Warehouse

October 21, 2018

I vised Warehouse last year. Service terrible, coffee awful.

I passed Taf on my way to an autonomous farmers market in Exarchia Square. I looked forward to a coffee on my return but sadly closed.

As Warehouse was nearby I decided to revisit.

Warehouse is more of a wine bar serving coffee than a coffee shop. In the cellar a couple of hundred different wines, wine by the bottle or glass, plus food.

Water was brought as soon as I found a table.  This is the norm in top coffee shops in Athens.

Curious, did they serve craft beer? Yes a choice of three, I chose one from northern Greece, one I had tried at Little Tree a few days earlier, the other from US I wasn’t interested in.

It is one of life’s ironies more likely to get a craft beer in a Greek coffee shop than a failing English pub.

What I had was excellent, reminiscent of Punk IPA.

What I did not like, strongly flavoured savories to accompany.

I then decided on a cappuccino. A choice of Ethiopian or Guatemalan. I chose the Guatemalan.

It was far better than what I had on my last visit. But not as good as the best coffee shops in Athens have to offer.

Service had improved since my last visit, but still not great.

I was there all afternoon until it got dark, chatting to a pleasant young English couple. Then,  and there is a first for everything, asked to vacate the table as booked.

We then walked in the direction of The Acropolis, through Monastiraki to Plaka.

Warehouse Speciality Blends

November 2, 2017

Quite a trek to find, and no it was not worth the effort.

More a trendy bar serving coffee than a coffee shop.

Service apalling.

A very long wait to be served. Had I not shouted at the waitress, I would still be waiting.

I would have walked out, the only reason I did not was, it would have been an entirely wasted trek to find.

And was the coffee worth the wait when It finally came? Sadly not.

Something like a third to half foam. On the top cold.

I was asked by the barista how was it? I replied not good.

They used to use Sapid coffee, now from their own roastery Wisecup.
