Quality espresso and tasty cakes are served up in cool surrounds. Sample the cinnamon buns over a cup of Cult and Done

Under Pressure Espresso is a gem for caffeine lovers, providing beautifully crafted coffee in cool surrounds. Check out the coffee bean spice rack and exposed brickwork with a twist, or take a seat at one of the rustic tables and chairs and take advantage of the WiFi. 

Serving beans from London's Workshop Coffee, from a Victoria Arduino espresso machine, it has a simple menu that’s reminiscent of places such as Prufrock. You can have espresso with or without smooth, steamed milk (say flat white and you will get just that), along with filter and brewed selections.

The espresso is Workshop's excellent Cult of Done blend – a clean, sweet and spicy brew – or, if you’re not in the mood for coffee, there’s a selection of Canton Teas to choose from.

Lil’s Parlour supplies amazing cakes, while the fantastic bread and pastries (and Scandinavian buns) come courtesy of Thirteen Bakers.

Under Pressure Espresso is a delight, and worth venturing out to Sutton for.
