Monday 6 September sees the launch of an exclusive 6-month residency of Matthew Jones’ prolific bakery Bread Ahead at Southwark Cathedral Cafe
A short walk from Borough Market, where Jones opened the very first Bread Ahead back in 2013, the residency will run until February 2022 and is set to showcase a number of new menu items.
The café will be open daily from 8.30am – 6.00pm serving breakfast, lunch and high tea, with a seasonal menu that will highlight the very best of British produce. A selection of traditional breakfast dishes all made fresh on site will include the Bread Ahead bacon sandwich, and poached eggs & smashed avocado on freshly baked sourdough among other plates. Freshly baked patisserie, including Bread Ahead’s signature doughnuts and cinnamon buns will take centre stage in the late morning. Salads, soups made from locally sourced vegetables, and light sandwiches can be selected for lunch, ahead of a high tea which is served in the afternoon.
A curated list of wines and beers, as well as hot & cold drinks will be on offer throughout the day.
The Dean of Southwark, the Very Revd Andrew Nunn, commenting on the arrival of Bread Ahead, said ‘We are looking forward to working even more closely with these amazing bakers who have been such supportive friends already with our annual Lammas Day service and their participation in so many community events. This promises to be a delicious six months!’
