Coffee Jar

Coffee Jar opened in 2013 when owner Maria quit her finance job to focus on baking, and Camdenites have been embracing the place enthusiastically ever since. There’s seating for just ten people, with minimal decor based on large quantities of reclaimed scaffolding board. The house beans come from Monmouth, with a changing roster of guest. Our espresso came from the hand of a barista who worked meticulously, right down to warming the cup with a puff of steam to ensure a properly hot shot. The food offering is sharply focussed: a few sandwiches, plus baked goods both bought in and produced on-site. Add on friendly service and you’ve got a winning formula. We can see why most of the customers during our visit were regulars.

It's approx 10 mins since I devoured my lunch from The Coffee Jar. I'm SO glad I stumbled upon this little gem. It's tiny in fact, with seats for maybe 10 people. Don't let that put you off. The decor hasn't strayed far from the minimal x scandi x hipster vibes sweeping across London right now, and baked goods are stacked high in true artisan style. It's attractive, clean and inviting. My eyes flickered between the banana bread and hazelnut white chocolate cookie before I chose the later, then ordered a delicious sounding sourdough toasted sarnie with avocado, mozzarella, sun-blushed toms & basil pesto. All the things I adore. Then I noticed they serve Monmouth coffee - it's the best coffee in the city - so went for my usual soya latte. By this point the queue was heaving behind me so I shifted sideways and waited... 5 minutes later I was strolling down Parkway, goods in hand, inhaling the waft of basil pesto. This was the best £8 I've spent all week. I'll certainly be back for that banana bread!
