Situated in creative hotspot of Leonard Street, Shoreditch, Renzo Coffee shop is the daily pit-stop for local workers and freelancers throughout the working week. The cosy yet practically organised space is warm and welcoming from the moment you step through the front door; It’s hanging plants, bold colourful art prints and private plant filled courtyard make it a great central spot to escape the city rush in that sacred lunch hour. With Italian roots, it’s unsurprising that the quality of coffee draw regulars back for more, bringing with them their own mugs and frank green keep cups (sold in store!). When speaking with the owner, Lorenzo on how his business works towards sustainability, he proudly shared the plethora of small and achievable changes such as using waste coffee in compost for the shop’s many plants and only using 100% recyclable cups. Renzo’s offers a selection of breakfast and lunch options, including fresh salads and an array of mouth watering pastries.
