Review: Gray's Coffee Shop



I recently became aware of a new local coffee shop which is a non-profit business giving young people the opportunity to gain experience in a workplace. It's a great little place to pop along to and have a bite to eat while contributing to a good cause.


Although the decor is a little industrial, and reminiscent of a college canteen, it does have some nice touches. I love the grey brick chimney breast and the ornate mirrors. 

An entire wall is comprised of a ginormous bookshelf with a whole host of books for sale, or you can just flick through while you eat. 

My favourite thing about Gray's: It sells Fentiman's Rose Lemonade, which is just the most delicious drink ever!

I plumped for the chicken pesto sandwich which was yummy! So creamy and flavourful, and it came with a side of potato salad which was a little heavy on the chives, but tasty nonetheless. 
 The real highlight, however, is the chocolate brownie cheesecake. With a perfectly crispy topping and chewy chocolate centre, with swirls of cheese marbled in, it's heaven on a plate!
