The warm crackle of vinyl is not what you’d expect to hear from a glass-faced behemoth at the bottom of Bree Street. Here, at the base of the Portside Tower, sits Hard Pressed Café, Zimbabwe-born Yaron Wiesenbacher’s record store-come-café:
“Coffee, food, vinyl,” he says, “That’s what we do here.”
And it’s a fine blend. Of the trio, food falls as a distant third due to its lack of variety alone. The menu, mostly sandwiches and salads (try the Moroccan), is limited but tasty:
The coffee, on the other hand, and collection of vinyls – both brand new and pre-owned – are varied to say the least.
What’s Hot: Great music and unique coffee flavour combinations
⊄ Coffee – House Blend
≈ WiFi – Yes
Vinyl and good beans, you’d be Hard Pressed to find a better blend Rating.
