StArt Coffee - Columbia Rd E2
StArt Space, a gallery in Columbia Road, StArt Coffee is probably the smallest coffee bar I have encountered. We visited at the end of a heavily caffeinated day - Hurwundeki, CapheVn, Prufrock - but still managed to sample the wares and they were pretty good. As you can see our friend Rob was pretty happy with the whole experience. Columbia Road is lovely on a Saturday - no crowds, quite peaceful - obviously no flowers but still lots of the shops are open and you can browse without the rubber-neck crowds. I love the walk from Broadway Market through Columbia Road, over Shoreditch High St, through Arnold Circus to Redchurch Street and it's a caffeine wonderland. I would happily do it every weekend.
