Climpson & Sons
Chill-out with a good strong brew
Popular plate: Chew on some sweet cinnamon toast with cream cheese and honey.
Another Antipodean-run café, Climpson & Sons was one of the first to bring Australia’s smoothest coffee to London. Located in the busy and buzzing Broadway market, it caters to East London’s fashion crowd on the weekends and is a great place to chill-out during the week. A row of the best-dressed caffeine addicts permanently line the pavement tables, while their pugs wait for tidbits by their feet.
It may be terribly trendy, but Climpson & Sons are still very serious about their coffee. They make their own in the roastery just behind the café, where you can also pick up a range of beans.
