Coffee geeks rejoice! Continuing his course of upward trajectory, Gwilym Davies has opened Prufrock Coffee on Leather Lane. Davies’ coffee sales have known several locales, first a roving cart, then a shiny trolley inside the storefront of Present in Shorditch, and now, a proper cafe not far from the Chancery Lane and Farringdon tube stations. I got the good news yesterday when I stopped by Prufrock in Present for a quick espresso. The barista informed me of the new shop, where the menu will eventually feature siphon pot and filter coffee. At the moment, the new Prufrock is just doing take away, but things should be in full swing shortly.
Update: I stopped by at 7pm on Monday evening and this is what I saw. The space, a single room with a big glass storefront, was still in the process of being set up. I ducked under the gate and knocked on the window to ask about the opening schedule and was told the shop is open from 8-5. Doh!
