Curators Coffee Gallery is a stone’s throw from Oxford Circus, and is an interior designer’s dream in which to get your caffeine fix.
Yes, Curators serves up great coffee (Exhibition espresso, from Brazilian and El Salvadorian produce, and roasted by the Nude Espresso team) – including cold brew and iced cascara, and a penchant for the Chemex brewing method (which I also love, mainly from a photogenic point of view!).
Team your caffeine with a sweet treat (from Yeast Bakery and Bittersweet Bakers), or go savoury with one of the many lunch-friendly options.
If you’re giving your sweet tooth a rest, the salad plates are hearty, or the toasted sandwiches (made with fresh bread from Sally Clarke’s Bakery) are mouthwateringly good.
So much epicurean goodness, and still I haven’t got to the main point of this post yet!
In my eyes, the most wonderful thing about Curators Coffee Gallery is the to-die-for interior. Sleek and simple, it is oh-so effective. A dark wooden bar is set against clean lines and white expanses. The walls are covered in honeycomb tiles in fifty shades of grey, interspersed with potted greenery in laboratory-style vessels and Jieldé Zigzag wall lamps.
On the ground floor, light floods in through the glass front wall to make the space airy and bright. In the basement seating area, blond wooden furniture keeps the space simple and calm.
Effortless style, and such a fresh vibe – I love Curators Coffee Gallery for its point of difference in a neighbourhood of grungy hipster cafes!
