Square Meal Review of Foxcroft & Ginger Whitechapel ?

An offshoot of Foxcroft & Ginger in Soho, this quirky café occupies the ground floor of an iconic building once dubbed the ‘Harrods of the East’. Like the original, it’s done out in cute industrial-chic style with black, bell-shaped miners-style lamps hanging from the high stone ceiling and mismatched vintage crockery – plus an old family-kitchen table with the hand-carved F&G heart logo. Hand-baked cakes and breads are the top shouts, along with sourdough pizzas, savoury filled buns and all manner of breakfast/brunch staples including a dressed-up version of French toast loaded with ham, cheese, béchamel sauce and honey mustard. Among the sweet treats, don’t miss the chocolate brownies, banana bread or lemon meringue cupcakes. Coffee is taken seriously, with beans sourced from artisan suppliers and water purified using reverse osmosis; otherwise fresh teas, creative cocktails, craft beers and wines do the trick. No bookings.

The long Easter weekend jogged my memory and made me wonder whether it had opened and whether it would be a good brunch option. A bit of research revealed it to be Foxcroft and Ginger who do indeed do brunch. They already have a restaurant in Soho, this is their second venue. It opened on April 3rd and is located on Mile End Road, a convenient walk from our flat, perfect for a lazy brunch. We walked in past a table laden with muffins, croissants and pastries (always a good first sight) and found ourselves a table. As we perused the brunch menu we ordered drinks. Earl Grey for me which came in a pretty china cup...
