London calling: In search for a great coffee
I live one hundred metres from one of the best cafes in Melbourne. This is great when I am at home, but when I’m not, it’s hard. I am not a coffee addict: even worse, I am a fully-fledged coffee snob. I prefer to go without than have a bad or even so-so one.
There are thousands of coffee shops in London and while there are many things I love about this incredible city the coffee on offer is pretty dismal. So, I was delighted to discover that one of my favourite cafes in Melbourne, St Ali, is now operating in London. Named the Workshop, Clerkenwell they take their coffee seriously and roast their own on premises.
I went there for breakfast. It was totally out of my way and totally worth it.
