Workshop Coffee’s Clerkenwell Cafe opened in spring 2011, and ever since they’ve been roasting and serving some of the most delicious coffee London has to offer.
It’s no secret that coffee is the student’s best friend, especially if you'll be frantically studying all day. Pure residents will be pleased to learn that this cafe is just around the corner from our City accommodation. As it’s only a five-minute walk or so, Clerkenwell Cafe would be a great place for you to revise, relax or socialise, especially if you need your caffeine fix during the day.
The cafe was voted ‘Best Vegetarian Breakfast’ venue by Observer Food Monthly, and was even named ‘Best Independent Cafe’ at the 2012 Cafe Society Awards. There really is something for everyone here, and all at student-friendly prices.
Food and drink
If you love your coffee, you'll know what makes a good brew. Here, beans are ground fresh and as they're needed, so you know you're in for a treat.
The speciality is piping-hot drinks, and you'll also find that Clerkenwell Cafe can cure a rumbling stomach. Its wide-ranging food menu can take care of your breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Of course, freshly baked pastries and desserts are on sale throughout the day too, ideal if you're in a rush between lectures.
When it’s too hot for coffee, or you’d just like something else, there is a variety of fizzy and still soft drinks to choose from.
An evening spot
Later on the cafe becomes a great spot for something stronger, as it serves local beers and a wide choice of cocktails. It’s the perfect way for you to start off a longer night out, and is also ideal if you're after a more relaxed and low-key evening.
Perfect for Pure City residents
This award-winning cafe is only a short walk away from our Pure City accommodation in Barbican, which would be a great base for any London student. As well as quality coffeehouses, our accommodation is also close to many of London's top universities and attractions.
