You can find D&D-owned Haugen overlooking the Olympic Park in Stratford where it serves a menu that takes inspiration from Alpine dining. The name of the restaurant pays homage to Anders Haugen, a winter Olympic ski jumper from 1924 who had to wait 50 years to finally be awarded his bronze medal. The venue spans three floors, from an all-day restaurant to a rooftop bar and multiple outdoor terraces, where it serves comforting favourites from fondue to schnitzel.
Located on the ground floor, Haugen Deli is open from 8am to 4pm where it serves a wealth of breakfast and brunch options. Take your pick from a selection of hot breakfast dishes which includes things like eggs Arlington (rosti, hollandaise sauce, chives and smoked salmon), a Haugen breakfast bap (rosti, crispy bacon, fried egg and house sauce) and smoked salmon, eggs and smashed avocado. There is also a selection of pastries from the viennoiserie, while lighter options on the menu feature bircher muesli with apples and strawberries and granola with vanilla yoghurt and maple syrup. Discover sweet and savoury crepes too, including an Alpine-inspired option made with speck, fondue mixed cheese, sun-blushed tomatoes and rocket, and an indulgent sweet creation filled with white chocolate crème, bananas, peanut brittle and Chantilly cream.
To drink, guests can find a trio of fruity smoothies along with expertly hand-brewed coffee and a variety of teas, juices and soft drinks.
Haugen Deli, similarly to the rest of the venue, has been designed to evoke an atmosphere reminiscent of the Alpine chalets, with wooden ceilings, faux fur throws and large windows to let in plenty of light. The wooden structure of the building has been created by Acme, while the interior design is led by award-winning design studio Afroditi Krassa.
