The Coffe Counter (Or - A Hidden Gem In Leicester)
I must admit this is a kind of a cheat review.  I had been to The Coffee Counter before but at that point I was more concerned about whether or not I was going to get a replacement bus pass than rating the cafe.



There are some great places that you can walk past if you are not looking for them – and you will miss a gem.

The Coffee Counter is one such place.  Tucked away on Bowling Green Street in Leicester (the last place I would expect to find a cafe) is an Olde Worlde type cafe.  I mean that in the best possible way – the menu is short and sweet (as in you don't get hundreds of choices but what choices you do get are well-executed).

You also feel comfortable in the light, airy surroundings.  The best thing about it is the owners appear to have gone for comfort over capacity.  I have noticed a tendency with small cafes to try to cram as many customers as they can into the available space making it difficult for people like me to feel truly comfortable in it.

There are no worries about me getting around in this cafe.  Not only that but I felt like I could have a private conversation with the friend I was with – even though it was an open plan layout.

The coffee is up to my usual high standards (as is the food).

A really nice touch is the logo appearing on the cups (I am a sucker for an interesting logo).

The Coffee Counter is really worth a visit.
