Drink, Shop, Do

At the King Cross end of ‘the Cally’, you are invited to DRINK; from a choice of teas, wines and cocktails; SHOP for quirky retro treasures; and DO a range of crafty courses.

The cafe space is bright and airy – the former chill-out zone of a Victorian Turkish bathhouse – with a lovely skylight. The furnishings (all for sale) are a delightful and colourful hotch-potch of junk shop finds – 1950’s formica and grandma’s best china. The atmosphere is warm and informal. Girly but not prissy, art school-cool but not pretentious.

The choice of tea at Drink Shop & Do is impressive. I counted 28, with seven types of green tea alone. Prices from £2, to £3.80 for the ‘Green Maharani with Saffron and Papaya’.
Faced with all this exotica, I had a fancy for a nice pot of Yorkshire tea (the only tea bag on menu). This was very fine and refreshing cup of tea, which ‘hit the spot’ in a most pleasing way.

I visited at lunch time, so had a (melt-in-the-mouth) cream cheese and cucumber sandwich, lovely and fresh, on white sliced bread with the crusts cut off. There are various versions of afternoon teas on offer, from £18 per person. There is even one for the fellas featuring a pint of ale, scotch egg, pork pie and a Yorkie bar.

A gem!
