Cup and Cake
9:30-12:00 (P.M.)
114 Gorky Street

At a certain point, everyone just wants a great café to drink coffee, catch up on work, and enjoy a pleasant atmosphere. Luckily there are a few coffee shops near the London School and since I love coffee, I am determined to try each and every one. The first I tried was Cup and Cake which is similar to any coffee shop in the West except – it has incredibly low prices. I had a very nice cup of coffee and a slice of chocolate cake for roughly $3, which was especially appreciated considering the winter just outside. The food is superb for the price and the coffee is good, although not mind blowing. Cup and Cake is a nice, affordable, and comfortable coffee shop only minutes away from at the London School. It is a great place for work or people watching, and if you come I recommend the chocolate cake since it comes with complementary vanilla ice cream.
