Curators Coffee Studio

Curators Coffee Studio

Curators Coffee Studio is nothing short of a haven within the complex topography of the City. Visitors are met by an attractive collection of custom teal-plated coffee machinery - including the star attraction of a La Marzocco Strada - expertly handled by Catherine and her team. Their own roast served daily alongside guest espressos and filters from other roasters. Croissants arrive fresh every morning from Yeast Bakery along with cake from Bittersweet Bakers - and toasted sandwiches are available at lunchtime.

The cafe, as the name suggests, is studio-sized, but the tall windows and high ceiling, combined with the soft grey wall, create an impression of space and a sensation of calm. The collection of wonderful illustrations casually decorating the cafe, not to mention the evident skill and approachable manner of the staff, make Curators a unique getaway - and a place worth visiting again and again.
