I was in the office with the London team today. Karan took me to one of his favourite coffee haunts near the office “Association Coffee” . A bonus of the location is that its right behind my favourite building, “the Gherkin”. Although, if a building is round, does it really have a font and a back ?. The coffee is great, I’d hazard a guess the its owned or run by Australians or Kiwis given that an order of Vegemite on toast didn’t elicit strange looks and in the cake jar there were a stack of Lamingtons.
After leaving the office tonight, I was determined to find London’s oldest coffee house, the search for which eluded me yesterday. It was starting to sprinkle rain a little but thankfully not like yesterday morning. A few twists and turns down very old and very narrow lanes I eventually found it.
