More coffee shops in more places
So we have been all over the place recently to some new places and some old ones too!
Without further ado….
so let’s start with…
Lucia Wood Green
This is quite a large coffee shop with a heavy emphasis on food, the coffees were what you would expect (The Mocha was a flat white and the Americano was black – I suppose it is pretty hard to get that wrong) The surprising thing was how perfectly large the cups were!
However there was a large amount of Orange people and short Turkish men, loud and full of horrible children throwing food.
The Homestead Cafe – Beckenham Place Park
On our Capital Ring walk we have been finding any Coffee Shops along the way this shop was on the part to come next week. Beckenham Place Park starts very meh but then turns very boujee – around by the formal gardens there lays this coffee shop. In a large courtyard filled with tables and many many people – you order as loud as possible at the side and then it gets yelled by some really pretty staff when its ready. The Mocha was goood!!! The americano was pretty good too!
Charlie’s – Wood Green
From the outside this little shop looks quite appealing – lots of greenery – flowers on the wall – very similar to quite a lot of the shops in the area. There was a small array of food with lots of empty spaces. We struggled with the order as the Staff didn’t speak any english. The coffee was mhh over all not great but not bad.
Delicio – Eltham
When we visited Wicca Moon the other week, we asked if they knew of any decent coffee shops nearby. They offered Delicio as the only suggestion – we had walked past it thinking it more of a wine/cocktail bar but we took a detour to sample the coffee.
The coffee was good! worth the trip.
Another Coffee in another section of the Capital Ring Walk – This time Crystal Palace, this seems to be a chain – there are 7/8 individual stores – but this one was on the way. There is a large selection of food on the menu outside – they even have Vegimite! We ordered two sandwiches, 1 Mocha and 1 Americano. The staff were really nice and really friendly – even pointing out a few other coffee shops to try in the area. However the food took a Loooooooooong time and the coffee was pretty bland. The coffee was a 2 star but the staff brought it up to a 3.
This is one of those places we have always meant to go into (Since it changed) we had previously gone in a couple of years ago but we tend to avoid Dalston like the plague! – when the coffee wasn’t good. The coffee hasn’t really changed that much – apart from the cups seem to have shrunk by 90% – we are of course in thimble land. The garden is nice though.
Well there you go that should feed your habit for a while, we know it’s fed at least one of ours! Come back soon for more coffee shops we have found as well as more walking adventures.
