C1 Espresso Review

At C1 an enthusiastic staff roasts and serves superb coffee and the chefs arrive in person to deliver their own tasty food. That's just the start of what goes on in this interesting heritage building. There are intriguing stories behind everything—from the grapevines and beehives on the roof garden (look up before you walk inside), to the unusual drinking fountains and LEGO bar (look carefully); or sit outside and feast your eyes on a beautifully laid-out vegetable garden. Having to "do without" after the earthquakes made the café's owner determined not to let it happen here. Try the corn and coriander fritters with bacon and guacamole. And their orange juice is heaven in a bottle.
