In what’s essentially the basement of the SuitSupply store on Newbury, you’ll find Cafe Susu - a cool coffee shop complete with a green velvet couch and matching leafy wallpaper. There’s surprisingly good coffee here, cocktails and beer are served throughout the day, and the wifi is also relatively fast. So you can foreseeably work remotely with a cappuccino in one hand and an Aperol Spritz in the other, right alongside tailors that are hemming suits - making it one of the most unique spots in the city.
