I’ve fallen in love all over again.
This time with a latte.
No I’m not turning into a Tracey eminent wannabe. I won’t be marrying myself off to a latte mug or coffee machine. But the coffee at my new fave spot almost has no words to describe it.
The place being … Covent Garden Grind.
It’s not been open long, nestled in the back street of Covent Garden along Maiden Lane. It’s beautiful from the outside on a chilly sunny morning. I love the cobbled paths which pave the way along some of Londons hidden routes.
I popped along recently when they were offering a free coffee on a Friday morning – a treat to draw you in. After all, Everyone could do with a free coffee on a Friday to help get through the last day of the week.
The interior was really fresh, contemporary and inviting too.
Tempted by the breakfast and treats too, leaving with just my trusty skinny latte was a mission. Self control well tested.
The grind team were super friendly and cheerful – a lovely change to some places I’ve been during rush hour. Who needs a moody, stressy barista when they’re trying to go into a day in the most upbeat way.
My latte was incredible. I think it could quite possibly be the best coffee I’ve ever had! Creamy, yet potent, it was well balanced I almost didn’t need sugar – a shock revelation as I’ve never found that with plain lattes. Popping a sugar in my takeaway cup and helping myself to a lid off the side, I was soon on my way. In and out in less than 5mins – perfect for a pre-work stop off.
I’ve since been back for another and I’m planning a pre-work brekkie there soon. I just can’t get enough!
And now you understand why I just had to share my new fave spot with you.
Have you been yet? … What about now?
