Caffé Fresco


Restaurants & Cafés


There's little to suggest from the outside that Caffé Fresco means business; even the aroma of roasting coffee beans is masked by the more assertive odours wafting from the curry shop next door. This unprepossessing cafe opened eight years ago and has been getting increasingly serious about its coffee ever since: the interior is cluttered with caffeine clobber, including a splendid bright yellow La Marzocco espresso machine. There are scones and milky drinks to placate customers in search of somewhere to idle away the afternoon, but the owner also pulls a mean shot of espresso, and is constantly varying the beans he uses, making repeat trips virtually inevitable. Very respectable lattes, too.
