Department of Coffee - Norton Folgate

Liberty of Norton Folgate

The Department of Coffee and Social Affairs' third cafe, the Norton Folgate is, without a doubt, London's longest coffeeshop. Making the best of an odd shape, they've created a nice bright space, complete with light fixtures that represent the molecular structure of caffeine! Like their other cafes, from Soho to Farringdon, the staff are approachable and knowledgeable.

The filter coffees change regularly, and their roasting has been turning heads lately. It should be noted that Department of Coffee and Social Affairs is quietly pulling off quite a run in London!
