Opening on 17 March 2014 at Amazon’s HQ, 60 Holborn Viaduct, the 1,200sq ft café will feature a 16m marble horseshoe-shaped bar and a private coffee room via a sliding door.
Commenting on the expansion, James Dickson, founder, said: “Holborn Viaduct was chosen as it represents a new and upcoming part of Holborn, with great potential and a lot of pioneering and exciting companies moving into the area. We cherish the opportunity to be able to give them Workshop Coffee and expand our brand into the area.”
Founded in 2009 by Dickson, Workshop Coffee Co, operates a wholesale coffee and retail business.
It opened its first outlet in 2011 in an old Victorian textile factory in Clerkenwell, London, followed by a coffee bar in Marylebone two months later. With seating for 14 customers, the Marylebone site offers a small sandwich and pastry range.
Bakery breakfast options available at the Clerkenwell outlet include croissants au beurre, almond croissants, pains aux raisins, pains au chocolat and sweet muffins. For lunch, a selection of daily sandwiches is available, with toast and eggs or banana bread on offer for brunch.
According to Dickson, each outlet has an individual design concept aimed at complementing the structure, aesthetic and nature of the chosen space.
He added that he hoped to expand outside London, but will focus on developing his existing sites for the foreseeable future.
