Square Meal Review of Attendant ?

‘Hidden espresso bar in abandoned toilet’ is quite a PR headline, but that’s what caffeine-loving visitors can expect at Attendant – a cannily converted, Victorian gentleman’s convenience in the heart of Fitzrovia. The old Doulton porcelain urinals have been plugged and reformed as a line of seats, while the original attendant’s office is now a tiny kitchen dispensing Gloucester Old Spot bacon sarnies for breakfast along with hearty 20oz granola tubs, juices and cakes from Bittersweet Bakers. Lunchtime callers can tuck into sweet things and NYC deli-inspired sandwiches (sliced and sold by weight) plus a choice of no-mayo coleslaw, German potato salad, homemade pickles or fresh farm greens, to go with various coffees (made with hand-roasted beans from Caravan in King’s Cross). Takeaways and teas too.

    Dips Dines :: Attendant - Quirky Coffee | Dips Dines

    The Attendant has got to be one of London’s most unique & quirky coffee shops – it’s located in a basement Victorian men’s public lavatory in Fitzrovia. Drinking coffee in and old loo – sounds a bit gross i know, but it really isn’t once you get inside. If i’m not convincing enough, it was also voted runner up Best Coffee Shop in London 2013.

    It’s pretty tiny inside and can get hot & crowded, so my recommendation is to go along, enjoy the novelty factor and grab a takeaway coffee. If it’s a nice day, try and grab a seat on the benches outside at the top of the stairs...
