Brewbar Espresso (CLOSED)
Time Out says
If your heart flutters and your knees buckle at the words ‘single origin’ or ‘steam pressed’ (and all this before you even get to the coffee, you lucky thing) then Brewbar Espresso is right up your street. Or rather, if we’re being geographically correct, right under your local municipal art gallery.
The friendly baristas in this basement café take their coffee very seriously. As is to be expected for a café which sits under an art gallery in the corner of a design shop, they also do a nice bit of free-pour coffee art.
If you’re after something to soak up the Arabica, we can recommend their crusty ciabattas packed with locally sourced ham, crumbly cheese, roast veg and the like and we often make a pitstop for a gooey brownie after a wander around the art gallery.
In fact, surrounded by inspiring art and design, we could happily while away several hours at this place. As many creative types with laptops do.
