Opening on 24 June, the 70-seat corner site will offer the same menu as the Quarter Group’s debut café in Chelsea - a modern mix of seasonal, healthy comfort food including homemade bread and pastries.
Valeria Zilkha, who founded the Quarter Group in 2006 with husband Doron, told BigHospitality that they do have plans to open more outlets, with a look to move to the next venture at the right time.
“Our locations have to be very unique, so it’s not easy but it always comes at the right time for the Quarter Group,” she said. “The Quarter Brand is very expansive, as well as cafés, we will be looking to expand towards restaurants and bakeries as well.
“At this stage we are looking for a bakery location as the demand for our produce has outgrown our space capacity at the moment.”
