Euphorium Bakery is not your average bakery, forget the craze of huge iced cupcakes in pretty colours; this bakery is back-to-British basics with two staple foods - meat and bread. At the core of the bakery is its impressive selection of home-baked bread in all shapes, sizes, twists and seeds made with 'lots of love and compassion' - just what any good food needs.
The highlight of bakery is the hot 'off the bone' carvery with a choice of honey-baked back bacon or sausage baps in the morning, perfect for setting you up for a busy day. The breakfast menu sweeps into lunch with the addition of 28-day matured Scottish beef and lemon and herb roast turkey carvery, with all the added trimmings you would expect for a hearty sandwich.
There is a small coffee lounge upstairs with chunky dark brown leather sofas to slide down and relax over real coffee. Or, sit beside the long wooden tables with honeycomb shaped stools.
Downstairs, trendy bar stool seats are dotted along the running bar table. Perch here and look out through the huge glass windows onto London life outside; perfect for a keen people-watching spot.
Luxury breads are neatly aligned beneath an uneven group of suspended black bowler hats, emphasing the Britishness of the bakery in this new central London location.
Behind the attractive display of breads are the real treats. Savoury pastries and sweet pastries take up half of the glass counter, from huge fruit danishes to glazed apple strudels, sizable almond croissants to dainty pecan tarts. Tasters are cut up and left on the top of the counter for customers to try before they buy - a temptation too good to pass by!
Euphorium bakery was established in 1999, with its first store in Islington. The whole idea is to keep British baking true to its root and bring the best of baking back home to Blighty. Only using six ingredients, two of which are imaginary (love and compassion), the bakery prides its self on only natural ingredients.
There are actually 15 Euphorium bakery locations within London. Six are smaller bakeries within other well-known shops. Three main stores are still in the area where it all began in Islington, with another in the iconic Covent Garden.
