Quite some time ago, I was invited by Jon, one of the founders of the Hackney Coffee Company to visit their store and sample some treats
To be clear, this right here, is not a sponsored post, I just really enjoyed my time there and thought you guys might like it if you’re ever in the area
As previously promised, I’ll always write the truth of my experiences!
Upon arrival I was instantly impressed by the use of space, this narrow, two storied coffee shop makes the most of every inch of itself and a clear sense of style is visible throughout
Most of their menu is what you can see on the counter, including various pastries, brownies, flapjacks and cakes although there’s also a modest hot food menu written up on their blackboard
The bowler hat lighting display is the shops centrepiece and I loved it!
After a thorough nose downstairs, Himself and I took our goodies up some of the steepest stairs ever, for a quiet space to chat and enjoy our noms!
I got the almond croissant while Himself had the bacon butty
I stole the first bite of his sandwich…I’m pretty sure that’s what marriage entitles you to!
It was totally nom
And our drinks arrived just in time, so I didn’t get into any troubles for the thievery!!
My black coffee was deliciously strong, without that harsh kick that some have
and a wonderfully creamy hot chocolate for Himself
My croissant was perfect, soft yet flakey with loads of layers of utter moreishness!
After enjoying the last of our food, I spoted a lone bowler hat on the bookshelf
I didn’t go full Fosse, but, I mean, what would you have done!?!
Replacing the hat and enjoying the last of our noms, we headed back out into the real world
We really enjoyed our time at the Hackney Coffee Co., so if you’re looking for somewhere quiet with great coffee, good food and a bowler hat, you know where to go!
And in my humble opinion, it’ll be well worth it.
