Affagato - Gem on Hardware Lane
Another great café with an Italian flavour! Just look for the tree right outside Affagato in Hardware Lane! Excellent coffee! Great service – staff really have character and a genuine pleasantness here! The upbeat staff have cheerily engaged me and others as we journeyed down Hardware Lane. (This is also a Hardware Lane thing with huge competition for business).
Love the retro fit out and some quirky objects hanging from walls or set on shelves.
This place does great breakfast specials! Feels wonderfully Italian! Ciao! Settled for simple bacon and egg muffin and coffee. Was told by the waitress that they had run out of muffins and would Turkish bread suffice? Of course! I ended up with a massive and impressive egg and bacon sandwich in a full Turkish roll! The coffee was excellent.
This place is known for great lunch and dinner options including pizzas and steak and salads.
From a marketing point of view, I like their logo!
