When I was last In Farnham some weeks ago, I noticed two new coffee shops in Downing Street. I looked in, but that was as far as I got, no time for a coffee. I did though notice they were both very busy. Next time, try the coffee.
Saturday I was in Farnham by early afternoon.
I decided to try Krema, the grey looking one, formerly a tea shop.
Stripped to bare brick walls, chalk boards, cakes (though no cookies), solid wooden tables, old school chairs, a little crowded, coffee sourced from Horsham coffee roasters, bags of coffee for sale, even showed roast date.
I ordered a cappuccino. Freshly ground, not scalding hot. No problem with the coffee. Not gold standard, but certainly good.
The soup, pea and spinach and mint, was excellent. Generous portion size.
A very twee toilet.
The one thing I did not like, the so-called artisan bread served with the soup. Far better bread can be had than this.
The barista was a bit miserable, could do with lightening up a bit, and be pleased people are taking an interest in the coffee.
It is difficult to see why anyone drinks the undrinkable coffee in Costa, Caffe Nero or tax-dodging Starbucks, when excellent coffee is served in Krema.
