From the duo behind The Palomar comes Jacob the Angel

Zoë and Layo Paskin (the siblings behind The Palomar and The Barbary) are opening a tiny (and we do mean tiny!) English coffee house in Seven Dials. Jacob the Angel with have just 10 covers and serves breakfast, lunch and tea every day, with takeaway options. It opens its doors at 16 1⁄2 Neal’s Yard on Wednesday 30 August and we’ve got all the menu details right here…

The food offering has been carefully created by head chef Daniela Gattegno, recently sous chef at The Barbary and previously at Ottolenghi, Moro and Morito. The menu will be simple and delicious: freshly baked cakes, pastries and pies, generously filled sandwiches and seasonal salads.

 For breakfast: chia, turmeric and medjool date bircher or whipped feta, honey and walnuts on sourdough. At lunch, highlights include butternut squash, sweet onion and sage quiche and a chicken, rose harissa, coriander and whipped feta sandwich.

Throughout the day the counter will be laden with all kinds of sweet treats, from tahini madeleines and passion fruit marshmallows to peanut butter blondies and co ee and walnut cakes. On top of all this – coconut cream pies, available as individual pies for one. For now the kitchen plan to make just thirty per day.

Coffee comes courtesy of London’s award winning Square Mile Coffee Roasters, British charcuterie from Cannon & Cannon, Hackney based Newton & Pott for jams and gin-pickled treats, Swaledale for British game and pork and The Dusty Knuckle Bakery for bread. Not forgetting the neighbours of course, Neal’s Yard Dairy, who will provide all of their cheese.
