Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Coffee Angel has offered good coffee, tasty lunches and tempting cakes for a decade and remains popular with walkers, nearby workers and residents from the surrounding flats. The upper part of the split-level space is dominated by the counter, fridge and wall-mounted menu. Sandwiches, wraps and panini plus salads and daily changing soups feed regulars at lunch time, while those with more time can sit at stools beside the window or enjoy a more relaxed vibe in the lower area which features hard-backed chairs and comfy sofas, while outside tables are ideal for chilling and watching the world go by.
