Spend a penny in style
When Pete Tomlinson and Ben Russell spotted the ‘to rent’ sign on an underground Victorian toilet, they saw the opportunity to create something new on the London coffee scene.
Instead of erasing all memories of its previous function, they chose to renovate the space – keeping the 1890s Doulton & Co. urinals, maintaining the original iron-wrought cladding and creating the perfect subterranean café.
What really sets the Attendant apart, apart from its unique setting, is the food and drink. Coffee made from carefully roast beans, ingredients chosen nightly at New Covent Garden Market and incredible treats from the Bittersweet Bakers – all under one (toilet) roof.
