Wow, it was cold on Wednesday. I wrapped myself head to toe in my cosiest cosies and headed off to Soho to meet my brother for brunch at Foxcroft & Ginger.
Foxcroft & Ginger is a cosy and quirky café on Berwick Street in the heart of bustling Soho and right by Berwick Street Market – one of London’s oldest markets. So you can pick up your organic apples, vintage dresses, retro cushions and slightly dodgy extension leads if you’re waiting for a table…
I immediately de-cosied myself and ordered a coffee while I waited for my brother, who was on his way and heading up Berwick Street…
Ben (brother) arrived and it took us a little longer than expected to choose what we wanted to eat – the menu was great and full of deliciousness. Which is no wonder, seeing as the ethos of Foxcroft & Ginger is founded upon the principles of great British food; everything on the menu is made in-house with locally sourced ingredients. They even make their own sourdough bread, using premium flour direct from the mill.
The menu has everything on it, from French toast with mascarpone, poached plum, honeycomb and bacon.. to Boston beans, pulled pork, eggs on sourdough… (swoon) as well as your well loved breakfast and brunch staples.
… Ben chose Eggs Benedict with pulled pork…
The food was all very yummy.. and everything that I could see around the cafe, from the pretty jars of loose leaf tea, to the wide selection of cakes and pastries on offer looked just as yummy to me..
We paused a little after our eggs… and then decided to share a plate of granola and fruit – Gingers Granola, Spiced Poached Fruit, Yoghurt, Vanilla, Rosemary Honey and Seeds, to be completely precise…
Foxcroft & Ginger takes its name from its owners, Quintin and Georgina. Quintin’s family name is Foxcroft while his wife Georgina is a proud redhead. After spending over a decade opening successful restaurants and bars for other companies, they took the plunge and opened Foxcroft & Ginger in Soho in January 2010.. and for those of you over in East London, you can do a little whoop, as they’ve recently opened their second branch in Whitechapel.
Foxcroft & Ginger is open all day long, for brekky, brunch, lunch and dinner… or just for tea and cake. Their sourdough pizzas are their pride and joy, (and they start at just £4.95!) and a bit of Foxcroft and Ginger’s heart and soul is in everything on the menu.
I love the name, I love the location, I love the vibe and I love the food.
It’s a goodie ;)

We were guests of Foxcroft & Ginger, and if I hadn’t loved it, I wouldn’t have written about it.
