Harden's survey result
“Better roasted, better brewed, better poured – just better” agree fans of the coffee at this small chain with its own roastery. They also sell simple snacks, coffee-making equipment and their own beans – “so take some home!”.
Fans hail “by far the best coffee in town” at this small chain with its own roastery – “don’t let the lack of comfort put you off!”. Along with a “range of different brews to try”, they also serve snacks and pastries, while the Clerkenwell original goes a step further, with a full brunch and lunch menu.
‘Source, Roast, Brew’ is the motto of this “casual” chain, nominated by its many fans for its brilliant, in-house-roasted brews (it opened a new Bethnal Green roastery this year). The five-year-old Clerkenwell original has the only significant food operation, and is particularly tipped for “great breakfast options”.
It’s the brilliant blend of coffees (“roasted before your very eyes”) which wins nominations for these “friendly and entertaining” independents (“the Cheers of coffee shops!”); brunch is a highlight too though – “a wide variety of delicious sweets and savouries”.
