Found in the historical Ivory House – the only original warehouse to remain standing in St Katharine Docks – White Mulberries is gorgeous both inside and out.
Found just a short walk from Tower Bridge, there’s something very special about this place—and it’s not just their Espresso Martinis (we’ll get to those later). The shop was established back in 2012, and within just two years they were crowned London’s Best Coffee Shop at the Coffee Stop Awards. In one of the few good things to emerge from 2020, White Mulberries opened a second location in Hays Galleria just before the first lockdown hit, and it’s an equally gorgeous spot for a bite.
The menu features a delicious selection of freshly baked sweet and savoury dishes; including toasted banana bread and open sandwiches with all sorts of tasty toppings. Think almond butter, Nutella, banana and berries atop moist banana bread; or sourdough toast with harissa chickpea hummus, avocado, feta and walnut. The menu is mammoth—and I promise it’s not like anything you’ve seen elsewhere.
Besides excellent coffee, they also serve a brilliant selection of cocktails. This is where we talk about those E P I C Espresso Martinis, if you hadn’t guessed. They’re constantly changing up their offering, but they’ve been known to create some seriously droolworthy editions, including Pumpkin Spice Espresso Martinis, Peanut Butter & Salted Caramel Espresso Martinis, or their classic ‘dressed up’ Espresso Martinis topped with whipped cream, chocolate and dried raspberries. At £7, they’re worth every penny. Especially when you look out at the view…
