Timberyard is a fantastic coffee shop, a mere 5 minute walk away from Old Street station. Their motto is ‘Tea, coffee, work and play. Re-imagined.’ This might sound a bit gimmicky but I can absolutely see where they’re going with it. The shop is designed in such a way that it enables you to relax and/or work accompanied by fantastic tea/coffee and food.
Downstairs they have the ‘meeting space’ which has a selection of comfy sofas and chairs accompanied by a large table (see last picture below), which is slightly removed from the main seating area and is perfect for meetings/study sessions. It gives you an element of privacy and also acts as an innovative space, in stark contrast to your average office.
Timberyard serves Has Bean Coffee and currently have the ‘Jabberwocky’ as their house blend which is sweet with a distinct taste of apple. It’s not just coffee on the menu. They also have a range of lovely looking tea, which a lot of customers seemed to be enjoying.
Timberyard was very involved in the London Coffee Festival and hosted a private cupping session, celebrating the one year anniversary of DunneFrankowski, enjoyed by industry people and coffee lovers alike.
This place is perfect for working outside of the office or library or simply meeting with a friend to have a chinwag over a cup of coffee or tea.
