Where to Drink It: The Wren

uih4djBk1oCYOeJCSOLbhR18jeMaEYR7RzwBMq6nLrMMany people have remarked that this might be the ‘grandest’ or most interesting space to enjoy speciality coffee in London. There is no denying that when we were approached by the team behind The Wren we were very excited to see their venue. The cafe is part of a St. Nicholas Cole Abbey that lies just South of St. Paul’s Cathedral. In fact, the church and the cathedral were both designed by Sir Christopher Wren - hence the name. 

The high ceilings and tall stained glass windows create an a level of light incomparable with any other coffee shop we know. The open space is great for larger gatherings or just a solitary flat white while admiring the finer details of the stain glass windows. As the summer rolls in the outdoor mezzanine, set away and above from the street, is the one of the best places to watch the bustle of The City of London while you enjoy a Cult of Done espresso or V60 filter brew.
