WORKSHOP WIGMORE STREET
Workshop Wigmore Street is the second coffee shop opened by the Workshop coffee roasters – the first one (a roastery-come-cafe) is situated on Clerkenwell Road. Both serve excellent coffee but the design of each is slightly different. Workshop Wigmore Street is a lot smaller and appears to focus more on coffee to go.
There is seating available, there’s just not that much.
I sat down for an hour or so with my espresso and panini and the place was buzzing. A whole variety of people came in and as I was sat by the shop window, it was a great spot for people watching. While the coffee is a bit dearer than other places in the area, the quality and taste make up for it.
The staff are very friendly and they sell a whole variety of beans to take away with you. If you make coffee at home and work/live in the area, it’s a great place to pick up different coffee blends. I bought a bag from the Clerkenwell branch a couple of months back and it was exquisite.
All in all, up there with the best in this part of central London.
