The Gentlemen Baristas opens flagship sixth site at East India Docks

The Gentlemen Baristas has opened a flagship coffee house at London’s East India Docks.

Serving food all day, the 70 cover site is Edward Parkes and Henry Ayers sixth coffee house, bringing together a roastery and restaurant at the Republic development.

Designed to recreate coffee houses of old, which engage the community in one service led operation, it will be open for breakfast – serving the likes of smoky house beans, chorizo, peppers, spring onions, sour cream and sourdough toast – lunch and dinner.

Lunch will focus on sandwiches and salads, such as truffle mushroom melt, containing garlic butter, truffle mushrooms, and three cheeses; while the dinner menu will feature a range of small plates including mussels in cider cream with skinny fries alongside natural wines, craft beers and cocktails.

The East India Docks site will also host a range of events including cupping sessions, cocktail masterclasses and supper clubs.

Co-owner Ed Parkes said: “This site is our most diverse yet and feels like the culmination of everything the Gentlemen Baristas is about – a welcoming place for outstanding coffee, great service, and conversation.

“Being situated in Republic is great to build a community within East India Docks and we hope to become the beating heart of this exciting, thriving area.”
