London Road has had a bit of a revival over the last year or so, with many quality coffee houses opening within the last year. One of the hidden gems of the area is Phoenix Coffee House, serving locally roasted beans from Lazy Dog Coffee Roasters. We tried their Mellow Lazy Dog Blend, containing a mix of Mexican Finca La Laja and a Peruvian SHG, which was initially chocolatey making way for a nutty aftertaste, with a smooth, balanced mouthfeel.
Phoenix Coffee House has a rustic, retro feel, with old video game consoles sitting atop vintage wooden furniture. As we entered there was a couple playing Tony Hawk’s on the PS2 and the owner Martin was busy making homemade sausage rolls behind the counter. As well as the homemade cakes and snacks, freshly made sandwiches, wraps, and baguettes are available.
If you have a love for coffee, homemade food, and great games, Phoenix Coffee House is a must visit.
