Went for Saturday Brunch with my wife, daughters and their gran and Workshop Coffee catered admirably for all our needs, in a stylish setting. Tasty food, very good coffee and the hot chocolate worthy of a special mention too. Friendly staff were generally attentive. 93 year old Granny definitely enjoyed the vibe and left feeling like the Oldest Hipster in... More

Whilst we were in the Farringdon area, we popped to Workshop Coffee for a little coffee break. As we entered, we were delighted with the pretty interiors and friendly baristas. This place is super cool and I'd actually like to go back for brunch at some point. Any who, I highly recommend the mint tea, it's so refreshing and a... More

The Atmosphere is better than most London cafe's: quieter, a large table upstairs to work on. The coffee is fairly good despite the annoying habit of warming your cup with some of the coffee (the whole point of a preheated cup is to keep the coffee warm, using the coffee defeats the purpose... use hot water and pour it out!)....

Nice breakfast, good brewed coffee to share, attentive staff, cool vibe... but surprisingly no internet, and the reception is quite bad too, so don't go if you need internet connection for your meet. Otherwise very good!

For those liking coffee this is a great place. For some of us who prefer tea or juice, this is still a great choice as the food is well done and service is very good. Great place for breakfast and to meet up with friends.

Lovely decor and digging the foliage wall First thing I ordered was a latte at the front. I sat down and waited, the place was not busy, while looking at the menu I had been asked 3 times by different employees in the space of minutes if I wanted to order something I ordered green fritter which was warm &...

Discovered this little gem when looking for a breakfast place on Sunday morning in Clerkenwell area. It has been done up to a nice standard and what a great breakfast. Thoroughly enjoyed it. All the waiters were super friendly. It was slightly more expensive tough which is the only reason why I didn’t give it full marks.

We were staying at the Zetter Townhouse and visited the Workshop Coffee for breakfast on both mornings. All very good quality and reasonably priced, great service from friendly staff. A 'cool' place to be with a lovely relaxed vibe.

The venue ambiance is remarkable. Very friendly place and kind waiters. The coffee shop roast and grind their beans freshly. The original batches are awesome. However the food selection can be better and there is NO wifi in the premise !!!

Thank memsogan

In April 2011 we opened our doors on Clerkenwell Road, intent on bringing to the neighbourhood the very best coffee possible. Sourcing, roasting and brewing great coffee lead to more, and since then, our Clerkenwell cafe has evolved into a thriving destination for coffee, food, beer and wine lovers alike.

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighbourhood Profile
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.
