A friend and I decided to go on a little coffee adventure, and wander to the top of London fields, and visit the trendy little Wilton Way Cafe. Located on a quiet suburban street, just a couple of blocks away from the park, the cafe is surrounded by boutique shops, galleries, and is the home to London Fields Radio.
We only had time for a quick stop for a couple of takeaway coffee’s. I had my usual Flat White, and my friend had a Flat White with Soy, which she informs me is getting harder to get these days for some reason. While we waited, we perched upon the stools in front of the window. A perfect vantage point for people watching, and keeping an eye on your bike parked out front. Or if you prefer, you can sit in the sun on the benches out front.
The walls are covered with artwork, which gives the cafe a sense of community, which is aided by the independent London Fields Radio, who offer the opportunity for local artists to perform a live session on the air.
The cafe offers a variety of baked goods, and has a small kitchen if you are in the mood for lunch. The coffee tasted nice, serving Climpson and Sons Beans, but since we were having them takeaway they were served in paper cups, so I didn’t get to appreciate the preparation. According to my friend, when we arrived, one of the baristas looked at me and whispered to one of the members of staff “that guy looks like you”, adding to my list of doppelgänger’s. I didn’t notice it myself, but my friend agreed.
Great coffee, served by attractive doppelgänger staff (even if I do say so myself). They also offer a great opportunity for local musicians.
The cafe is limited for seating, and the layout of the cafe does make you feel like the staff are hiding behind the counter.
Flat White £2.30
