Coffee & Tea

Coffee window on Bermondsey Street, Bermondsey, London

Sorry forgot name. This place is a leftover from a pop-up, but looks like they might go permanent. It's a little window at the top of Bermondsey street, a few doors north of the The Hide that sells coffee, pastries in the morning, as well as sandwiches and pasta at lunch.

Espresso-based drinks are great; fruity caramel notes to their coffee, works best with milked based drinks that cut the excess acidity (based on a comparison of the macchiato vs a cappuccino). Good stuff and probably some of the best coffee in the area.

Toast and jam is rustic and generous, had a soft dense spongy bread with just the right contrast of strawberry jam and butter to evoke berries and cream. Almond croissants are good and solid, with a fair amount of crispy flakiness, just not as great as the ones I had at the Nightingale a couple years ago. Good porridge that is on the watery side, made with coconut milk and sweetened with treacly brown sugar.

A penne pasta with broccoli was decent, but nothing special. Yet to try the sandwiches, might be good, given the quality of bread in the toast.
