Allpress Roastery

We woke up this Bank Holiday Monday with a craving for some tasty bruncheon eating. First we tried Hurwundeki- the antique shop come coffee shop underneath Cambridge Heath station- unfortunately there were no croissants on offer, only average looking sandwiches. So we went on a wander ending up in Shoreditch by which point we were getting desperate. Settling on a smart little cafe called Allpress Roastery which was bustling with people, we did not know what to expect!

Inside there is a selection of about eight different types of coffee, a large coffee roaster and thankfully various breakfast options from soft boiled eggs to filled croissants. By this time we were pretty ravenous so went for two of the larger options- smoked salmon with cream cheese on toast and a "mixed breakfast plate", alongwith an americano and flat white.

The smoked salmon and cream cheese was served on tasty bread with chopped chives, a large lemon segment and a piece of gherkin- all in all a nice way to start the day!

The "mixed breakfast plate" consisted of cured ham, avocado, tomato, provolone cheese, a hard boiled egg and some toast. It was a simple dish but all of the ingredients used were top notch and it came together in a simple Germanic kind of a way.

Tasty coffees and a simple, but delicious, breakfast made for a great start to a relaxing bank holiday- I would recommend it!
