Attendant (Fitzrovia)

 
What do you think of this place? Love it or not?
Quality coffee and food in salvaged olde-worlde public toilet
A lovingly reinvented late-Victorian underground toilet that opened in February 2013 as an instantly hip and intimate outlet for espresso-based coffees, breakfast (porridge, jam doughnuts, french toast, eggs et al) and lunch (sandwiches, salads, pulled pork, veggie things etc). Former PR person Pete Tomlinson has made good use of the original tilling, urinals and cisterns, preserving the 19th-century essence of the space while totally transforming its function. Coffee, breads and pastries all hail from various reputable London sources. Located an eight-minute walk north of Soho, just around the corner from other Fitzrovian coffee hot spot Kaffeine [see entry]. Look for a black and most decorative ground-level entrance, just outside the Crown and Sceptre pub. Gimmicky but serious. Also in Shoreditch and Clerkenwell.
