liam Gallagher.
He posted a statement on the band's website that read: 'It's with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight.
'People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer.'
The remaining members of Oasis have formed a band together called Beady Eye.
