Loafing Cafe in Well Street Hackney, is to re-open on Saturday 6th June 2020 joining existing sister sites Loafing Victoria Park Village and Loafing Roman Road, which are already trading.

The three cafés are run and owned by East Londoner Susie Mc Duell and French-born Christophe Le Tynevez who supplies all the sites daily with freshly baked breads and artisan French patisserie from his bakery Boulangerie Jade.

Offering a menu-to-go only for now, Hackney locals can once again enjoy freshly brewed Flying Horse coffee (roasted locally in London Fields), a range of fruit juices and smoothies, accompanied by a daily selection of French breads, cakes and patisserie to take away.

Customers can pick up Boulangerie Jade’s house loaf Campaillou (Rustic French bread made from five grain mixed flour and sourdough) at the Well Street café, or for a wider range of breads and patisserie, simply order before 4pm daily for next day collection.

Highlights include Campaillette (rustic French stick made from wheat and sourdough) and classic ciabatta, focaccia and baguettes all made using the finest French flour and butter. In addition, a range of celebration cakes and desserts are available with 48 hours notice.

Christophe Le Tynevez, is an established baker having worked as head pastry chef at Quaglino’s and Mezzo and as head baker and manager at Comptoir Gascon amongst other roles before setting up his own French artisan bakery Boulangerie Jade in 2002.

Owner Susie Mc Duell said, “We’re excited to return to Hackney’s Well Street once again and to be able to supply locals with freshly baked artisan French breads, great coffee and lunch to go. We have further exciting plans underway and will be extending our offering as we slowly resume normal service. We’re looking forward to getting back up and running in the local community.”
