Climpson's Coffee Bar at Old Spitalfields Market

Pod 3, 16 Horner Square, London E1 6EW, UK

Editor's Review

Standing proud in Old Spitalfields Market, Climpson’s Coffee Bar proves to be worthy of the prime position. As part of the Climpson & Sons group, it is something of an authority in the industry, and a must-visit for the coffee connoisseur (or if you just want to learn a bit about quality coffee while you drink it). Rather than being a typical café like its sister over in Broadway Market, its form is a square bar with a few surrounding stools, almost like a pub: coffee beer on draught, batch cold brew in the summer.

The barista-barmen really know their craft and aren’t afraid to experiment with it and fine tune their way to the perfect cup; it is therefore difficult to choose a favourite from their silky lattes to robust espressos, but the clean and crisp Panama Filter Coffee is particularly delectable – as sweet as caramel, it has all the flavour of a South American brew while staying extremely balanced. Brewing apparatus is also available.
