I feel quite confident that this is the strangest location we’ve visited for coffee. You would be hard-pressed to find a weirder one. If you do, please tell me.
Yes, an underground cafe. But that isn’t what makes it so odd. In fact, this coffee shop had a prior life. As a urinal.
No joke. This location was once a men’s public toilet – a Victorian toilet – but has been converted to a charming (albeit wacky) coffee shop.
It takes serious effort to suppress the urge to use some major potty humor here…
We arrived at Attendant, and my initial fear was that a place such as this would be so focused on its kitchy-ness, it would not be quite as concerned with quality coffee.
But once we received our drinks, my fears subsided. Attendant has excellent coffee. I enjoyed a cortado, while Zack had a fresh-brewed coffee via AeroPress.
