Fora Recommends: Great Coffee In Spitalfields

July 2019

  Our Spitalfields offices are lovely for lots of reasons. And one of those is the great coffee stops on the doorstep. Whether your eyelids are feeling heavy or you want to take a meeting offsite, have a breather at one of these coffee havens.

  Creatives and big thinkers all over the world are fuelled by coffee. It’s a great excuse for anyone wanting a reason to get out the office and sup at some caffeine-filled nectar. Here’s where to access your caffeine hit near Liverpool Street and Spitalfields. Nude Espresso A good all-rounder, Nude Espresso is all about keeping things simple and delicious. They roast the coffee themselves and even give workshops on how to do it – so you know you’re in good hands. You’ll find two cafes in East London and they’re both within walking distance of Old Spitalfields Market. TRADE For coffee near Brick Lane, TRADE on Commercial Street could be your new local. It serves up small-batch roasted coffee and humble food. A homemade blackberry and almond friand on the side should never been turned down. Rake’s Right by Liverpool Street Station you’ll find Rake’s. It may be a famous City of London cocktail bar by night, but by day it’s all about coffee (unless you fancy something stronger). Or if you’re on a detox, try the Halle Berry smoothie. Climpson and sons This East London institution has a few cafes and pop-ups across the area, including a stall at Old Spitalfields Market. Perch on a stool or opt to bring your coffee back to your Fora workspace. Fazenda If Italian coffee is your thing – or you happen to be near Petticoat Lane Market – pop into Fazenda. This gem promises a proper espresso and big hearty cakes to go with it. If there’s some tiramisu left, definitely order yourself a portion. The Canvas Café Just a two-minute walk from our Princelet Street space and five minutes from Fora on Folgate Street, The Canvas Café is the place to get your coffees if it’s raining. Everything on the menu is vegan, so it’s a guilt-free break option.   Although we encourage you to get out and explore the local area, you can always grab a coffee at your Fora workspace when you’re short on time. Why not pay us a visit to see how we’re making coffee and tea at work a real treat.
