Storey’s Gate Café in St James’s Park will open on 9th September, bringing London’s first health-focussed park café to the capital. The café is a collaboration between artisan family brand, Colicci, and The Royal Parks and will use a range of locally sourced ingredients.
The health-focussed menu will offer a large choice of vegan and veggie options. Breakfast and brunch dishes include Crunchy Coconut Bircher Muesli; Acai Bowl topped with seasonal berries, coconut shavings, cacao nibs, goji berries, chia seeds and pecans; or an almond chia pot with cinnamon, cashew cream, raspberry compote and coconut chips.
For lunch, the café offers a selection of hot and cold dishes such as Soft Chili Cheese on sourdough; Roast Butternut Squash with red onion, tahini and za’atar; and daily soups. The café also offers a selection of juices including the Green + Glow and Berry Blast, smoothies, coffees and gelato.
The new structure, designed by Article Design Studios, will use methods and finishes that are sympathetic and complement the existing and adjacent architectural details, with a warmer tonal palette which draws inspiration from the autumnal colours found in St James’s Park. The interiors will be clean, elegant and inviting, using hexagonal shapes and limited timber.
