The 355sq ft space, secured by Restaurant Property, was previously occupied by The Dayrooms Café, which continues to operate at its original site on Kensington Park Road in Notting Hill.
Sushi Cupcake’s website says the concept was born out of a want ‘to create something unique that blends [Japanese and Italian] culture together’.
The new brand will offer a grab-and-go menu featuring the eponymous sushi cupcakes; noodle bowls; and Japanese-style breakfast dishes.
Fillings for the café’s hero dish include one with salmon tartare, cucumber, edamame, spring onions and wasabi soy dressing; and another with tofu, shitake, cabbage, edamame, spring onions, sesame, five spice and miso dressing.
There will also be a selection of desserts available including a matcha tiramisu; black sesame ice cream; and matcha panna cotta with berries.
“Whilst The Dayrooms Café needed to concentrate on their hugely popular and renowned café in Notting Hill, Sushi Cupcake took the opportunity to open their first site in a beautifully refurbished unit for their innovative concept and in line with their trendy fit out plans,” says Restaurant Property surveyors Danielle Agami and Gabriella Sether, who both acted on the deal.
