A right royal cuppa… I thought it only appropriate to share a royal review this jubilee weekend.
HR Higgins has the Queen among his customers (it’s true). This little place is a real gem, just off Oxford street, it’s like stepping back in time. You get a real cup of coffee (a real brewed cup of coffee in a china cup .. there’s also a free refil!) .
Their focus is the supply of coffee but downstairs they have a cute little ‘tea room’ – yes they do quality tea, ohhh and of course some quality cake.
They know their coffee too, they’ve been doing it for many years, they’ve been at it longer than the queen – celebrating 70 years in business this year (20111)!! Handed down through the generations, a proper family business. Other than a quality cup of coffee and a wealth of knowledge they have some great pics pieces from coffee history in the coffee shop down stairs.
I so recommend a visit to this little place, well if it’s good enough for the queen…
