69 Long Lane
Date of Last Visit: Friday, February 20th, 2009
The Victim: Me
The Damage: £2
The Background: In the space of 24 hours, two separate people asked me if I had been to Dose yet. I hadn't! And I wasn't sure how I had missed the opening of London's latest and greatest little coffee bar. So I headed over before work one morning a few weeks ago.
The Entrance: Dose is right next to Kipferl, the Austrian coffee and cake shop, which I wonder about. Kipferl did it's own little trade in coffee. Their coffee was okay. Better still was their cake. But it was expensive cake.
Dose is more about the coffee, although they do have nice looking sandwiches too. Which they make on premises as opposed to buying in.
The Coffee: Square Mile. Only my absolute favorite decaf ever.
The Latte: Great.
The Service: Chatty. Friendly. Like it should be.
The Verdict: I like it here. Free wifi too. Small though. So while I'd hang around for 30 minutes or so with my laptop, I'm not quite sure if I'd hang around for longer.
