Fabrique, WC2H 9RY

Swedish bakery and coffee shop in Covent Garden, opened in September 2015. There is another branch under the railway arches near Hoxton Overground station.

It's quite small inside, with 6 small tables along one side. Decor is modern/industrial, with tiled walls and exposed lightbulbs. Behind the counter are shelves with appealing-looking loaves of freshly baked bread.

Kat bought a takeaway latte (£2.75) and pain au chocolate (£2.50) on a Tuesday morning in December 2015. A couple of ready-made sandwiches were also available, presumably more are on offer at lunchtimes. There was no queue and only one customer sat at a table. Service was quick and friendly. The coffee was slightly larger and much stronger than the Pret equivalent, and 60p more expensive. The pastry was unusually salty — not sure if this was the intended result.

Kat's verdict: It's a nice enough space but a little on the expensive side.

Accessibility: Step-free to get in. Didn't check the toilets.
