Square Meal Review of Stax Carnaby ?

Famous for her teatime treats at Bea's of Bloomsbury and, more recently, her weekend pitch on Maltby Street, Bea Vo has branched out with a new venue just off tourist-clogged Carnaby Street. Taking its name from the Memphis-based record label, Stax trades as an American-style diner. Kicking off with breakfasts of buttermilk pancakes, bagels and suchlike, the menu then cruises through hand-ground organic burgers, deep-fried ‘chickadee’ sandwiches with apple and poppyseed coleslaw, po’boys loaded with Cajun-spiced popcorn shrimps and the must-have ‘orange blossom’ (a battered, spiced onion sculpted to resemble a flower). Also don’t miss the Duffin sundae (a baked doughnut muffin with French ice cream, butterscotch and fudge sauce, whipped cream and a cherry on top). To drink, there are shakes, floats, Southern quenchers and beers from Wandsworth’s Belleville Brewing Co.

  1. Stax diner is a new venture from Bea Vo, lauded baker and founder of upmarket bakery Bea's of Bloomsbury. Ostensibly it's a diner-cum-soul food joint, located upstairs in the relatively newly renovated Kingly Market, between Carnaby Street and Kingly street, and the space is quite fun. Window bars, canteen tables, and an open kitchen define the space, but it's a small space, and oddly the kitchen fridge is in the dining room. There's some serious space maximisation going on...

  2. I was fortunate to be invited to go to Stax Diner last week. Stax has recently opened in Kingly Court off Carnaby Street and was opened by Bea Vo. Bea has opened this place to be an all day place. I went as I was tempted by the Stax Burger. Very interesting take on the onion rings here. The light batter and onion formed like a flower break in your mouth with a gentle crisp. It looks delightful and is recommended for about 2 people which I think is ideal. Works as a side and as a starter...

  3. Bea Vo, creator of Bea’s of Bloomsbury & more recently weekend diner at Maltby Street, decided to branch out and open an all American style diner. I’m a massive fan of Bea’s cakes especially her red velvet creation, (a trillion times better than Hummingbird’s, go see for yourself if you haven’t already). Now if Bea makes American grub as well as she makes cakes, then I was in for a treat! A few days before its official opening, I headed on down to see if this diner would stand out amongst the explosion of American style restaurants London is currently experiencing. Just behind Carnaby Street, StaxDiner is located in Kingly Court, a prime spot...
