With its huge windows, spacious Wilton Way coffee spot Footnote feels very bright and public. It’s the perfect kind of place to meet for a low-key coffee date with a person you’ve never met before, and if things go well you can hang around for brunch which runs from familiar options like avocado on toast, through to less common but equally tasty pico de gallo on sourdough.
