Kaffeine Café for Caffeine Addicts

Kaffeine caféKaffeine Café

オックスフォード・ストリートの北、FitzroviaのGreat Titchfield Streetにあるカフェ、「Kaffeine(カフェイン)」。Nude EspressoSacred CaféDose Espressoと、私のブログではお馴染みになったダウン・アンダー系カフェで、20年以上の経験を持つオーストラリア人/ニュージーランド人の経営だ。いかつい黒い外観と裏腹に、中は赤煉瓦の壁、白木造りの椅子やテーブルが、温もりを感じさせる。奥にある、白木製のシーティング・エリアも、レゴのようで可愛い。

お昼時もかなり過ぎていたので、サンドイッチはほぼ売り切れ。かろうじて、フォッカチア風のふかふかしたパンに、サーモンとチーズ、レッドオニオン、ルッコラ、ケッパーを挟んだサンドイッチをゲットできた。サーモンの風味を損なわないよう、熱すぎずほんのりと温められたサンドイッチは、カウンターから冷蔵庫に移されていた残り物(失礼!)にも関わらず、とてもフレッシュで美味しかった。コーヒーにこだわるカフェ御用達のSquare Mile Coffee Roastersから仕入れた高品質の豆を使った自慢のコーヒーも、コーヒー好きのMのお墨付き。 オックスフォード・ストリートやトッテナム・コート・ロードから少し歩くけれど、カフェマニアなら行く価値あり。

Kaffeine‘ is a café on Great Titchfield Street in Fitzrovia, north of busy Oxford Street. The café is owned by Australian/New Zealander with over 20-year experience in the industry – another Down Under cafe in my blog as  Nude EspressoSacred CaféDose Espresso. On the contrary to the strong black exterior, inside is rather warm and cosy with red brick wall and white wood chairs. The seating areas on the back, also made of white woods, are like Lego blocks and very cute.

It was late afternoon when we went to Kaffeine, and there were only three sandwiches left. We got Focaccia sandwiches with smoke salmon, cream cheese, red onions and cappers. The gently warmed up sandwich, in order not to harm the texture and flavor of smoke salmon, was very fresh and nice, though these were the last ones and were already moved from the counter to the fridge. Their signature coffee, supplied by coffee-lover’s favorite Square Mile Coffee Roasters, was promising. You have to walk a bit from Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road, but if you are a cafe lover, Kaffeine really deserves to make a little trip.
