Pop-up Cadbury Creme Egg café to open in London

A pop-up Cadbury Creme Egg café is to open in central London, with bookings being taken online from tomorrow (19 January).

The three-storey site at 26 Greek Street will operate for just seven weeks from 22 January, with dishes including a Creme Egg toastie (toasted bread sandwiched together with a Creme Egg), Creme Egg and soldiers, Creme Egg brownie tray bake, and mini Creme Eggs with strawberries, reports The Metro.

Bookings will be taken on ticketing website Eventbrite, although there will also be a small number of seats reserved for walk-ins.

The Creme Egg, created by Cadbury - whose parent company is US snack group Mondelez - has come in criticism recently after it admitted in January last year it had replaced the egg's Dairy Milk shell for what a spokesperson called "standard cocoa mix chocolate", which was "similar, but not exactly Dairy Milk".

The chocolate-themed site is not the first "gimmick" venue in London in recent years, which have also included a cereal café, the pop-up named #FryHard (in which everything, including Creme Eggs, was deep-fried), and Alpine-themed Le Chalet from Des McDonald Restaurants on the roof of Selfridge's department store.
