27 Exmouth Market
Tel: 020 7833 9757
Date of Last Visit: Saturday, October 18, 2008
The Victim: Me
The Damage: £1.80
The Background: I decided to go for a walk around the neighbo(u)rhood. I feel like I haven’t been around town in ages. By the time I got to Exmouth Market, I was ready to stop for a bit. So I checked out Brill, which a reader had recommended to me ages ago. (Reader, if you’re out there, we still need to do that coffee.)
The Entrance: Brill is a CD shop and immediately, I’m sad for them. Because me, me who has more CDs than anyone I know except for my friend Alex, has stopped buying CDs. I’m totally digital now. But they have coffee and bagels too, plus free wireless. So I’m kinda intrigued.
The Drink: I order my second decaf latte of the day and it’s served with a smile. And it’s a VERY GOOD decaf latte. I think they must use Monmouth. It is so noticeably better than the decaf latte I just had at Comptoir Gascon. I leave, and keep walking.
The Verdict: Support the guy.
