Store Street Espresso, London | By Mike Lyons
Store Street Espresso is perfectly situated just a stones throw from Euston train station, as well as being down the road from several major universities (if you’re lucky enough to still be someone that goes to uni. Please, cherish your moments here, life as you know it nose dives after uni).
In terms of the what’s available, well, these guys offer a selection of their favourite roasts from Origin coffee roasters and Square Mile – two titans of the coffee industry. Alongside their fantastic coffee, they also serve a huge variety of cakes, pastries, home-made porridge and a surprisingly extensive menu of freshly made food, so you can be sure they’ll have something for you.
As you make your way inside, the shop is considerably bigger than what you’d expect from the outside – so much room for activities. With an almost divine light streaming in from overhead and a botanical medley hanging from the ceiling, this orangery-art-studio fusion really does make for the perfect setting to catch up with an old friend (or a new one. Hey, who knows who you could meet here…). Its minimalist yet elegant. And if you’re still not satisfied then they’ve converted the basement into additional seating so you can head down for a cheeky frolic.
Alongside their large variety of coffees and teas, you’ll also find a selection of different milks, which means intolerant glutens and vegans are all welcome. What’s even better is that the menu is very reasonably priced, considering that this place is on the outskirts of central London.
Store Street Espresso also sell a great range of beans, brewing equipment and teas, which makes it a great place to kick start your home brewing experience. Alternatively, we - for whatever reason - also know somewhere else that sells a lot of that kinda thing as well… (to avoid any confusion, we’re talking about ourselves, you know, the coffee marketplace).
Whether you’ve just arrived in London via Euston, if you are heading somewhere via Euston, if you live in Euston, if you are passing through Euston or if just want somewhere with a bit of understated possaz, this place is perfectly located.
As Store Street Espresso’s location is set back from some of the busier streets, it serves as a nice little hideaway that gives you a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of everyday London. This, combined with the fact they sell quality beans from some of the best in the business, makes it well worth a visit – get you a café that can do both. Chances are you’ll leave with a bag of the coffee you just enjoyed to brew yourself at home, we certainly did.
