Due to a city that enjoys it’s morning cup of tea and mid-day cakes, London is not short of wonderful cafes that delicately brews the highest quality coffee with care and ease. It’s a methodology, really. I often find myself in East London’s Shoreditch for a cup of coffee and a work space and sometimes a cheeky sweet bite. My days in East London and all the energy surrounding it reminds me of Brooklyn. It’s rough around the edges, but built for the person that perseveres and has the drive to build the most. Then when I visit Central London establishments where the tourists mostly own the pavements, I find myself in places where coffee dates are more for the gilded touches. Something that London cafes do well is allowing customers to enjoy the experience of just simply ordering your routine flat white.
Each and every cafe has it’s unique touch on custumer experience. Just when I thought I’ve seen it all, I found myself in Attendant in Fitzrovia. Once a Victorian public restroom in 1890 for the masses turned cleverly into a cafe that caters to its regular, but many cafe-visiting fanatics too! After a two-year construction project, the cafe now is one of the city’s favorites for a quick bite, caffeine-fix and indulgent afternoon. With original porcelain urinals and green speckled flooring, makes this the perfect escape from a rainstorm, a place to start a Monday morning, or to entertain your curiosity. Attendant is definitely a place you should be visiting if you want an obscure and unique experience that will leave you happy and content. Hope you find this place as interesting and special as I did!
