Mill Hill Broadway
Reviewed August 2018

Next to Nat West Bank Site

This month we have one new opening on Broadway and we welcome a new Coffee Cafe  to next to the Nat West Bank site called SIMPLE COFFEE (see T Shirt photo below ! )

There is a new coffee place on the Broadway. So we visited for lunch and to try out the menu. The first thing we noticed is how pleasantly the cafe is set out with arty pictures of dancers and a cool interior. It reminded us of the Italian coffee shop that used to be where BAW now is.....and the menu has a distinctly Italian flavour.

We decided to have paninis (photos below) which are all priced at just £4.95 These were very generously sized and made to order. They came with a small side salad. Himalayan Pink Salt and pepper allowed to season to our taste. The avocado, Brie and peppers panini was very tasty and the tuna and cheddar cheese was also very filling.  Ideal for lunch.

For desert we shared the Apple Cake, at only £2.90 , it has to be the best value cake on the Broadway. All the cakes are home made and priced at this. You can also be even more decadent and try out the cheesecake and others at a slightly higher price. The cake was sensational, and likely to become a firm Mill Hill favourite treat.  We can see ourselves coming here for coffee and cake often !

Now...the cafe is called Simple we hoped the coffee would be good. Luckily, we were not disappointed. Our Americano Black £2.40 was strong, smooth and smelt wonderful and tasted fantastic. As coffeeaholics we had to ask the staff about whether it has Italian origins !! We were pleased to hear that the manager had managed an Italian restaurant - so we were correct!! So if you like Italian style coffee I am pleased to let you know we have it back on the Broadway. The cappuccino £2.70 was made superbly and looked perfect (see photo).  They offer a takeaway service as well - so you can grab and go.

Simple Coffee does not have the large meals of the other cafes on the Broadway, but offers an Italian style cafe, with brilliant coffee and the best cakes. It’s salads in bowls, sandwiches and paninis are excellent, and for those of us who like to light lunch and drink coffee this is a very welcome addition to the Broadway. Comfortable seating and decor make it a lovely place to sit.

Finally the cafe has outdoor tables, which are in a quiet part next to Nat West, and it opens at 7a.m as well for early birds and commuters who want a quality coffee fix before/on the way to work. So we suggest you visit as soon as possible, and whilst they have several of the cakes for testing on the counter !!
