Perhaps its location in an art school has compelled this café, whose name is annoyingly stylised as LOWERCASE (oh, how ironic), to look the part. Huge, airy and sunlight-drenched, the space has wooden palettes for tables – so you can prop your cuppa up in warehouse chic style – and a harem’s worth of pillows to make your time there as homely as possible. This laid-back but trendy café/bistro serves a mix of pastas and pizzas amongst other mains, as well as light bites in its selection of sandwiches and confectioneries. There is also a bar area – which regularly holds events – with beers served on tap or craft brews by the bottle.
