Food Friday – Hermitage Rd. Coffee Bar

In my hometown of Hitchin, there is a coffee bar that was recently reviewed in The Independent 50 best coffee shops. I’ve been to Hermitage Rd. Bar & Restaurant for meals several times but had never ventured into their coffee bar. After Lexi tweeted about their amazing salted caramel cookies I decided to get my decaf mocha there instead of Starbucks for a change – and so I could try the cookie!

My coffee was very carefully made in full view not hidden behind the machine. It wasn’t as chocolatey as I normally like my mocha to be but it was a lovely coffee and went hand-in-hand with the delicious chewy salted caramel cookie from The Fine Cookie Co. My coffee was £2.50, the cookie was £1.50.

Pricewise it’s a teensy bit more expensive than Starbucks where I usually go but Hermitage Rd. has a loyalty card to make sure it doesn’t lose your business to Starbucks, Costa or Caffe Nero which are all minutes away. Every seventh coffee (or tea) is free. I like free.

I do like Hermitage Rd. It’s a gorgeous looking restaurant and the food is fantastic. However, the last time I went for Sunday lunch my friend and I were really disappointed in the service we received. I’m popping in again on Sunday for brunch, hopefully it will be better.
