Store St Espresso is not only a specialty coffee shop, but an independent local institution in Bloomsbury that serves what many deem one of the best coffees in London. Although they have two different locations just a few streets apart in central London, their Tavistock Place shop (also known as Continental Stores) is the only one which offers a breakfast and brunch menu.
What they lack in quantity of menu options, they more than make up for in quality. Ingredients are sourced from recognised suppliers and prepared with precision and care. Must-try dishes include the thick banana pancakes as well as the garlic roasted mushrooms with avocado.
Generous portions and friendly staff aren’t the only reasons to visit. Store St Espresso also offer free WiFi for those looking for a coffee and bite to eat behind their laptop. Additionally, laid-back, quiet atmosphere makes it an ideal location for relaxed brunches and productive days alike.
The space is well-lit by large street-facing windows and a skylight at the rear end of the café, creating an inviting space for visitors. During the odd months of London sunshine, Store St Espresso offers additional outside seating options as well.
