Excellent! Let's hope a flat white is not £3...still in shock after going to Brown's for the first time the other day.
Any photos of the interior if that's the main thing that has changed? Has it gone more corporate or is it still a load of contrasting styles?
it seems like browns went up in price overnight! - it always used to be a bargain at £1.50 i think it was but to suddenly go up to £3!....that's a tad above inflation?....
How much is the mung bean chowder?
I think the prices are the same actually as before. Having said that, I only drink mung bean lattes
£3 is a fair price for a quality coffee. If you are looking for a low cost caffeine fix try the Brockley Barge or cup of Kenco from a greasy spoon.
That was me
hmmm i paid £3 today for a small cup of filter coffee......that is actually quite expensive......central caf always used to have a beautiful italian espresso machine with which they would froth milk on top of which they would sprinkle nescafe......they were more innocent but perhaps happier times.....ahhhhh.....
I am stickng with the shed on platform 1, tea and hypothermia thats the ticket.
Looks like you are their ideal customer...Sucker.
I don't know where this people are buying their coffee miscela and milk but I'm sure overall they cost a little bit too much as prices are now the same as west end/soho caffee shops...
Shame Broca are stopping the veg boxes they do
Well it shows how often 'guest' visited Browns as it went from £2.50 to £3 not from £1.50. As Ross explains on the in shop leaflet, the prices had to go up because basically they are losing money, and considering it's usually full it's not through lack of customers. Brown's styles itself as serving some of the best coffee in London, so yes there is a premium to pay on that. Browns buys it's coffee direct from the grower and the milk direct from the farmer in Kent, so again it uses the best quality ingredients, not just popping to Costcutter to pick up a pint and a packet of Douwe Egberts.
£3 for a cup of coffee! You can buy three cans of White Ace for less than that, and I know which I prefer to get me going in the morning.
What a shame the Broca swapped its lovely, bright, unusual green visage for this exceptionally dull and nondescript brown. I hope it's just an undercoat!
mmm....best? what's best for you maybe is not best for me as coffee is a matter of taste...rather than buying the "best" they should have different quality to make a wider audience happy...I would go for not the "best" miscela but good cheaper one...or somewhere else closer to work
Brockley is not short of places near the station to have a cup of coffee. Browns, Broca, Gantry, Orchard then, for those where economy is priority, The Barge and The Central and other greasy spoons. You lucky, lucky people! Sadly the same cannot be said for loose leaf tea, which is not much in evidence. There are just too many tea bags in Brockley. A crying shame!
Oh please £3 is steep. Was in the Workshop cafe in marleybone and there a flat white is 2.50. Arlo and Moe is 2.40 even Monmouth Cafe is cheaper!
"Browns buys it's coffee direct from the grower and the milk direct from the farmer in Kent, so again it uses the best quality ingredients"How does who you buy it from have any direct bearing on quality? Someone has definitely bought into the Coulgate St hype.I get my coffees in a polystyrene cup from Top Chef - no need to pay for extra.
Sounds like there are plenty of alternatives that sell coffe for a price that you are willing to pay, that being the case why are you fixated on Browns? Shop elsewhere. Are they obliged to meet your personal price point? No doubt many will feel that £2.40 is too much, it's really of no consequence. It's not an essential like clean drinking water, no one is being exploited.
Good, then you need say no more on the topic. Back to the Broca please.
That's possibly the most insipid colour I've ever seen, I wouldn't have a bin that colour let alone a shop.
Coffee and popcorn are two of the most profitable products.
The Broca has a bit of an unfinished feel to it with mismatched furniture and walls that remain undecorated from the their change around.I am guessing that it will stay that way for some time to come to maintain that unpretentious 'shabby' look.Bit like a squat with a coffee machine.So Brockley!
It is rather dull.... :( I really liked the previous green - very distinctive!
Have they got their bar license yet?
Are they really stopping their veg delivery boxes? that's a shame. I love Broca food market, the cafe - not so much.
I like the new colour. Looks like caramel.
