This brilliant pop-up in – erm – a garage is one of the area’s lesser known gems. Perch in the airy, high-ceilinged space, which spills out onto the pavement, and choose from a well-priced special each day chalked up on the board – say, veg curry on Mondays, fish burgers on Tuesdays or lasagne on Thursdays – as well as artisan coffee, snacks and soups. The smattering of upcycled seating and friendly approach creates a space that feels miles away from traffic-clogged and noisy Euston Road. Lunch is about £5. Open daily, 105A Euston Street, NW1.
Black Sheep join the herd
Started by a group of university flatmates who allegedly quit their jobs on the same day, speciality bean merchants Black Sheep’s mission is to “rid the world of boring, average-tasting coffee”. Fair enough. Their latest opening is in Regent’s Place, and their Coffee Clubs see regulars sign up to Latte Art classes and learn about processing methods, roasting profiles, and latest techniques. Like the ever-expanding (Shoreditch) Grind group, the team aren’t just about coffee, either: their late-night venues are a go-to for punters after bean-inspired cocktails and locally distilled alcohol against an urban setting of house beats and unique graffiti.
