Hanging Out At Store Street Espresso London WC1

Store Street Espresso, aptly named for its prime location and the exceptional coffee it serves, is a must-visit spot for artisan coffee lovers. Years ago, I enjoyed this charming café and recently decided to return while in the neighbourhood. It was even more delightful than I remembered. Whether you’re seeking coffee, breakfast, brunch, or lunch in Bloomsbury, Store Street Espresso is the place to be. Because of its proximity to the London universities, it’s favoured by a buzzy and intellectually pleasing crowd, so you’ll be in good company!

When it comes to food, Store Street Espresso doesn’t disappoint. Their savoury selection includes three mouthwatering toasties – cheese with mustard, the unique ‘kimcheese’ (kimchi and cheese), or the classic cheese and ham. Each one is a flavourful delight, priced at £6.50-7.50. One standout dish is the avocado on toast. This delightful offering features toasted sourdough topped with smashed avocado, chilli, assorted seeds, pea shoots and a wedge of lime for an extra zing. Priced at £7.50, it’s a must-try for any avocado lover.

You’ll often find a fresh salad that pairs perfectly with a sausage roll or a spinach and filo pie at lunchtime. They also offer filled brioche rolls, such as the creamy and satisfying egg mayo.

Try banana bread, banana blondies, or bread and butter pudding for those with a sweet tooth. I enjoyed a lovely little gluten-free cherry almond cake that was simply delightful.

During my visit, an exhibition of sketches adorned the walls, adding a creative touch. A skylight in the ceiling with plants hanging down brightened the space beautifully. Downstairs, you’ll find additional seating and the toilets. There are also a few seats outside, perfect for enjoying a sunny day.
