POPHAMS HACKNEY

SHORTLISTED BY BISTRONAUT #12

WHO
Ollie Gold and Lucy McWhirter’s Islington bakery - with a cult following built on gorgeous pastries and weekend specials - has taken on the late Rawduck for their second outpost, near London Fields. Expect pastries in the morning, toasted sarnies at lunchtime and handmade pasta courtesy of head chef Phil King, comes dinner time.

FOOD
Morning treats:
27 layers of butter, yes please!
The Insta-famous, good-kind-of-fat-bursting bacon and maple croissant - £3.90
A luscious nectarine and ginger custard pastry - £3.80
Lunchtime:
Smoked raclette, schlossberger, onion jam toastie - £6
A tartine topped with sumac labneh, courgette ribbons, cherry tomatoes topped and toasted sesame seeds tartine, made on the house sourdough - £6
Pasta evenings:
Pretty and crunchy pickles (radish, fennel, courgette…) dipped in a creamy, anchovy-salty bagna cauda - £6
Punchy ‘nduja scarpinocc, broad beans and parsley - £11
Addictive taleggio cappelletti with macerated grapes and crunchy toasted hazelnuts - £10.50

DRINKS
Barista coffee during the day, natural wine at night!
Macchiato, cortado, flat white, chai latte… How do you like yours? - £2-3.20
A strawberry and black pepper kombucha - £3.50
A fruity 2018 Rosso Massieri cabernet blend by Angiolino Maule - £6.50
A sweet glass of 2017 Expression Vorbourg Pinot gris by Pierre Frick - £11

DÉCOR

Contemporary stripped-down, in keepingwith the Rawduck heritage: there’s concrete and light wood, a coffee counter, pastry ovens and bags of flour proudly on display, an open kitchen, and washed linen napkins.

NOISE

It’s kept nice and quiet, with music playing in the background.

SEATING

You’d better be in a sharing mood, as it’s mostly communal tables and benches with backrests. Otherwise, snap up one of the few bar stools overlooking the open kitchen. If you’re a baby good for you, your high chair awaits.

VIBE

Laid-back.

RESTROOMS

Here starts the maze!

SERVICE

Checking on you slightly too often, but super nice and friendly!
10% discretionary service charge added to your bill.

WOULD RECOMMEND

To pastry enthusiasts, Instageeks and carbs lovers.
