The station at Abbey Wood is being refurbished ready for Crossrail to launch at the end of the year, as part of that it now has a posh entrance and in the foyer is a Coffee House, it is part of WHSmith and felt rather ‘Costa’ to me but tried not to hold that against it.
I had a cappuccino and a pain au chocolat, food range wasn’t huge but pastry was only £1 when bought with coffee, which was a nice small bonus. Pain au chocolat was okay, soft and fresh but pretty much the same as you can buy in multi-packs at most supermarkets.
Coffee nice enough, I was getting a train and it lasted me a fair while, which is what I was hoping for, can have the more fancy, and smaller serving, when time to chill out.
There was some seating in the cafe so if waiting longer for a train it would be a bit warmer than being on the station. Could be a busy little place once Crossrail gets going and amount of trains using the station increases, I may well avail myself of it when I am there again, got a loyalty card now so need to earn the freebie.
