Workshop Coffee - Holborn Coffeebar

Workshop Coffee’s 1,200 square foot Holborn outlet is located on the ground floor of Amazon’s headquarters. A horseshoe-shaped marble bar takes centre stage, offering a range of filter coffees either brewed to order or batch brewed using its specialist kit. The coffee shop features a sliding lattice-work wall, which can be closed through the centre of the bar to divide the space into a stand up coffee bar and seated area for event room hire.
