Saint Espresso (Angel)
Angel House, 26 Pentonville Rd, N1 9HJ
Angel's Saint Espresso is the second location from the team behind the popular Leyas next to Mornington Crescent station. Taking inspiration from their location and its moniker, the owner, Leon, has clearly enjoyed putting the café together. With an impressive attention to detail, he has created a distinctively austere, almost religious atmosphere, complete with stark, custom-made black shelving. The café is framed with plumbing pipes which create intricate wall displays. Communion is taken before a black, customised Strada. A black light fixture hangs dramatically from above, while candlesticks and an undercurrent of bronze reinforce the theme.
Of course this is just a backdrop, which, alongside the simple food menu, places the coffee centre stage. Saint roast their own coffee for espresso based and filter options. The Lalani & Co tea menu looks equally impressive. So, head to Angel and let Saint Espresso be your guide to caffeinated bliss.
