Is this the best coffee in London? It’s definitely a contender!
I must add that they also serve a great range of freshly baked cakes and pastries, plus delectable sandwiches (some toasted). Tea and coffee is served in cute china cups and there is even an old fashioned mangle table that they put the cakes on – I particularly like this. Water bottles are old milk bottles with vintage prints and there is a display of ready bagged Monmouth coffee to purchase for take away.
This time I had a Flat White, which is literally to die for – smooth and creamy. I also purchased the French Toast with Ham and Cheese. It arrived at the table toasted with a drizzle of honey. Great touch.
My friend got a Cappuccino which came in a tall ceramic ‘plastic cup’. I first saw these a few years ago and instantly fell in love with them. I like the mismatched crockery, it adds an element of surprise.
Upstairs is a cute and intimate seating area with comfy cushions but downstairs is a bit more rough and ready – beaten leather sofas and a Pommel Horse as a table. They have free WI-FI so it’s a great spot to do a bit of work/blogging while you’re enjoying the food and drink on offer. Last time I went downstairs, I was welcomed by a sea of men tapping away on their Macs. They even have an alcohol licence so it’s a great place to enjoy a post work tipple too.
It was closing time when we were leaving and the barista came over to the table with a muffin wrapped in cellophane and told us that they are a bit of a tester and to let us know what we think. They call it their superfood muffin and is made with Beetroot, nuts and seeds. What did I think? Delicious – not too sweet and the beetroot gives it a lovely and moist texture.
I’m always content when I walk out of the large wooden door onto Berwick Street, then winding down the back streets of Soho to the tube, or wherever the night takes me.
