Artisan baker Foxcroft & Ginger has opened a specialist poached egg bar in Dalston, east London. 

It is in vintage retailer Beyond Retro on Stoke Newington Road and is the first of its kind in London.

It serves a range of dishes using its speciality, including: eggs benedict; poached eggs with sweet potato scone, chorizo and chermoula sauce; poached eggs with herb roasted mushrooms, béchamel, truffle oil, nut crumble, parmesan on sourdough toast; and poached eggs with smoked haddock, caramelised cheese sauce, parmesan, on sourdough.

Foxcroft & Ginger will achieve consistency by slow-cooking the eggs at 63 degrees for ‘perfect yolks’.
Other products will be available as well as those at the egg bar, such as the baker’s The Roasting Party coffee, along with freshly made sourdough bread, salads, pastries, sandwiches, and cakes including their signature Cruffins - the croissant muffin hybrid.

The new café will feature the same industrial-chic design as Foxcroft & Ginger’s Whitechapel and Soho branches, with an additional outside seating area for sunny days.
