SquareMeal 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.

Alice S. bronze reviewer 17 August 2015

I've been to Foxcroft and Ginger a couple of times now for brunch, and I'll happily go back a hundred more times! It has a nice open space, with comfortable seating both indoors and outdoors. The staff are young and friendly and the service is good. I had the french toast with plum, mascarpone and honey combs. Wow. Absolutely delicious! The toast was really thick and moist, and the plum was nice and sweet. Accompanied with the honeycomb and mascarpone is a genius combination. They make good coffees too which get you ready for the day ahead!
