Raw Espresso Bar

So people have left countries, people have moved flats, some have been on holiday and some have injured themselves, but once everything settled down, we were all able to meet up for a long-awaited coffee hood.

In my new hood, I spotted Raw Espresso Bar. I want to say it's a little hole-in-the-wall but that conjures up images of dodgy bars with sticky floors and decades-old music which I secretly love but it doesn't do the place justice. It's tucked away on a side street and if you got your blinders on you'd miss it. And you'd be sorry.

Raw is a nice and simple coffee shop. But that is not a bad thing. It's got comfy chairs, it's got tables for intimate dates and a counter where we spotted the early-morning work crowd. We're mostly the don't-want-to-go-to-work crowd so we parked off in the comfy chairs and ordered our coffees.

Service was very friendly and quick which is my favourite. Coffee was courtesy of Deluxe which means it was a winner. The boys had some breakfast and I was very jealous as I watched them tucking into pastries and rolls (trying to be good and work on that summer body).

If you want no-frills, unpretentious coffee with a chilled setting, then this is your place.
Go and check them out at Spin Street. They're open from 06h30 until 16h00.

Ex-Oh! Ex-Oh!
