Coffee Shop
“Bootlegger is certainly serious about coffee, but the food offering holds its own, too. Breakfasts are made with free-range eggs and artisan bread and lunches and dinners comprise well-executed burgers, open and hot-pressed sandwiches, and inventive salads. Dark grey walls, golden light fittings and vintage type, make this popular with freelancers and Macbook owners.”
