Foursquare Tips

  • Have a flat white on the Victorian porcelain urinals. Coffee beans are from Caravan, free Wifi included.
  • The Attendant is a coffee shop in a Victorian-era ex-public toilet. Also, the coffee runs right through you, so you soon find yourself eyeing your "booth" with different intentions.
  • A repurposed Victorian toilet, with delicious coffee and food. What's there not to love?
  • There is no toilet :)
  • Ironically there are no bathroom facilities here!
  • Attendant occupies Londons most original location for a coffee bar: a late-nineteenth-century gents toilet. I'll Just have to resist making puns, it'll piss you off.
  • Thank goodness public toilets are now obsolete! Only Victorians needed to eliminate waste.
  • One does not simply come here for coffee...nor the urinal tables. But for the ridiculously amazing French Toast!
  • There were 4 types of brownie when I last went: salted caramel, marshmallow, cookie dough, peanut butter & Oreo! (I thought that might convince you of the coffee and location didn't)
  • Get the breakfast muffin with maple cured bacon, Swiss cheese, egg & spinach
  • Victorian public toilet turn coffee shop. An amazing soundtrack and friendliest of staff. They serve organic milk and soya is also available. Only about a 15 minute walk to Regent's Park or Oxford St.
  • Have a flat white on urinal seats... life can't get any better than this! A must visit cafe in London..
  • Wins hands down purely on its quirkiness. Former public toilet transformed into a wonderful little cafe. Settle into an old urinal with a well made coffee (from Caravan) or sit outside & ring the bell
  • Pulled Pork and Fennel salad in a brioche bun, with a mac and cheese side? And in a converted urinal? You don't need to ask me twice.
  • A Victorian toilet converted into a coffee shop. Very cool indeed. Bigger and quieter than you might expect. Great spot to work. The hot chocolate and chai lattes are epic!
  • Affogato is excellent on a warm day. I don't think they have toilets here!!
  • This is a pearl among London's coffee spots. Top quality, top taste, top service, unique atmosphere.
  • Mentioned in NYTimes: Underground London
  • The most unique location for a cafe I've ever seen- in an underground Victorian public bathroom. Really quaint decoration and excellent food + coffee
  • Great place. Located in an old victorian toilet. If you're near the place, go there. Not easy to find as it is downstairs.
