Two London addresses, both ideal for a break from frantic shopping. Escape the hustle and bustle of Portobello Road, or the sea of fashion outlets in Covent Garden for some guilt-free caffeine replenishment.
From the stylised green logo to the post-Apple minimalist pastel seating, the d?cor is very modern with a real ?chain? feel to it. Progreso want to offer you everything the coffee behemoths can, but all fair-trade.
They?ve got all the nibbles you could want ? cakes, biscuits, mini-pizzas etc ? and serve up hot soups and stews to please the lunchtime crowd. The coffee is first-rate, brewed in an attractive Elektra machine and served in attractive handleless cups with fitted coloured bands to protect your fingers from the heat.
There are only two so far (the other is at Downstairs, Tomas Neal's Centre, 35 Earlham Street, WC2H 9LD. Telephone: 0207 379 3608) but they?re looking to expand and with Progreso?s liking for prime locations and heavily branded interiors, this Oxfam-inspired venture looks to be taking on the big chains at their own game.
