Excellent creamy foamy top on the flat white, the underlying coffee rather complex and expressive, with various nutty fruitty notes, an interesting contrast to the structured smooth qualities of the ones at Flat White. (Not saying that one is better than the other, merely that they're different.)

A good omelette, moist beneath the surface browning and wet on the inside (which is the way I like mine), with spinach, ham and cheese. Perhaps a tiny gloss of butter, certainly nothing like the buttery rendition at The Garrison on Bermondsey Street (which I also like but rather different). Big flavours in the tomato chutney - spicy (cumin, coriander?), fruity and sweet, very satisfying with the omelette. Nice rustic pieces of toasted bread. A side salad of sharp bitter nutty greens.

Pretty good friand, massively dotted with poppy seeds for many delightful miniature pops in a background of sweet lemon.
