420C NEW NORTH RD, KINGSLAND
Pioneering roastery cafe Atomic got a makeover this year: impressive brass fittings have taken the place a little more upmarket. They’ve also got a takeout window, for those in a hurry to catch the bus. Still with the sunny morning seats out front, the roomy interior that’s so good for working, meeting or just kicking back, the choice of espresso and single-origin filter options, and a small but enticing lineup of counter cakes, sandwiches and kitchen food.
BEST FOR: Morning sunshine with great coffee. Atomic coffee
