Basement coffee shop. Beautiful pared back interior. Concrete floor. Grey and white walls. Scandi wood tables. Brushed metal strip lighting. Like an Apple Store for coffee. Very small service counter. Delicious pastries and doughnuts displayed. Nice branding. Friendly staff. Super sugar hit from BreadAhead-style doughnut. Great tasting coffee.

Coffee Shop: Fernandez And Wells, Denmark Street
Time: Early Thursday morning
Coffee beans: Has Bean (own branded)

Open. Light. Airy. Big space. Lots of wood, brushed metal, and mottled glass. Window benches look out onto guitar shops. Central horseshoe food counter. Coffee counter set back by windows. Lots of great food on display. Citrus fruits dotted around the place. Hanging Iberico ham in the window. Blackboard prices. Indie incidental music on. Friendly staff. Imagine it’s popular with recruiters. Lovely coffee.
