I love the idea of café society, but I just don’t have the temperament to spend forty-five minutes nursing a cappuccino. My inability to relax is surely adding years to my face as I type (frantically of course) however it does mean that I can fit the maximum events, exercise and drinks meetings into my weekend as possible.
Caffeine is essential to keeping weekends full so I made a pit stop at Work Shop in Marylebone. The brunch menu in the Clerkenwell branch has been seriously tempting me, but I was in the neighbourhood and needed a quick boost so their espresso-style bar made perfect sense.
Pretty and super strength, even the foam gave me a kick in the pants. Croissant to dunk and I was golden.
