The Coffee Inquiry XI: Full Stop

Wandering around Brick Lane, showing Roberto and Eliana the area, we decided to do a quick stop for a coffee, and that was a great opportunity to try Full Stop. Nice place, quiet in the hectic Brick Lane environment, simple but comfy sofas, couple tables, old photographs, the place was originally an antique shop, now a coffee bar that looks like the house of an old relative, great music, and they have live music some days. Offering goes around coffee, croissants, sandwiches, sweet treats, ales by Redchurch brewery, and even wine. 

Brick Lane
The place
Got to the place order my typical macchiato, we share a muffin, and we sat down to chat for hours, the place is so relaxing that the time goes by and you don’t realise it. Coffee from Square Mile, nice as usual, latte art in its beginnings. 

Counter
Figuring out what was that? go to the left sign?
Espresso Machine: La Marzocco 
Beans: Square Mile

Nice coffee, relaxing environment, friendly service, an the music is great.

Maybe a Corazon Partio?
Menu
Stop reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Fire” 

Kramer: Oh, yeah! You gave her a taste of medicine, al right 
Jerry: Well, I didn't want her to have an accident 
George: What accident? 
Kramer: Well, after he heckled Toby, she got so upset, she ran out of the building and a street sweeper ran over her foot and severed her pinkie toe 
George: That's unbelievable! 
Kramer: Yeah! Then after the ambulance left, I found the toe! So I put it in a Cracker Jack box, filled it with ice, and took off for the hospital 
George: You ran? 
Kramer: No, I jumped on the bus. I told the driver, I got a toe here, buddy step on it 
George: Holy cow! 
Kramer: Yeah, yeah, then all of a sudden, this guy pulls out a gun. Well, I knew any delay is going to cost her pinkie toe, so I got out of the seat and I started walking towards him. He says, Where do you think you're going, Cracker Jack? I said, Well, I got a little prize for you, buddy knocked him out cold 
George: How could you do that? 
Kramer: Then everybody is screaming, because the driver, he's passed out from all the commotion the bus is out of control! So, I grab him by the collar, I take him out of the seat, I get behind the wheel and now I'm driving the bus 
George: You're Batman 
Kramer: Yeah, yeah, I am Batman. Then the mugger, he comes to, and he starts choking me! So I'm fighting him off with one hand and I kept driving the bus with the other, you know? Then I managed to open up the door, and I kicked him out the door with my foot, you know at the next stop 
Jerry: You kept making all the stops? 
Kramer: Well, people kept ringing the bell 
George: Well, what about the toe? What happened to the toe? 
Kramer: Well! I am happy to say that the little guy is back in place at the end of the line. 
George: You did all this for a pinkie toe?
Kramer: Well, it's a valuable appendage
