REVIEW: Foxcroft & Ginger, Whitechapel

foxcroft and ginger whitechapel ham and cheese toastie

Not just your average cafe, Foxcroft & Ginger in both Whitechapel and more recently Soho never fail to make a quick drink turn into something more, with freshly-made pizzas and a good wine list for the evening and a mesmerizing selection of fresh pastries, open sandwiches and breads by day. Exposed brick and reclaimed wood – so far, so average – but it’s the food that really sings.

Breakfast or brunch is the best time to visit in our book (weekdays 8-12, weekends 9-4) because you can kick back with a coffee from The Roasting Party (or something stronger – come on, it’s Saturday) while chefs prepare what can only be described as London’s best ham & cheese toastie.

Sadly not available after 4pm, it’s worth a daytime trip alone – an oozing, doorstop-thick, French-toast, maple syrup calorie-fest that’ll stick in your thoughts for days. Other breakfast offerings include beans, eggs, mushrooms and bacon stuffed between said bread (another winner) and smashed avocado and salmon on sourdough with a drizzle of balsamic.

Head here with the morning papers for a superior brunch that won’t break the bank – most of the menu hovers around the £7-£8 mark, which is a steal compared to neighbouring cafes of similar quality.

Address: 69-79 Mile End Road, Whitechapel, E1 4TT
