Over the past couple of months I have noticed a number of people heaping praise on a non Starbucks place to grab a great cup of java.
The joint in question is Sacred Cafe located at 13 Ganton Street (just off Carnaby Street) in London.
History has it that it was created 4 years ago by two Expats from New Zealand who felt let down in their search for a great coffee experience in the British capital.
To remedy to that Matthew Clark and Tubbs Wanigasekera (the 2 expats in question) offer this statement as to what they stand for:
And we’d certainly had enough of sterile, plastic, homogeneous surroundings that all seemed identical regardless of where we were in London."
Hopefully they will keep their standards as they expand with their latest location at mega-mall Westfield London.
