About Attendant

SquareMeal Review

‘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.

I have been walking passed Attendant for months without being quite sure what was down there, under the road. What a mistake. Although small the food and drinks are excellent and the location – a converted public toilet – is unique, interesting and if not charming then certainly full of character. Well worth a visit.

I was heading for another great local coffee shop, but couldn't resist checking out the contents of the intriguing exterior. My adventure was well rewarded with excellent espresso, friendly and attentive service all wrapped up in a quirky venue. I'll be back…
