3 Of The Best Coffee Places In Shoreditch

A big part of looking into commercial property in Shoreditch is seeing what else the area has to offer so you know that it’s the right spot for you and your business to consider establishing a presence in.

You’re sure to want to go for coffee runs and head out for lunch, so here are just some of the very best coffee hotspots to put at the top of your must-visit list.

 

Shoreditch Grind

213 Old Street

A few years ago, the roasting company set up a crowdfunding campaign to build a state-of-the-art roastery to supply coffee to its various locations around London. It opened a year later in a converted warehouse in the middle of Shoreditch, before being relocated this year to Elephant and Castle to make way for a bigger facility.

Shoreditch Grind is the original espresso bar, cocktail bar and all-day restaurant – and there’s even a recording studio upstairs! It’s been open since 2011 and is now a renowned local landmark.

 

Paper & Cup

18 Calvert Avenue

This is a non-profit social enterprise set up by the Spitalfields Crypt Trust (SCT), with a wide range of delicious dishes on the menu, as well as great coffee and lots of books to read. Exhibitions are also put on by local artists on a regular basis every couple of months, helping to raise money for the SCT.

The space is also available for hire for events, parties and photo shoots, so if you have something in mind at work along such lines, it might be worth popping in for a coffee and a chat.

 

Look mum no hands!

49 Old Street

This was one of the first cycle cafes to open its doors in the UK, combining a diner with a bike workshop, an exhibition space and a bar, first opening on Old Street in Shoreditch back in 2010.

There’s an ongoing programme of events throughout the year, ranging from book launches, screenings, art and photography exhibitions, Tour de France screenings and more.
