#365DaysofLondonBaby – Day 4- Fix Coffee

Fix CoffeeGood morning! Hopefully, you had a good start in the week! If not, let Paul Currie cheer you up! Tonight is his Comedy Show at the Soho Theatre :). No, I am not running out of ideas yet, no worries. #365DaysofLondonBaby is about well-known places / activities to do, but also just to share some of my favourites, so every now and then, I’ll introduce a nice restaurant / shop etc. that I got to know since my time in London (some of my locals or otherwise). I am neither taking any commissions from the places nor do I claim they are the best or unique in London, I just like them and want to share them here.

Fix CoffeeEnough intro! Today is not about a corner pub as in the picture on the top of this post…wait…almost. Its about Fix Coffee – an independent Coffee Shop in Whitecross Street, occupying the site of a former Corner Pub. Just as in many of the excellent coffee places in this area, you can expect good coffee (they use a house roast by Crimson and Sons), pastries, sandwiches and a fridge with lunch grub.

Fix CoffeeWhat I like about Fix Coffee though, is the atmosphere. It has a good vibe and its share of “Hipsters with Macbook” sitting and working there. But its not over-hipster / “too cool for school” and has a friendly atmosphere, almost like a good pub. You can just hang around on the sofas and let the time pass and – hipster or not- you’ll feel welcome. The pictures here I took on Sunday late afternoon, so excuse the lighting, but just wanted to show the place as it is. Cozy and welcoming.

If you are around on Lunchtime during the week, you can also check out Whitecross Street Lunch Food Market, one of the best Street Food Places in London, existing since a time when Street Food was not even Hipster – but that’s a story for another post 🙂
