After a successful first year in Whitechapel, artisan cafe-cum-bakery Foxcroft & Ginger has decided to expand East. F&G will be opening a pop up site at Old Street station on Monday 6 April 2015.
The cafe, which will be open for three months, will be located just a short walk from London’s most hip and trendiest hangout Shoreditch.
Foxcroft & Ginger will be offering ‘food to go’ such as hand-made baked goods, delicious sandwiches made from F&G’s signature sourdough baked in their Soho branch and fresh salads prepared on site. The new pop up cafe follows the same quirky industrial-chic design principles made famous in the Soho and Whitechapel sites.
Every single ingredient is freshly made in-house at their Whitechapel or Soho branch, with original recipes lovingly tweaked to perfection. A non-stop, 24-hour bakery operation is in place to create the unique sourdough, which is based on a secret family formula and adds a deeper flavour to all of the baked goods. The coveted sourdough bread, which is already supplied to a number of top London restaurants, is also available to purchase in store.
Foxcroft & Ginger is the lovechild of dynamic husband and wife duo, Quintin and Georgina, who spent over ten years launching successful restaurants before taking the plunge with their own creation. Born from a desire to find a place where you can relax with good food and not feel pressured to pay up and move on, F&G is the place they dreamed of for years. It takes its name from Quintin’s family name, ‘Foxcroft’, and Georgina’s redhead pride! The original Berwick Street site has already developed a cult following, including the likes of Lily Cole, Anne Hathaway and Bill Nighy, thanks to its lovingly made, delicious offerings.
