The Coffee Lounge – Woolwich Market

WP_20151115_006We’ve been meaning to try this place out for a while and it finally happened this weekend without being planned, which is often the best way to go I think, random coffee.

I had a medium decaf latte and a brownie whilst Kerry had a medium Americano and a flapjack. Total price was about £8.50 which seems fair, and a bargain looking at the size of both slices.WP_20151115_004

The latte was very nice, sugar added just to take edge off as it was a tad bitter – I could have drank without but sometimes it’s nice to be a little naughty. The brownie was nice, it wasn’t quite soft enough to be amazing but good enough.

Kerry’s Americano was nice, not amazing but good enough to go again. The flapjack wasn’t chewy enough, it was more like a large oaty biscuit.WP_20151115_005

The place itself is okay, clean enough and staff were professional if not particularly friendly. One slightly weird thing was the tables of young men, 3 separate tables with guys in their late teens / early 20s – few of them kept going and coming back, not saying they were involved in the drug trade but it is close to where others congregate.

I think we will go again, the food selection seemed good, if earlier it would be nice to try the breakfast pastries.


Rabot 1745 – Borough Market

This was a solo journey and was for a take away so not going to have a lot to say really. The place itself felt a bit more like a bar, but that could just be because there was a lorry blocking the windows and making it feel dark. I only had a decaf latte (£2.50) as I had already got food from the market itself, but their range of food looked good and will be worth a further visit to test a few things out.

The coffee wasn’t huge – I say that a lot it seems so maybe I need to revise my expectations of size. UntitledIt was very nice, a tad bitter so sweetened up with a little sugar, sugar lumps are cool but they do seem to take longer to dissolve.

I will definitely be going back with Kerry as the coffee is good and it is located near Borough Market, my tip would be to go in the week rather than at the weekend as the market is just a crush of humanity! And whilst there pop to Whirld for some fudge.
