“Inviting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

I have been wanting to call into this coffee shop for a while as I have walked past it quite a few times and it always looks so inviting. We went there today and it was indeed warm and cosy on a very cold day. I like the decor and the trendy American feel to the place. It reminded me of the sort of trendy coffee shop you would find in somewhere like Seattle (not Starbucks though)! However, I had to remove the previous occupiers`s cup and water glass from our table before we could sit down as nobody had done that. The coffee was good - but warm. Not nearly hot enough. When the server brought our coffee, I noticed the previous occupier`s tea pot was also still on our table. He made no effort to remove it and I had to hand it to him to take away. Probably a great start to a new place, but they need to keep on the ball and not let standards slip.

“No doubt the BEST coffee in Twickenham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Once you had tasted the coffee prepared by the Harris+Hoole baristas, you'll never want to drink the coffee at the likes of Starbucks, Costa Coffee or Caffe Nero. Harris+Hoole are passionate about their coffee and it shows (and you can taste the difference).

They also offer a nice assortment of baked treats like cupcakes and tarts as well as paninis and smaller snacks.

Wish they had a few more of those comfy sofas. Nice with free WiFi.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Lovely atmosphere where you can relax. Good selection of snacks and the staff are friendly. Doesn't feel like a chain.

“Brand new "artisan" coffee shop in Twickenham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

You might think Twickenham has enough coffee shops, but given they are always busy I believe there is room for another, especially one with such high standards and "love of all things coffee!"
The first Saturday brought families out in droves and if their experience was as mine then they will not have found Hoole+Harris lacking.
There was a warm welcome with very personal attention, understandable on my first visit at 7am but carried through to the late morning visit, when Mandeep, the manager, greeted me as a long lost friend!
The coffee was excellent and the food being served looked very good, with the chocolate tart to die for. I know from personal experience!
The decor is very attractive and on speaking with Mandeep I learned that it is courtesy of Mr Sainsbury (pre supermarkets). The shopfitters uncovered original Sainsbury tiles which they have restored adding class to this lovely venue. Go and have a look you won't be disappointed.
