Londoners who take a little iPad with their coffee might want to swing by Shoreditch and check out The Guardian's pop-up coffee shop. As TechCityNews reports, the Guardian newspaper has teamed up with Nude Espresso and EE to open the pop-up coffee shop, called #guardiancoffee, in the world's first pop-up mall made of shipping containers in the Shoreditch area of London.
Inside, customers will find not only a delicious blend, but also free 4G internet and iPads throughout so patrons can browse the Guardian and the Observer newspapers on Apple's tablet. Other tech incorporated into the pop-up coffee shop include a projection of Twitter feeds and infographics on the walls so users can see the latest news as they order their coffee.
Believe it or not this isn't the first food place with built-in iPads at the table in London. Back in October we reported that Elements restaurant south of the river in London installed iPads at the table so customers could play with them while dining.
#guardiancoffee is at Unit 1-3, BOXPARK, 2-10, Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6GY.
