Stop for a coffee at Maison d’ être

Posted in Highbury - London, Coffee, Living at Pure

Passing by this little café opposite Highbury & Islington station you’ll see the windows fogged with coffee steam and the breath of those inside, chatting over a homemade cake and coffee sourced from Nude, a London based micro-roastery.

You’ll even see people braving the chill on the tiny outside space: testament to the ability of Kim and Kosta to create a homey feeling space despite the business of its location on Highbury corner. There’s a garden area, a record player and local artists’ work hangs on the wall: this really could be a room in somebody’s house. Care and attention is put into each detail and even if the food can be hit and miss, it’s worth paying a visit for the coffee, cake and good vibes.
