If you thought we’d reached peak niche café, you’re wrong: a new poached egg bar is the foodie haunt you never knew you needed. It comes from the people at Foxcroft & Ginger and will be hosted at Beyond Retro’s Dalston store on Stoke Newington Road.
The new café will serve a range of fancy poached egg dishes, including eggs benedict, poached eggs with sweet potato scone and poached eggs with roasted mushrooms. And it’s not just fancy toppings, these guys have got their egg technique down: they’re cooked sous-vide at exactly 63 degrees for an hour to to ensure your yolks are perfectly runny.
As well as chilling at the indoor café with rustic interior, you can also enjoy your eggs alfresco with outdoor seating outside the BR store.
If you’re a fan of Foxcroft & Ginger’s Whitechapel and Soho branches, you’ll be pleased to know the Stokey pop-up will be serving up the same coffee – from The Roasting Party – as well as guest blends from the best roasters around. There’s also yummy baked goods like their sourdough bread pastries, sandwiches, and cakes including their signature Cruffins. All great for getting you fuelled up before you go rummaging for vintage finds.
Foxcroft & Ginger @ Beyond Retro, 92–100 Stoke Newington Road, N16 7XB.
