“Love the coffee, love the atmos, love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

This is the only place you can get a decent coffee and there's space to gaze out at the street and people-watch. Some reviews have said the staff are not friendly - I couldn't disagree more. I'm not particularly "hip" but I'm alwazys greeted with a smile. And, most vital of all, they make AMAZING coffee QUICKLY!!! So you don't have to stand around for hours like in some places. Brilliant place, highly recommend.

“Great take out coffee...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

Great independent Coffee shop, it's sister store is a stone throw away on Whitecross street.

Lovely smooth tasting flat whites and a great hot chocolate too.

Price is a tad steep if you ask me and while I like the interiors low-fi look and feel I rarley sit in due to the crowds of Hoxton grumpy trendies. The place quickly turns into an 'Apple off' with so many versions of MacBooks strewn over the tables and their new wave owners avoiding any eye contact with others as they may need to be polite and make some space or they're hiding deep envy of someone's more advanced spec.

This place ain't for the PC!

When its quiet its nice.

“Fantastic place for coffee & people watching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

I've worked round the corner on Great Eastern Street for 5 or 6 years now, and it's brilliant that there are finally places like Fix 126 opening up serving decent coffee in nice surroundings. Perfect for meetings, but also ideal for lounging around with friends. Staff are friendly and while it's not greasy-spoon cheap, it's certainly no more expensive than your average coffee place in central London.
