Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

There are two sides to Climpson, a tiny fixture in Broadway Market serving some of the capital’s best coffee. From Monday to Friday, it’s a popular place for a hot brew in relaxed conditions, perhaps with a light meal or snack. On Saturday and Sunday, it’s a victim of its own well-deserved success. The crowds are massive, even when the weather’s less than wonderful.

Once you’ve queued and placed your order, you’ll have to wait for a good few minutes to get it. If you take sugar in your brew, it will be added by the barista, not by you. And the coffee will be served in a paper cup – ceramic just would not be practical – which inevitably fails to do full justice to it. This is not a criticism of Climpson, which roasts great beans and employs people who know everything about how to brew them. It’s merely a warning to anyone who wants to savour the goods under optimal conditions.

If you can, visit during the week and enjoy tasty little dishes both sweet and savoury (the soups are always very good), and drink coffee from ceramic cups – and add your own sugar.
