Lj Coffeehouse - Winnett St W1
Brewed Boy (just round the corner in Rupert St). Anyway the important thing is that I have discovered Lj Coffeehouse now, because it's a gem. I had a flat white there this morning and I have to say it's a long time since I have seen someone make a coffee with such love - the care with which the friendly chap who served me ground the beans, packed the portafilter and steamed the milk was really great to see. And the result was excellent. They use Union beans, which I was unsure about but actually tasted really good. There were some delicious homemade cakes on display and the breakfast menu looked mighty tasty. I actually went back there this afternoon because I had a major vanilla milkshake craving (hey, I went to the gym today, I deserve a freakin milkshake, don't judge) because I had noticed that they offered a "vanilla bean shake". Oh man, it was goooood - pretty much like drinking liquefied ultra vanilla beany ice-cream which I know probably makes it a calorie bomb, but who cares. It was amazing. So check out this little winner of a cafe - friendly, good coffee, superb milkshakes and (by the looks of it) great food. What's not to like?
