Sometimes the seat in Pret next to the plug point just doesn’t cut it. Sometimes you need a bolthole - for work or conversation - that offers a little bit more comfort. That’s exactly what Spiritland offers King’s Cross. This trying-to-be-cool-but-actually-quite-nice café and bar is ideal to pitch up in for an hour or two. The food is fine - don’t expect anything to blow you away - but the music and relaxed atmosphere make this an excellent place to know about in the area.
