    Sit here with a coffee or grab a beer from the Coca Cola Smeg fridge (or a shot of Ouzo). There’s a TV in the corner, old jazz music playing and a lack of light from the outdoor world... Read more

    Campest coffee shop in the world. Coffee isn't great, but the spinach pastry thingies are. Okay selection of beers too. Bring cash!

    Great discovery! The fabulously eclectic upstairs sitting room is enough to come here for. Friendly staff and great coffee is an added bonus!

    Awesome place but they don't take cards so pop down the road to the free cash point on the other side of the street.

    This place is made of awesome. I was here 9 at night and the place was buzzing, the team really friendly and the coffee fine. Just go for the décor and ambience.

    When I moved to London I thought there'd be loads of places like this- there really aren't! Great coffee, good booze and open till late.

    Bespoke cocktails. Tell the mixologist your favourite liquor and you'll end up with something delicious.

    Eccentric pub / cafe / hideaway. Comfy seating upstairs if you're looking for somewhere to chill. Modest selection of snacks.

    Dickensian-style coffee house under the bridge on Shoreditch High Street - full of quirky objects and they play great music!

    I discovered this place one hot Saturday afternoon. It was empty. Can't wait to come back in the evening. Yeah, upstairs is incredible, and yeah, our coffees and cakes were very expensive.

    Quirky, kitsch and... expensive! £7.50 for a no frills twinning tea and a hot chocolate. The toilet smelt anything but clean and there's nothing to dry your hands there. Quite disappointing.

    Extremely overpriced, only with "human" menu. £5 hot chocolate, £6 bottle Red Stripe, £7 bottle Bulmer. Outrageous!

    Upstairs is the best. Not the best coffee, Internet a bit patchy but nice venue for informal meetings and catching up on some reading

    Espresso Martinis are the best. Pricey though

    To be honest, we have no idea how good the food and drink are. We were too busy imbibing the roccoco details of the upstairs room, and pretending we actually know what roccoco means.

    Quirky and so cool - great date place. Loads of personality interior. Negatives: rude staff, cash only, payment upfront, outrageous prices. Smash hit let down.

    Very random opening hours, sometimes open at 3am. Has a crazy vintage saloon upstairs which is very brideshead revisited! Love it!

    These guys love classic boxing, real old school stuff. Get them talking and enjoy.

    Good place for a relaxed drink. They only take cash though which is dodgy. Tax avoidance, I say...

    The decoration is eclectic and quite cool but the service is horrendously bad. They were really rude and they make us leave the upper floor just because one of the 5 of us was not drinking anything.

    Overpriced, £3.20 a standard coffee, not accepting card payments. The interior is nice but the service not. We were interrupted in the middle of eating with a "that will be £25,50" which was awkward

    The upstairs room is fantastic... Food and drink is a little on the pricey side. It's worth the decor though!

    Is a nice place, specially the upstairs space. However, the coffee and the cakes are a bit pricy and nothing special at all.
