Workshop Coffee apparently has some of the best coffee in London (I don’t actually drink the stuff – I could try and make myself like it, but can probably do without a caffeine addiction). They roast their beans in their Clerkenwell branch (they also have a smaller coffee bar in Marylebone), which you can also buy to take home.
The bigger Clerkenwell outpost has a pretty good brunch menu too, with lots of choice and nicely generous platefuls. I went for the corn fritters (£11.50) with halloumi, poached eggs and kasundi (a spiced tomato relishy ketchup) and J had the baked eggs (£9.50) with roast pepper, chorizo and feta, which came piping in their little pan.
One of my new favourite brunch spots, and definitely a place for coffee lovers to buy their next bag of beans.
