I dropped in at random for a quick lunch mainly for a change from the usual larger coffee and snack chains that dominate. Range of available stuff to eat was a bit limited as it was 2ish but what I had was OK and speedily grilled. Service was friendly, coffee was fine. Not busy. Unexceptional but pleasant enough.

I love Apostrophes tasty soups, interesting sandwiches, baked goods and their coffee is also quite decent. Stands out from the many competitors.

I've been having porridge every day and it's way too watery. Today it's like a soup with some oats. Ridiculous. From now on I will go to Pret.

nice little coffee shop. lovely selection of muffins. I chose the rhubarb and walnut and it was lovely. good selection of hot and cold drinks. my young niece got a mixed berry smoothie which looked and tasted great. customers seemed to be a mix of business types and tourists.

This place is the closest coffee joint to my flat, so I'm often tempted to go here. And while I generally like their coffee and find the food quite nice, I've been noticing quite a few flaws. The sandwiches are really weird. I'm not a picky person, and I also like to try new things but the kinds of sandwiches... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Shoreditch
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbour can result in fascinating outcomes.
