Doing work at a coffee shop is harder than it looks. There are the impatient glares you receive from baristas when you only order a small coffee and sit for three hours, and the large (loud) families chomping on pastries. But London thinks it has found the solution to that problem. Welcome to SL28, London’s first members-only third wave coffee shop, according to a feature on Sprudge.
The café is located inside Net.Works., a co-working space in Holloway, and you have to be a member of that space to have access to the coffee shop. But it really isn’t that bad: for £10 ($14.90 USD) per month, you can skip the Starbucks lines and work all day in the space if you’d like. Plus, with your membership, you get three free coffees per month, which isn’t a bad deal, if you ask us. We just wish SL28 would open stateside. The space itself is modern, well-lit, and features scattered books and unique seating. It’s like a cross between a Williamsburg restaurant and a Silicon Valley break room.
If you work at Net.Works., you may find yourself wanting to take advantage of the unlimited £5 batch brew ($7.43 USD), which allows you unlimited access to black coffee all day. There’s also a selection of baked goods from Aux Pains de Papy available for purchase.
