A hidden rare gem in bournemouth - the design of this place is amazing, such a cool unique vibe and the coffee is great. Staff were amazing and the cozy upstairs seating is the best place to chill with friends or get some work done....Wish I'd found out about it earlier.More

We went with our toddler . Amazing staff. A lovely coffee and just a bit different. Chalk boards provide some artistic outlet or amusement too. Lovely bagels.

Tired of being ripped off by the big chain giants with their impersonal service and over-brewed tasteless swill pretending to be coffee I was utterly delighted to discover this little golden nugget ! Friendly staff and the best latte I've had in ages 💓☕😎😎

Expresso kitchen is a true gem, offering the best coffee in town. I have tried their overnight oats with all the yummy toppings this morning and my verdict is truly scrumptious. My husband loves their carrot cake; actually all the cakes are always fresh. If...you are in town don’t go back home without dropping into Espresso kitchen.More

What a lovely first visit to Espresso Kitchen last week. Friendly welcome, Covid-aware, fab coffee, friendly service, quirky decor, good value and lovely vibe. We sat at a 1st floor window table...perfect for watching the bustling world go by below. Access and ground floor are...on the level, narrow winding stairs to the 1st floor, a couple of small pavement tables too. The vibe here is fantastic, thanks to the lovely staff and informal decor. We loved it!More

Found it friendly quirky and good coffe. I like very dark roasts but can appreciate a nice smooth americano My wife loved the americano It's a bit young hipster and definitely LGBT friendly, we are neither but were made most welcome Cakes looked good (...and I am a Baker) but didn't try as had only just had breakfast. We will be backMore
