Renowned for sourcing, roasting and brewing great coffee, this independent coffee bar keeps the drinks range small, the pastries fresh and the staff super-friendly. With seating for just fourteen or so guests, most customers make like “busy cosmopolitans” and stand at the bar to drink their espresso on the go.
Workshop easily serves the best coffee in central London. If you’re and Aussie or Kiwi this is where you want to go.
Pretentious and overpriced. We paid an absolute fortune for two very small coffees which were cold and very average. When we asked the woman barista to warm them up, she became obnoxious and rather arrogants; and with much obvious passive-aggressiveness, she argued there was nothing wrong with the coffee temperature and that we didn't know anything about coffee. Judging by my age compared to hers, it would be fair to assume that I was drinking coffee all over the world before she was even born. I know what a good coffee tastes like. A little humility and good service go a long way. My cappuccino was flat and despite her best effort at recreating an elaborate decoration, it wasn't a good coffee. She seems to have a seriously overrated opinion of her Barista abilities. It's a shame and no need to say, we will never come back. The decor is meant to be understated but it looks cheap and unfinished. There isn't any atmosphere. The tables are small, low and unpractical. The pastry was dry and didn't taste of anything I recognise. Very disappointing overall and I didn't care much for the attitude of the woman preparing the coffee. The male employee was pleasant and polite though and the counter was clean. There is a Prêt à Manger across the little place, so don't bother with this place. It's not worth it.
Perfectly roasted espresso, well-pulled. Open, spare atmosphere.
Fantastic coffee and best pain au chocolat I’ve ever had. 10/10 would recommend. The location in St. Christopher’s Place is also worth a visit!
There are 3 main reasons to come here: 1) the coffee, 2) the coffee, 3) the coffee. This is about as good as coffee gets in London. The croissants and brownies (from Little Bread Pedlar) are also excellent. And the staff are lovely - clearly talented barristas.
There isn't a huge amount of food choice nor that much space to sit down - but that's not why you come here. You come here for the coffee.
