17 Berwick Street
Date of Last Visit: Saturday, 8 November 2008
The Victim: Me
The Damage: £2.20
The Background: Another day, another decaf. After my Nude post last week and the unanimous follow up comments, it was time to visit Flat White. Why I didn't visit these places when I was drinking six cups of coffee (the caffeinated kind) per day, I don't know.
The only problem is that Flat White is PACKED. It should be; it's pouring rain out. So there will be no leisurely sipping indoors, where it's warm, for me. Take-away it is.
The Coffee: One decaf flat-white to go and boy is it good. It's good like Nude. So I wonder if they use Monmouth too. The place is so crowded and hectic while I'm there that I don't have a chance to ask.
Operational Efficiency: I placed my order at the register in the middle of the store. People started queueing up behind me. Then, I had to turn around to walk to the front of the shop to pick up my coffee. Between all the people waiting behind me and the tables against the wall, it was a bit tight. Maybe they could rethink this?
The Verdict: I like the product. I'd go at an off time so I can enjoy it more.
