Euphorium Bakery: The great City bake-off

Euphorium Bakery, one of London’s oldest artisan bakeries has opened a new flagship bakery and café in the City’s Threadneedle Street this week. Located a stone’s throw from Bank tube station, the branch promises to bring the best of British baking to its new location.

With hand-baked pastries and breads, freshly made sandwiches and salads, gourmet coffee, cakes and a new hot carvery, customers can choose from a counter or dining area for breakfast meetings and relaxed lunches while there will be a handy grab-and-go section for busy City workers. Interior design features the bakery’s classic urban village concept with handmade wooden tables and traditional furnishings.

Bakery owner and founder, Daniel Bear launched a simple store on Islington’s Upper Street in 1999. It quickly became famous for baking its wares from scratch every day and soon spawned further shops and cafés across north London.

The new carvery serves freshly baked breads crammed with the finest cuts of British sourced, slow roasted meats including hot breakfast sandwiches filled with bacon carved straight from the joint. The lunch menu features 28 Day Matured Scottish Roast Beef Rib – wholegrain mustard, gherkin, beef tomato, horseradish cream, served on brioche bap, Lemon and Herb Roast Turkey – cheddar, crispy bacon, cucumber, sundried tomatoes, served on a ciabatta bun and Lincolnshire Crispy Sucking Pig – sweet apple balsamic, crispy fresh apples, pickled cabbage, horseradish cream, served on a herb focaccia.

A mezzanine floor will house a gourmet coffee bar run by head barista Anthony Khouri. Working closely with Italian coffee connoisseurs Kimbo, Euphorium Bakery has created two bespoke house blends, and will also offer a different guest blend of coffee each month.
