The Espresso RoomA small but perfectly formed independent coffee shop, The Espresso Room has just got room enough to house coffee, tea, sandwiches, cakes and whole beans by the bag as well as seating for a few - maybe four - customers. Across the road from Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children this is a welcome place to stop (especially if you're working the late shift) for on-the-go coffee. British owner Ben Townsend has set up this artisan coffee shop to bring the people of Bloomsbury a delicious cup of coffee using beans by Square Mile, the barista's supplier of choice, made using La Marzocco - the rolls royce of espresso machines. Whole beans sold by the bag are supplied by Has Bean and Square Mile, and tea - posh and builders - is also available. On the food menu they have sandwiches substantial enough for lunch - the ham and mustard roll is good - and a selection of cakes, muffins and meringues for those of a sweet tooth.
