Londoners Have Been Espressing Their Love For Coffee

A recent Evening Standard article revealed a huge spike in the number of independent coffee shops in London. The capital has witnessed a 700% rise in the number of coffee shops since 2010.

The boom is likely to stem from the appeal of artisan coffee, as well as the high quality service many independent coffee shops provide. Many consumers turn to independent coffee shops for a unique coffee experience; one where people can eat and drink as well as socialise. The growing gig economy might also be attributable to the popularity of coffee shops in general, as many freelancers and tech entrepreneurs opt to use coffee shops as a mobile work place.

Shoreditch, Hackney, Dalston and it’s surrounding areas are all trendy destinations to set up shop and brew a cup of Joe.

If you’re looking for an A1 retail unit located in prime position in Shoreditch, Hudson Yard on Charlotte Road offers just that. With 1,216 sq ft, the unit provides stylish features such as exposed brickwork and wooden floors.
