Foxcroft & Ginger Whitechapel

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.

Best Breakfast Ever!

Editor's pick 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...

    Got To Be Gourmet :: Breakfast at Foxcroft & Ginger, Whitechapel | Got To Be Gourmet Food Blog

    Breakfast or brunch might just be my favourite meal of the day (provided it’s done right, of course, which usually means with plenty of meat and bread, in my case!)
    And there are lots of great spots to go for breakfast around where I live in East London. A while ago, I noticed a place called ‘Foxcroft & Ginger‘ in Whitechapel when I was passing on the bus, and had been meaning to give it a go. So when I was offered the chance to try out their breakfast last week, I was really looking forward to it...

    Foxcroft and Ginger is the love child (as well as their other actual child) of Quinten (Foxcroft) and Georgina (a redhead) who met whilst working in a café in Clapham. With Quinten’s extensive experience in the restaurant business and Georgina’s multi-tasked magic in making numbers add up, doing HR and running back of house, the couple have created a relaxed and stylish establishment adorned with industrial chic pieces with reclaimed wood, galvanised steel and my personal favourite – squirrel cage Edison light bulbs.

    The first branch of this café-restaurant opened its doors in Soho, right slap bang in...
