What they say:
illycaffé, leading producers and makers of quality coffee have opened a 'new generation' flagship boutique café bar, incorporating sleek Italian architecture with the typical illy design in order to give you the ultimate café experience. The two floored seating area makes for a big, open space, fitted with free in-store table devices and Wi-Fi, provided by Samsung, encouraging creativity and innovation. Expect nothing but the best in Italian cuisine, from morning pastries to afternoon pasta, along with a variation of both hot and cold Italian inspired drinks. Once they get their drinks licence later on in the year, you'll also be able to savour some truly tasty aperitifs and Italian wines.
What we say:
At illy Regent Street you will be surrounded by stylish decor fitted with beautiful photographs. However what sets this flagship boutique apart is a giant chandelier made up of 216 illy Art Collection coffee cups (designed by many different artists over the past 20 years) as well as an impressive mosaic mural, a replica of one of their 1930's adds. But best of all, prepare to indulge in a desserts menu to die for! With creamy sweet pastries, a coffee rich tiramisu, crunchy biscuits, and afternoon cakes, I guarantee your sweet tooth cravings will be satisfied!
