Square Meal Review of Paper & Cup Shoreditch ?

‘Coffee with a mission’ is the mantra behind this pioneering café-cum-bookshop – a project set up by the charitable Spitalfields Crypt Trust (SCT), which aims to help people recovering from drug and alcohol addiction. Much of the furniture (including the wooden benches outside) has been made by SCT trainees, and the interior is filled with shelves of new and second-hand books as well as exhibits from local artists. Apprentice baristas look after the coffee and other drinks, while their gastro-minded buddies takes care of the food – a commendable mix of savouries, salads, sandwiches (salmon with rocket), home-baked cakes and so forth prepared with ingredients from local suppliers where possible (the bread is made with flour from London’s last remaining independent miller).
