East-meets-west fusion cafe concept opens in WC2

Apple Butter Cafe, a heart-warming concept neatly tucked away on London's Monmouth Street in WC2, has just opened, providing an oasis of calm away from the circus of Seven Dials.

The concept has been created by successful Middle Eastern-born business operators and brothers Saleh and Mohammad Alayan, alongside Faycal Abdel Khalek. Collectively bringing years of experience, passion and success with all things hospitality, the trio chose the heart of London to launch their debut east-meets-west fusion cafe concept.

Apple Butter Cafe offers an all-day dining menu, and comes complete with an ultimately instagrammable apple tree, planted centre stage.

Open Monday to Sunday, 8am until 9pm, the 65-cover hot spot with a cosy front terrace serves a wide range of specialty coffee alongside gourmet sandwiches and salads, indulgent Middle-Eastern inspired desserts and daily freshly-baked cakes and pastries.

Dishes include Goat Labneh Salad – complete with Mesclun, baby spinach, caramelised walnuts, goji berries, balsamic dressing, and Chicken Yakitori – served with honey mustard mayo, baby rocket, pickles and soya sesame oil.

To finish, there's the signature Lotus Flower dessert – filled with chocolate ganache, chocolate chips, topped with ice cream and caramel sauce.

Apple Butter Cafe serves up Cold Brew coffee, which is brewed in room temperature, for 8-12 hours for the best tasting coffee.

With quality and taste at its core, Apple Butter Cafe will also offer a full gluten-free and diary-free range to suit all tastes.
