I’d visited Project Coffee on many occasions but only for coffee, with which I’d always been impressed. In the same ownership as Wellington, Kilimanjaro and Press, I think this is the home of the best espresso from that crop of outstanding coffee places.

They have a nice selection of breakfast items so I was pleased to be visiting on a bright morning that had just the hint of a chill in the air.



The interior is very stylishly appointed. Copper-topped tables are surrounded by classic straight-backed chairs in various styles. A couple of leather sofas provide reclining comfort.

I was tempted by scrambled eggs, but second guessed myself on the basis of the version I’d had at nearby Salt that just wasn’t to my taste. I opted for a simple haggis and bacon roll, instead.



This arrived promptly, delivered by one of the efficient staff members.

It proved to be a very good item. The fresh morning roll had good substance to it. The haggis was particularly tasty and the plentiful bacon provided a satisfyingly salty kick.

I verified that their espresso was still on top form, then was soon on my way, fortified for the day ahead.

So overall, I thought Project Coffee was doing very good work. I’d happily return to try something else from their menu and I continue to rate their coffee very highly. I’d recommend you pay it a visit, soon.
