Eating & Drinking Guide

It would be very easy to walk past Peña without realising what you have missed, although it would be a deep shame to do so, as the compact cabin-like café that sits tucked inconspicuously down Eton Lane is an unlikely yet charming coffee spot. For the most part Peña focus their considerable energies on two principal areas – coffee and toasties. The hot sandwich varieties range from the traditional such as the Big Cheese, with red onion added to the obvious main ingredient, to the slightly more sophisticated such as the Aubi One with feta, aubergine, coriander and lemon hummus, to the surprising with the Banana Man mixing bananas with peanut butter and nutella. If you like your cafés low key and quirky, with excellent coffee, then a visit to Peña is a must.
