Little remains of the original Wren church of St Nicholas Cole Abbey, wrecked by German bombers in 1941. But this is still a singularly striking place. It was converted in April by St Nicks Talk, a ‘midweek church’ that takes over for half an hour every Thursday. The rest of the time it’s a place to have a relaxing time in a far from relaxing precinct of the City. Food is simple and good, whether sweet or savoury. The coffee comes from Workshop, and the sweet, creamy espresso blend, flawlessly brewed, would have been perfect if it had been properly hot. Service is charming and friendly. This is a lovely place in every way.
