Hg2 : The Hedonist

Café do Koe

‘The cow’ covers a lot of bases in one venue. It’s tatty but trendy, bringing a mix of media types and straggly students, has the cosiness of a brown cafe (but slightly more well-chosen music) an excellent dining room, and its own hash cafe next door. There’s a scruffy charm to the main bar, which is up a short but steep flight of stairs as you enter. There are board games and darts, but the focus is more on drink and chat than play. The decor is all worn wood and well loved furniture, enlivened by a cartoonishly beautiful mosaic by the entrance to the toilets. One floor below is the restaurant, The Stuffed Cow, a surprisingly competent kitchen that does good quality pan-European food at around ?15 a main. There’s normally a large enough crowd to ensure an atmosphere, but not so many people that you can’t find a seat.
