Dose - Smithfields

It's always good to stumble across another good coffee place - I had read about this on a couple of other blogs but had no idea where it was. I spotted it while I was in a cab this morning so went back afterwards for a full investigation. That old formula was spot on again - friendly Aussie staff CHECK, quality coffee expertly poured CHECK, good looking cakes CHECK (with a nice touch - Anzac biscuits which for any Aussie or Kiwi out there will instantly bring back childhood memories), another pin on my Central London Coffee Survival Guide map - CHECK.

Dose Espresso on Urbanspoon


  1. Yes, it *is" "all that"
    ... as I recently experienced the last two mornings. Thanks for the discriminating and detailed recommendations (that I've found especially valuable for highlighting exceptional coffee in the City).

  2. "Flat White" defined (by Dose barista):
    Ristretto (more flavorful) shots mixed with less textured milk than a Cappucino, yielding a drink that sits between a macchiato and a cappucino.

    "To achieve the "flat", non-frothy texture the steamed milk is poured from the bottom of the jug, holding back the lighter froth on the top in order to access milk with smaller bubbles, making the drink smooth and velvety in texture" []

  3. Glad you liked it - I wish I worked closer, I love this place.
