HAGGERSTON ESPRESSO ROOM (HER)
Haggerston Espresso Room, or HER, is a coffee shop located a mere minute’s walk away from Haggerston Railway Station. It has a very local feel to it, almost feeling like you’re in someone’s living room.
I opted for a double macchiato (Climpson & Sons blend), which was really excellent. The very friendly barista who served me used to work at their shop over on Broadway Market and certainly knew how to make a great cup of coffee! I was very tempted by the mince pies (made locally) but I was eventually swayed by the Green & Blacks dark chocolate – dark chocolate & coffee is a combo that never fails to please.
Haggerston Espresso Room boasts free wifi and large, comfy sofas so if you want to camp out for a few hours, accompanied by great coffee and tasty food, this place is definitely for you.
