As I walked in there was a really enticing atmosphere, lots of different styles of seats and tables which is great to see, also I liked seeing people encouraged to sit next to others for example a table for 6 would have 3 or 4 people sitting alone, I think this is great to encourage conversation which is what a coffee shop should do. We sat at some armchairs which was very nice and I went to order 2 flat whites and 2 different cakes. Great staff, nice layout, little cramped but that’s just a popular London Coffee shop for u. Also they have loyalty cards which I think you need to buy 6 drinks to get 1 free which is pretty good compared to others I have had (required 10 or more drinks bought for a free one) The coffee came on the nice board with both coffees and cakes. I think it’s these little touches that are completely unnecessary as I am really not fussy about that sort of stuff but it made the experience much nicer as we felt the care for the products was there. I was actually very impressed they brought it to us! The coffee was lovely, I’m writing this review a few days after so to be honest I can’t remember the specifics about what notes where in there but it definitely had a lot of dynamics with some woody flavours accompanied by a hint of fruit. The milk was silky and creamy, just the way it should be. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and sat to read the caffeine magazines they had available. Also a wide variety of cakes which where delicious. In conclusion I will definitely be coming here again and I love the location as it is closer to Leicester Square station that CG so you really can avoid the horrible crowds pouring into Nike, sunglasses hut and the Covent Garden market. Also it is right next to a restaurant I live called rossopomodoro, great Italian with excellent (and cheap food) #plug 😂😂
This is one of my local stops in the morning. I do find it very difficult to get a place to sit as the cafe's popularity grows. The coffee is good and they often have a special latte each season which keeps things interesting. The cakes are also good and can be suited to dietary requirements.
