300 Coffee Shops! Wood St Coffee, 56 St James and School House Cafe

One happy and caffeinated coffee shop explorer.
Today I finally passed the milestone of visiting 300 independent coffee shops in London. I decided to make number 300 the newly relocated Wood St Coffee because its been ages since I told them I'd come round to making a visit to their old spot in Walthamstow. 

They haven't moved too far, with their grand reopening today at Blackhorse Workshop, a public space that provides access to fully equiped wood and metal workshops for DIY work. Serving Climpsons and Sons coffee, the coffee shop almost acts as an entrance- much like the new Craving Coffee that has a similar space but with artist's studios. 

A short walk away was the mysterious 56 St James. Open only four days a week, they serve Nude Espresso in their interior decorated with, among other things, pineapples and collections of National Geographic. 

Going back to my flat at Bermondsey, a small sign advertising avocado and eggs pointed me in the direction of a coffee shop only a block away. It's the School House Cafe serving Climpsons and Sons. It's a social enterprise that provides training and work experience for those with autism.
