Coffee Shots - Notes Music & Coffee sounds like decent coffee in Central London
Who would have thought a smart, quiet and aesthetically pleasing space could exist just minutes away from the roaming European tourist hoards of Leicester and Trafalgar Squares. Even more shocking, who would have thought that at this place there would be decent coffee available at a fair price? Welcome to Notes, Music & Coffee
A novel idea for a cafe, Notes uses its well designed interior as a retail space for DVD's, CD's and sheet music whilst serving up top class coffee (Square Mile). Like all good coffee places in London, there is a distinctly antipodean feeling about the whole place, there is a quiet buzz and good vibe about the place which can keep one there for hours, oblivious to the jostle and hustle of the streets of London.
The menu is diverse enough so that European customers can find their regular brew, cortardo's sit alongside piccolo's and flat whites. We found the barista's to be knowledgeable but humble people with a steak of nerdiness about them (I spotted a syphon coffee being prepared for another customer).
The food looked tasty although I didn't have the time to sample any, i'd happily return at a later date to do so.
