London’s first porridge cafe

First there was a cereal cafe (London) then a crisp sandwich cafe (Belfast), now a porridge cafe is to open in London. Which will actually be quite near my offices in Old Street!

The menu is rather interesting… as they offer both sweet and savoury options. Yes, savoury porridge – what will that be like?! The cafe will have classic breakfast style options such as baked apple, raisin & cinnamon (YUM!) and a more adventurous option including lemon, fennel & mushroom.


The cafe came to life after its founders, Nik & Elly (who started Bow Street Kitchen in 2013) went on a trip to Scandinavia and noticed a trend for high quality and interest porridge. They then got back to London, did some research and set about creating London’s first Porridge Cafe.

I will definitely pay them a visit when they open on March 2nd. I think the sweet options will go down well and I am so intrigued to try out a savoury option – the one below actually looks really good!


What do you think? Would you try this cafe? Has anyone ever tried savoury porridge before?!
