REVIEW: Coin Laundry, Exmouth Market

REVIEW: Coin Laundry, Exmouth Market

8X2A6427 (1)

WHAT? A relaxed, minimal dining space in the middle of pretty Exmouth Market, Coin Laundry goes big on the nostalgia. Think chicken kiev, pie, 70s revival cocktails and board games – plus a brilliant boozy brunch.


We dropped in on a Saturday morning to road test the bottomless offering (£18 plus your food order), a short menu printed on coloured card offering the likes of  ham, eggs and chips on farmhouse bread and spelt pancakes with blueberries, bananas, yoghurt and London honey.


STAND-OUT DISH: Not a dish as such, but the bottomless ‘Pamplemousse’ was divine – a light yet heady concoction of gin, grapefruit and elderflower you can knock back like water (and we did. Oh. we did).

Other bottomless options include Bucks Fizz (Prosecco and fresh orange juice) or Bloody Mary – a vodka, tomato juice and house spice blend. Staff were friendly and courteous when offering refills, and the coffee was excellent, too.


HOW MUCH: All dishes on the bottomless brunch menu are a tenner – pretty expensive for the likes of avocado on toast with an egg and feta, but much more reasonable if you choose steak and eggs with sriracha butter (delicious) or a Full English breakfast with sausages, bacon, fried slice, eggs, mushroom and beans.

Dinner options include fresh fish. bavette steak, risotto and a range of traditional pies, but some with a twist – we love the sound of turkey balti or squash, feta and walnut crumble. A lovely place to stop off and thaw out after wandering through the market, we’d recommend popping in anytime (but if you can, on the weekend – Connect 4 until 2am, anyone?).

ADDRESS: 70 Exmouth Market, London, EC1R 4QP
