Our friend Reuben is generally very nice...
except when it comes to coffee.
You should have seen the snarl I got when I asked if
he had served instant coffee after we had dinner at their house one night.
The death look was given and noted.
So when he says that a place by our flat has really good coffee,
Well, actually, Tyler listens
and then takes me....
and then I remember that this was the place
that Reuben was talking up so much.
Talkhouse sits on Portobello Road,
at the end of the market.
It's a small coffee shop
that discreetly boasts
that it's barista won 3rd in the
World Latte Art Competition.
(Who knew such existed, right?)
But not only does Talkhouse serve coffee so fancy
that it could make a hipster feel insecure
but the food is top notch.
We reallllly love the St. John's custard donut
and the chocolate chip cookie sprinkled with sea salt.
The lunch options are also really good quality
and amazingly fresh.
If it's nice outside,
snag a seat in the outdoor garden area
at the wayyyyy back of the shop.
(Just keep going, it's there. I promise.)
Enjoy this good, good place.
I know you won't be disappointed.
