The Coffee Inquiry VII: Notes - Covent Garden

Two locations in London, opened in November 2010, with a concept of music, films, food, and of course coffee. Similar to other coffee shops their menu is simple, pastries, muffins, sweet treats, sandwiches, salads, and a bit more complex at night. You have also option to have a glass of wine or a beer. In Notes you will find a mix between trained baristas, selected beans, and the necessary equipment including a reverse osmosis water flittering system to provide top quality in their coffees.

Number 36
Sweet treats
Simple décor, wood tables, Spuntino style lamps, relax yet simple atmosphere. Ordered a macchiato and a banana bread. Nice coffee strong as expected from a Square Mile house blend, nice latte art detail. The banana bread great, it’s difficult to go wrong with it.

A different kind of note reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Note” 

Jerry: I told you
George: Told me what?
Jerry: I told you we shouldn't do it
George: He didn't say anything
Jerry: He's got a house, a family, they could take away his license. You should have heard him. Three notes, how stupid was that? We never should have got three notes
Elaine: Three notes?
Jerry: Yeah, you, me and George
Elaine: You got me a note?
Jerry: Yeah
Elaine: But I got my own note
Jerry: You what?
Elaine: I got a note from my gynaecologist
Jerry: Why'd you do that?
Elaine: I didn't know you were getting me a note
Jerry: Of course I was getting you a note
Elaine: But you didn't say anything
Jerry: Neither did you, that's how he got caught. We sent in four notes from two doctors
Kramer: How can you do that to your friend? He's got a wife, kids, and a lot of other stuff. Oh, yeah
