Attendant Converted Public Toilet Cafe London

The jury’s still out on this one.  Would you eat your coffee and cake in a converted mens public toilet?  Attendant in Fitzrovia, London was once a 19th-century public bathroom complete with porcelain Victorian urinals.  After laying dormant for fifty years Ben Russell and Pete Tomlinson transformed it into a cool cafe selling sandwiches, salads, soups, coffee, tea and cakes.  Grab an Espresso at The Attendant, Downstairs, 27a Foley Street, London W1W 6DY.

  1. Oh the jury should not be out! This is a great little place, despite its former purpose. Nice bits to eat and they serve their own roasted coffee which is great. I find quite a good place to escape to when wanting a few moments peace.
