SquareMeal Review of Fazenda UK

Fazenda is the Portuguese word for a farm or factory specialising in the business of coffee (from plant to sack), although this Spitalfields drop-in is actually the London offspring of a family business based in Italy. Wood roasting is the name of the game, with sacks of beans arrayed around the floors and shelves of the bare-boarded, turquoise-walled premises: sample a punchy ‘robusta’ or more delicate ‘arabica’ from consignments grown in the Ivory Coast, Costa Rica, Honduras, Colombia, Brazil and elsewhere. To accompany your chosen brew, Fazenda offers a spread of mostly ready-made, deli-style dishes – soups, pasta, salads – plus some moreish cakes and pastries. Downstairs is a bijou basement space given over to displays of cool contemporary art, or you can chill at one of the seats outside, steaming cup in hand.
