Review: Kin Cafe, Fitzrovia

Looking like a high-end Japanese restaurant, Kin is actually a pretty cool café based on Foley Street just down from another excellent café, The Attendant. This area has a number of cool eateries with lots of al fresco seating.

Coffee – 5/5

Great coffee at a decent price. Lovely deep flavours and a smooth foam. It was a good size and the perfect temperature. It serves a number of roasts include Notes and Round Hill.

Atmosphere – 4/5

Lots of greys, whites and pale woods give it a Zen vibe. Very laid back and calming. Around the front and outside on the street are small table while at the back, under a sky light, are larger tables. It could do with a few softer edges, but I’d be happy to spend an afternoon chilling out there.

Food – 3/4

The usual selections but tasty and fresh looking. Sandwiches included soya marinated tofu with aubergine in chilli syrup, while there was also a number of tasty fritatas and salads to choose from. It was a bit pricey at £5.50 for sandwich and lunch salad boxes from £4.50 to £6.50.

Service – 3/3

Great service. A perfectly made coffee delivered with a smile to my table.

Extras – 0/3

None to speak of. The website doesn’t hint at anything either.

Summary – 15/20

A great cafe serving top notch coffee and healthy and interesting lunches.
