Roupell St) and Lower Marsh is one of those streets that is bang up against the station but manages to feel like a sleepy High St - or at least what a High St used to feel like. I had read about Scooterworks cafe and had been curious to check it out. I go through Waterloo station every day of the week but I am either running late or I forget or I'm already caffeined up to the hilt from our pretty decent home brewed flat whites (made on our wonderful Rancilio Silvia). Saturday I finally made it there - what a cool little cafe. The vibe is all 50s, diner style but with an alternative edge (in case you are picturing Johnny Rockets or similar). It was really chilled out at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon - people sitting in the cute little courtyard out back, a really friendly woman serving and decor inside that reminded me of places I used to hang out in at Uni (in a good way!). There was a notice for a screening of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof downstairs in the basement so I guess there's more space down there. I just loved the whole feel of the place and will definitely be back. In the spirit of honesty, the flat white (made on a beautiful Italian 1957 Faema espresso machine) was a little weak and a little too hot for my tastes but still absolutely drinkable. I really liked this place - it will definitely be a pitstop when I am commuting through Waterloo or lurking around the Southbank.
