With International Coffee Day just around the corner, there’s never been a better time to embrace your inner caffeine fiend.
2. The Good Life Eatery
The Good Life Eatery opened on Motcomb Street earlier this year, and has been turning heads ever since. As well as having the opportunity to sample the eatery’s coffee outside the shop, customers will also be able to purchase a regular-size coffee and slice of cake for £6 throughout the week. Vegan and gluten-free options are also available.
3. Fine Cheese Co.
Cheese and coffee might seem like an unusual combination, but the Fine Cheese Co. certainly doesn’t think so. The Motcomb Street cheese seller’s casual dining concept, À Table, offers the best from the shop, including its signature cheese soufflé, as well as rich Italian coffee.
In celebration of International Coffee Day, the retailer is offering customers the chance to win a latte tutorial with its baristas, along with a kilo of Le Piantagioni del Caffè coffee beans, roasted in Livorno, Italy. The 85/15 blend, so-called because it is 85% Arabica and 15% Robusta, is the perfect smooth-yet-powerful base for any great cappuccino. Click here for details of how to enter.
Next time you’re in the neighbourhood, stop by this family-run café on West Halkin Street for the signature honey cake. The six layers of honey-dipped cake, filled with sweetened sour cream, are the perfect accompaniment to a rich cup of coffee.
If breakfast’s more your thing, don’t miss the opportunity to bag a free pastry with your morning brew. On 1 October, to mark International Coffee Day, the café is offering a complementary croissant with any coffee, along with a chance to win a £100 voucher for the best Instagram post during the campaign. Make sure to tag @letocafe.co.uk.
The team at Yotam Ottolenghi’s Motocomb Street deli is devoted to making people happy through good food. It may be a small shop with a take-away feel, but the mouth-watering daily-changing menu makes up for what it lacks in space. Challenge your taste buds with a new flavour combination, along with a flat white or macchiato to go.
6. Food Fliosophy
This tranquil Greek café-cum-deli on Kinnerton Street has a reputation for its piping-hot coffee. It also serves a selection of traditional Greek dishes, along with brunch, sandwiches, salads, juices and desserts. With plenty of freshly prepared healthy options, it’s a popular choice. Why not pay the coffee hotspot a visit on your next lunch break?
