A stone’s throw from Attendant (the coffee bar in an ex-Victorian toilet), Kin’s awning and outdoor seating catches the eye – and once they’ve got you close enough, they wow you with their cake offering, spread along the bar. And after that you’re sold!
1. Aside from soy milk, they offer almond milk – my absolute fave, and something you never find outside of New York! I was excited 🙂
Your caffeine fix will be served by a team hailing from big name coffee houses such as Espresso Room, Taylor Street Baristas, Rapha and Look Mum No Hands, using beans from frequently-changing roasters, such as Notes and Round Hill.
2. The cake! Oh my gosh, Kin have got cake down pat. The mandarin & dark chocolate loaf? The most moist and more-ish slice I’ve ever experienced. And the rocky road (the obvious breakfast choice – duh)? So rich and decadent. They even stock Glazed & Confused doughnuts. Wowzer.
Those in search of savoury will love the superfood salads and quiches too – the polenta, brie & beetroot bake got a massive thumbs up from Maxine and I, and Kin ensure that there’s always a vegan option on offer.
The breakfast jars, brownies and pastries look amazing too.
3. The interior – so bright and breezy, Kin really is a haven from the hustle of central London, with a living wall, striking angular lights, Subway-tiled bar and clean-lined Scandi-style furniture – or there’s the option to sit outside in the sun. Right up my street.
