The Proud Archivist

Squaremeal Review of The Proud Archivist ?

Combining an art gallery, café, deli, bistro and community events space under one roof, this all-purpose venue beside the Regent’s Canal aims to echo and revive the traditions of London’s grand coffee houses. Entertainment, education, sustenance and conversation go hand in hand here, and the kitchen’s all-day offer takes in everything from Cobble Lane charcuterie or gnocchi with Stilton, spinach and walnuts to heritage burgers, sea bass with mussels and bouillabaisse sauce or pork belly with rhubarb compote. Breakfast and brunch also cover a lot of ground, from stacks of pancakes and sausage sarnies to pumpkin hash with black pudding and fried egg. Meanwhile, the deli and ‘tuck shop’ is fully stocked with muffins, cakes, pastries, Vietnamese salads, croque monsieur and more besides. The snappy, regularly changing wine list also promises lots of appealing possibilities.

It was perfect and perfectly cooked. The amount and presentation...
