    Cheeky little cafe. Good coffee, friendly baristas and nice sandwiches for lunch - what the neighborhood needs ☕☕

    Delicious coffee ☕️

    Decent coffee however on the bitter side.I prefer my coffee to be more acidic. But if you like the ones with the bitter aftertaste definitely the place for you

    Smallest, but probably one of the best espresso bars in the world. Should be on the list of stops to make on the espresso touring circuit.

    A couple of seats inside & outside, not cozy enough to sit in for long. Flat White is not as good as I've expected as so many of you online have given it overwhelmingly good review.

    Bit disappointed to be honest. Coffee was good, but not as out of this world as I'd expected from the reviews here - and I'd finished my drink before they'd even brought my friends tea over.

    Excellent coffee and nice place. But come on - £3.40 for a cappuccino has to be a new high (or low)!
  • Marjan V.
    I do not know how they did it but the Espresso (double) was like the best Espresso I ever had in my life! I almost had a coffee orgasm! I kid you not.

    The place is tiny which only boosts friendliness of the staff. Coffee is excellent, worth coming from wherever you are!

    Tiny but excellent place to have a coffee. Very limited seating (mostly on the street) so be prepared to take your drink away...

    The Espresso Room is possibly the teeny tiniest coffee shop I've ever been to - but it makes up in quality what it lacks in size. Their coffees - the smell alone tells you they're good.

    They throw in cocoa powder by default in their milk drinks. Ask them to leave it out if that's not your thing.

    They do semi skimmed milk now as the "skinny" option, tastes much better than skimmed!
