Workshop Coffee: A new coffeebar opens in Fitzrovia

Quite unintentionally, I seem to have found myself on a quest to find the best coffee in the Soho vicinity.  My office is near Soho, and I point blank refuse to settle for a cup of Costa or Starbucks, instead searching for “proper coffee” from somewhere suitably independent and (usually) beautifully furnished.

I was well aware of Workshop Coffee, having had breakfast and dinner at the Clerkenwell café.  So imagine my excitement when a new Workshop coffeebar popped up just a stone’s throw from my office.  It opened Monday; I was a sworn regular by Tuesday.  Let me tell you more…

Workshop Clerkenwell is a restaurant and café.  It’s rustic and super trendy, as befits it’s sought-after EC1 location.  The coffee can bust any hangover, the apple bircher muesli (£5.50) sorts me right out on a weekend morning, and the rare-breed hamburger (£13.50) is a seriously satisfying dinner option.

There are a couple of other Workshop Coffeebars, in Holborn and Marylebone – but the new Fitzrovia location is (1) right next-door to one of my fave workout spots, Psycle, (2) 5 minutes from Oxford Circus – and my office, and (3) has a small-but-perfectly-formed seating area that I’m just itching to hold one-to-ones and informal meetings in.

The interior is an absolute beauty, with low marble and gold tables, vintage mirrors, Venetian-style ceramic tiles and colourful coffee cups.  The coffee is Workshop’s home-roasted variety that creates smooth, no-need-for-sugar beverages (£3.20 for a soya latte).

The staff, dressed in smart denim aprons and with huge smiles, are wonderful and super friendly.  I drank my coffee standing up at the barista bar with them, chatting away – and also to Chloe AKA Faerietalefoodie blogger, who was also stopping by to check out this new coffee destination.

Oh and they even serve the aforementioned bircher muesli for breakfast at the Fitzrovia location too.  Just try keeping me away.
