Dark Habit

74 Salusbury Rd, Queen's Park, NW6 6NU

Editor's Review

Dark Habit have undergone something of a revamp and remain a real unexpected treat for many in Queens Park. On the former site of Black Box. The interior, making excellent use of dark wood is impressive and the coffee featuring a rotation of roasters impresses too. Recently, Roundhill, James Gourmet, The Barn Berlin, Vagabond, Dear Green and others have featured on espresso and v60. Queens Park might not be on everybody’s route but is well worth a visit for the park and a visit to Dark Habit. For those who live and work around here, Dark Habit is a boon. The wood, we are informed is Iroko, a hardwood from Nigeria and named by the Yoruba people – it was also once believed to have supernatural properties, inhabited by the spirit of the tree which could send anyone mad who came face to face with it.  Dark Habit is well worth a visit for great coffee and cake. Just don’t stare at the wood too long!
