I’ve been here over the years and seen improvements. It’s family friendly, close to the local playpark, so often has parents and buggies squeezed between the sofas. Laid-back atmosphere contrasts with the City of London and Barbican just a hundred metres south, and the bustling Whitecross market just outside.
It is good for a lazy Sunday – even if it is Wednesday afternoon. The coffee is fine – good, strong taste. Perhaps a little too treacly, but not unpleasant. You could easily pass an hour or two.
