The story of Popina can be traced back to the excitement that founder, Isidora Popovic experienced as a child when she visited farmers markets with her mother. The love and regard her family had for fresh, seasonal and local produce has stayed with her and is the inspiration behind this gorgeous bakery.

Hideaway is the creation of Ollie Dabbous, Michelin-starred chef and owner of Dabbous. It’s a modern day treasure with a selection of wonderful breakfast dishes that are hard to beat.

Their rolls and baguettes are well worth considering. If you want to keep it gorgeously simple, try the sausage roll & piccalilli. Early celebration or pick me up? Go for the Hideaway lobster roll.

Le Pain Quotidien
Quotidien literally means ‘daily bread’ but at this Belgian bakery, that’s just the beginning. For Le Pain Quotidien, it’s much more than filling up on breakfast fuel, it’s a way of life and this is definitely the place to gather with friends over a communal table and share the most important meal of the day. They may be bakers at heart – and you can choose from an abundance of handmade organic bread – but you’ll also find a selection of simple, wholesome and seasonal dishes, many of them plant-based. Their breakfasts are nourishing and delicious – and all ingredients are sourced locally and are organic wherever possible. Come and get set up for the day. 16 North Audley Street, Mayfair, London W1K 6WL.
