Euphorium Bakery is poised to open a new flagship bakery and café on Threadneedle Street in London's Bank district, which will offer a carvery menu alongside its usual baked fare.
Officially opening to the public on 7 October with a soft launch on 16 Sptember, the new store will offer a selection of slow-roasted meat sandwich fillings. Lunchtime choices will include Scottish roast beef and mustard in a brioche bap; lemon and herb turkey plus cheddar, bacon and tomatoes in a ciabatta roll; crispy suckling pig and apple; or roast lamb, sweet peppers and mint jelly, both in freshly-baked focaccia.
Founded and owned by Daniel Bear in 1999, Euphorium began as a single bakery in Islington. Serving freshly-baked breads, cakes, pastries and coffee, it has now spread to 13 locations across London and the UK, including Kensington, Belsize Park and Hampstead, as well as six bakeries in branches of Tesco and Tesco Express.
Each of its shops and cafés is still supplied with freshly-made produce from the Islington bakery.
A mezzanine floor will act as the hub for a new coffee bar, which will serve the brand's two own house blends, as well as recommending a new "guest" flavour to try every month.
