Upmarket cake shop and café chain Konditor & Cook has opened its sixth outlet near London’s Southbank.
Located on Stamford Street, the shop’s layout is inspired by “a new take on the domestic kitchen”, which has been designed to showcase its best-known cakes and savouries.
Personalised wedding cake consultations will take place at the shop, and a spokesperson for the firm confirmed that there are still plans in the pipeline to also run baking classes.
The shop was designed by architect Kevin Allsop, and aims to create a friendly atmosphere where the division between customers and staff is broken down. There are no counters separating staff and customers and the hob, sink and kitchen paraphernalia is on full view.
Owner Gerhard Jenne, who came up with the idea for the shop, said: “People who work from home have access to their kitchens, but need a home office, while those who work in offices also need the relaxed ambience of a domestic kitchen for a good chin-wag and to get their creative juices flowing.”
