Scooter Caffé is that place.
Situated in Lower Marsh, by the Waterloo tube, this hipster hang-out is found in the most unlikely of places. There isn't even a sign on the door!
The walls are adorned with vintage paper, fairy lights, signs and beat-up vespers.
The wooden boards just yawn 'cool'.
The little tables are so small you are guaranteed a good game of footsie.
Upstairs is a great place to get a big group of friends and hang out. The bar is always chokka with people (so get there early if you need to secure a seat)
In the day the working freelancers come out in force, so expect to bond with a bespectacled gentleman working in digital over a caffe latte.
Me and Sarah visited for a little housemate date night. Scooter Caffé only sells booze and coffee, so you get to bring your own dinner! (as long as you take it away of course)
We opted for Thai from down the road.
