Workshop Coffee Co. Review

Top 10 things to know about Workshop Coffee Co:

1) I’m always happy to visit Clerkenwell. The food is exciting, the drink is inspiring and I can pretend to be a designer, which was a childhood dream, that sadly receeded once I realised that I had no artistic talent.

2) Workshop Coffee Co have picked up on the stylish Clerkenwell vibe real well. As my fellow diner pointed out, this place is for hipsters who’ve grown up a bit, who've got a little older, who want their music a bit quieter, their wine a bit nicer, and their food in a restaurant rather than from a van (and who could blame them).

3) And so we sat, amid bare brick walls, exposed ventilation pipes and a growing wall (yes, a wall of plants – its great), realising that we, like ageing hipsters, quite liked things to be a bit smoother, but of course, still stylish.

4) The food was elegant and not complicated by too many ingredients. My main of seabass, polenta chips and salsa was fabulous.

5) However, surprisingly, the best thing about the whole meal was the side dish of beetroot with crème fraiche, which was on a par with a good steak for tastebud satisfaction and depth of flavour.

6) The service was attentive although we were there on a mid-week, and they weren’t too busy. I imagine that a Saturday brunch would be an entirely different affair.

7) Our fellow diners were mostly attractive people on dates (or work colleagues talking about their work as designers, the lucky so-and-sos) but overall it was a quiet, well behaved crowd.

8) So now I come to the coffee. I expected good things. It’s called the Coffee Workshop Co, so I expected skilled baristas performing miracles, and my after dinner coffee was delightful.

9) My companion, however, went for the excitingly named ‘Aeropress coffee’, which is a new way of doing your brew. Unfortunately neither of us liked it, at all.

10) All in all though, it was an enjoyable meal and another good reason to visit Clerkenwell. Thanks Workshop Coffee Co.

“A real cool first date bar/cafe in a really cool, up-and-coming area. The walk around bar, the coffee grinding machine and the wall of vegetation are just the tip of the cool iceberg. This Melbourne export shows its class in its coffee offerings and brunch. Disappointing juice selection but the uber ebullient service totally makes up for it. Ace!”

"Dreadful pub, run by people who have zero idea about hospitality or running a pub. Upon arrival we sat in the back garden that only had one other table occupied , when we tried to order off the lunch menu..." Which venue is this?
