En route I had decided to try Coppa first, since I bypassed it last time on my way to Orka – and I thought it would make for a good study – comparing two coffee shops, just a block apart. The site for Coppa used to house Rocksalt & Snails, which may be why I had weary feeling about it to this point. It wasn’t, however, until writing this post that I realised I had actually been to Coppa since they took over – and rated it better than its predecessor.
There is a range of options presented to you in the form of cake cabinet on the side, as well as menu boards for daily hot specials. With their regular menu also displayed in the window it is easy to make up your mind before you enter, so it was a quick process for me again – a coconut alternative mocha was soon being prepped as I peeked into the windows of their shop next door (the other options were oat and soy, all at a 30p supplement)
