Square Meal Review of Department of Coffee & Social Affairs ?

It may be stuck with a kooky and rather ponderous bureaucratic moniker, but black-fronted DCSA is essentially a new-breed coffee shop set up by a couple of young guys from down under. Once an ironmonger’s, it has been recast and reconfigured as an uncluttered, caffeine-focused social hub supported by local designers and artists (their works are displayed on the café’s bare brick walls). As well as a range of coffees ground from seasonal beans, the drinks list also runs to hand-blended, loose-leaf teas, hot chocolate and juices. If solids are required, there are croissants and bowls of muesli for breakfast, followed by sandwiches, bagels and quiche at lunchtime; during the afternoon, caramel slices, Portuguese tarts and ricciarelli cookies come into their own. You can also hire the Department’s private room for coffee-fuelled meetings around a communal table.
