If you’re the kind of person who spends any amount of time in Chelsea then you probably know that it’s not the best part of town in which to nurse a single coffee for five or six hours while powering through all those invoices you’ve steadfastly failed to send out for the last two months. Cpress is the kind of place where you can. The coffee is good, it’s comfortable without being too cosy, it’s open late, and there’s nothing like watching locals come in for £10 juices to motivate you to actually (finally) get paid.
