As the name hints, Attendant is in a (disused) Victorian (men’s) public lavatory on London’s Foley Street. If that sounds weird, it is, and yet it’s also genius. The great thing about Attendant is that it’s kept most of the original fittings, incorporating them into the design. The result is a quirky, unique place.
For some, that would have been enough, relying on the gimmick alone to draw in the punters. Not, however, Attendant, which produces some fine coffee, up there with the best of them. It also offers a wide range of sandwiches and cakes, with an emphasis on quality and local produce.
Attendant is pretty small and, when I was there, it was very busy. However, a high staff-to-customer ratio, with a minimum three staff on duty during my visit, meant that everything was handled very smoothly. Ironically, for a café in an ex-public lavatory, there’s no toilet!
