Wonderful - Every time I visit Dose I get a fantastic coffee as well as a delicious selection of sandwiches, my personal favourite is the Salami and Pesto, superb! All this plus friendly and personal service. Keep up the good work!

Disappointed - Have visited this little shop several times and was very good when it opened. Although I like the food and coffee I now seem to come away feeling disappointed with the customer service. Not as friendly as when they first opened. They look stressed and when other customers get served before me and they've arrive after me it's very annoying when you are in a rush in the morning! This has happened a few times. 'Is it me?' I'm left asking myself and leave feeling disappointed. Sorry Dose you need to pay more attention to your customers!

Where Coffee is Respected - If you are looking for coffee brewed with passion, you needn't go any further! Dose Espresso is a real shot of flavours. Service is very friendly.
Only improvement could be the seating area... perhaps tall tables or a counter along the windows? But if I say that, it's only because I wish it was cosier to hang out there longer!

Sensational - One of the best coffees in London without a shadow of a doubt, great service and lovely food. Well worth going out of your way for, and if you are lucky enough to work/live nearby then you may consider your search for great coffee officially over!

for the serious coffee drinker - it's nice to find a place that take their coffee seriously (a great antidote to the chains), plus the food is pretty good too.

i'm a little lazy, but I do go out of my way for for a coffee here which says much.

it's a shame they don't have a bigger seating area, which is a bit cramped and reminds me of a cab office. this is my only fault and reason i can't give 5 stars.

check it out.

Dose is the Dope - I try to go every morning as I walk my g/f to work. If she is running late and doesn't have time for coffee it gives me a difficult choice. Well, not that difficult, Dose wins everytime.
I hope they expand and get little Dose embassies all around London...
I also like the enviro leanings and the fresh food. £1.50 for a big bowl of porridge is a great start to a credit crunched day.

Marching to the beat in barbican - While visiting the Man with the Cap in Whitecross St market (red umbrellas for all of those not in the know of Gwilym Davies) I was fortunate enough to come see the crew at Dose Espresso in Barbican.

All the great things you've heard are true- fantastic food, great service and coffee to write blogs about. Never need to worry about space in a downtown cafe where every centimetres at a premium- the cafe is so cosy and still with seperate spaces to avoid bumping lattes with the fortunate souls who live so close to Dose.

Truly another drum to be beaten loudly.

Food, drinks, service... all great! - I went to Dose today primarily because I'd read rave reviews about their coffee. What I didn't expect was to have one of the best sandwiches I'd ever eaten in my life. And I should know; I've lived off sandwiches for the past 20 years of so, and still haven't grown sick of them. I tried the milano salami, goat cheese, sun blush tomato, basil and rocket on wholemeal bread (the very last one, as it turned out) made by Nicola, and it was awesome. The combination of fillings, and the bread... all incredibly delicious.

The coffee, as everyone has written, is good. My experience was tinged somewhat as it later transposed I'd been given a latte instead of the flat white I'd ordered, leading me to wonder why my beverage was so milky. Still, as barista Steve said, I need to come back and try a proper flat white some time soon!

I'm giving this four stars instead of five as the place is a wee bit small. Still, this is an incredibly warm and cheerful place, from the handwritten paper menu behind the counter to the colourful drinks menu to the wonderful service... definitely a great addition to the City.

Dose coffee shop - This little shop has just opened across the road from where I work. The coffee is velvety smooth and a welcome break from the working day. The service is friendly and atmosphere good. Would love them to have a bigger space to be able to drink my coffee there.

Double Espresso - I can comfortably say that Dose does the finest espresso I've tasted in London. Made with care and knowledge. The pesto toast is also fantastic. Deserves every success.

Awesome Coffee Shop Clerkenwell - Dose is another great addition to the London coffee scene. It marries maniacal attention to coffee making detail with Square Mile coffee (who practice the same with their roasting) and serves it up with Antipodean friendly service. And it manages to create a nice coffee house atmosphere in a tiny space.

The only criticism is that the space is just that, tiny. If it were big with nice tables and free wifi I’d never, ever leave.

Perfect! - After walking by several times over the past few weeks (they're 6 weeks old), I decided to give Dose a try. So much nicer than visiting EAT up the road. The coffee was smooth and chocolaty and the porridge was a really nice surprise - especially so with the bananas, brown sugar and major honking walnuts. I'm totally won over.

DOSE Expresso - A real artisanal coffee experience.
Visit Dose and experience the coffee rather than just drink it. There is nothing else in the way of top quality cafes in the area so this is a breathe of fresh air. Very glad to have it in the neighbourhood.

I love my neighbour! - I work in a very small office, well it is more like a small room, and not really an office at all. Sometimes, I need to pop out for a breather, just to get some fresh air and a coffee. I could walk across the market to Vinoteca (where I work), and get a free coffee, but that isn't always the best choice. If the restaurant is busy, then I feel like I'm in the way, and of course I would have to make the coffee myself, which takes a lot of effort (and being Canadian and not Kiwi, I can't really make that great of a coffee). Until recently, this is what I would have to do, either make my own or lower my standards and have a latte made with burnt milk, that tastes more the porridge than coffee. But now my saviour Dose has showed up just beside the small room that I am based in, and what a relief! It is a super cute litte espresso bar, with a super enthusiastic Kiwi owner, who of course makes amazing coffee! What a great addition to my life! Thanks Dose

Recommended daily dose - Nice to see an ethical coffee shop for a change.

Really friendly staff and amazing brownies. Coffee's really tasty and currently sold at introductory prices, so hurry on down whilst the coffee's hot and the prices are cheap!

Excellent Coffee and treats. - London is fast becoming a great place for coffee lovers and Dose is the latest arrival. Situated behind or in front of Smithfield market (depending on which direction you're facing) it's a small but perfectly formed coffee emporium selling Square Mile coffee.

Not only is the coffee awesome but they sell amazing brownies and ANZAC cookies (if you don't know what they are google it - but they're delicious).

They also have a wall painted with metallic paint so the menu is written on the wall using those magnetic fridge letters you used to have as a kid.

Anyway this place is well worth a visit even if you're not a local.
