Half Cup (Kings Cross)
The Half Cup, located along the way to Judd Street, is just near St. Pancras Station/Kings’s Cross. You probably can’t miss this popular cafe called ‘Half Cup.’ This place caught my eye straight away ever since they introduced the ‘Oreo French Toast’ on their menu. Therefore, a visit here was a must as I love good-looking food. Although they’ve existed for over three years now.
Review of Half Cup
Half Cup is your traditional wooden style cafe, but has seating areas inside and out, so if you prefer to dine inside, they have large enough tables to your right as you walk into another room. Plenty of space for a group of friends to sit together or at each table for couples.
Also, you have wooden benches under a solitary window. Otherwise, for people like myself who prefer to have natural light shining down on their food, their outdoor wooden table seats for two are just perfect.
This cafe tends to stay busy throughout the day, so expect to wait if you tend to walk in at a busy time and need a seat outdoors, which I had to for a bit as I arrived earlier than scheduled. However, it goes to show how well they are doing as people tend to stay here for some time and come back often. It is like your typical cafe, but their delicious looking food is what they are well-known for.
The use of amazing paintings on their walls and plants surrounding it makes it look cosy and cute. This was my first time visiting the Half Cup and the service was exceptional as they really took care of me. The area did bring back some old memories as I used to work literally around the corner for a short-term several years ago. The menu here is really impressive, as you have so many options for food and drink.
I already had my eye on French toast from the beginning and the pink looked pretty beetroot. Therefore, I ordered what I wanted, wasting no time ordering the Pink Beetroot Latte and French toast.
Also, the friendly staff, whom I had a conversation with before attending here, suggested that I go for a smoothie. I decided to choose a True Yellow smoothie, which looked amazing! Containing passion fruit, pineapple, banana, turmeric and orange. A healthy and refreshing drink 🙂
Overall, I would like to thank the staff, who really looked after me and made sure everything was okay. After a few confusions at the start, by sitting indoors and then going outside to sit but in my experience it was really good. The food came relatively quickly with the prettiest latte coming first within 5 minutes. It tasted divine as if it was the perfect choice made.
Following the work of art, the ‘Oreo Cookie French Toast’ was truly scrumptious and perfect for the camera. Dressed in Nutella mascarpone, crushed Oreos and berries. The true yellow smoothie was soft, which had a taste of turmeric and orange more than anything. I really enjoyed my choice of food 🙂
To summarise, I would recommend dropping by and trying out the French Toast in person or the granola. However, I didn’t want to over bloat myself by ordering two dishes, but if I were to go next time I would recommend Granola or the veg full English.
