I work in the building next to the we work, its an odd place, a bit on a no man’s land between tourist central of the london eye etc and then commuters from Waterloo. Im not a fan at all!

For coffee the black Penny is on the other side of the wework which is pretty good, but it’s full of people from the businesses near by.

Borough market isn’t too far away for lunches etc

Best kept secret for Friday lunches.
Ask for half medium, half hot with yellow rice and say you work locally.
Absolutely incredible. And careful of their hot sauce.
