DOSE ESPRESSO

The Find: Dose Espresso is a superb owner-operated espresso bar near Barbican Station in The City...

This place lived up to all expectations. The decor is contemporary and well considered, the food beautifully presented and the coffee is simply great. Not only are the staff passionate about their beans, but also about what they do with them!

Although Dose Espresso is geared up for take-aways (due to its size) they do have a few stools and window seats avaliable if you fancy 'drinking in'. They have a good selection of magazines and newspapers as well as books about espresso to enjoy whilst sipping a satisfying cup of caffeine.

The food ranges from their "mighty fine" BLT's, freshly made salads and sandwiches, to delicious brownies and pastries.

Oh and they get extra points for having their menu in alphabet fridge magnets...

If I worked in the City I would certainly make this a daily destination...
