The Sunny Side Up Café By Veuve Clicquot To Open In Soho
Veuve Clicquot, the iconic Champagne House, is to celebrate its 250th anniversary by unveiling the Sunny Side Up Café by Veuve Clicquot serving eggs and Champagne to the public from Friday 22 April until Saturday 30 April, located at 59 Greek Street, London W1D 3DZ. This anniversary marks more than a milestone but is an ode to the joy and optimism that Veuve Clicquot stands for, and what better way to showcase this than with a British café with a stylish twist.
In the heart of Soho, the café will bring vibrancy and chic-ness to the classic greasy spoon. TV presenter and chef Andi Oliver brought her flavour to the hero dish, with the rest of the menu exploring classics with a Clicquot spin including egg and marmite soldiers, waffles and a spiced maple syrup and even a luxury bacon bap.
How do you like your eggs? Sunny Side Up with Veuve Clicquot champagne, of course! To fully enjoy the experience, guests will be greeted by the Sunny Sommelier – whose role will be to pair your menu choice with a glass, or bottle, of Veuve Clicquot. They will whizz though the café with their champagne trolley sharing entertaining anecdotes of the revered champagne house as Veuve Clicquot celebrates its 250th anniversary.
The yellow sunburst exterior on Greek Street will be hard to miss and once guests are inside they will be transported into the fun eatery. Inspired by Veuve Clicquot’s iconic ‘Yellow Label’ – the interior will nod to the traditional London café but with additional sunny and retro touches – from the condiments, to the Clicquot-yellow coffee cups, it will be fully Instagram-able and interactive.
The café’s hero dish features a special twist from Andi Oliver, the much-celebrated chef and TV personality. It is an elevated all day, egg inspired dish. ‘Andi’s Waffles’ are an absolute must-try and feature a fried egg, streaky bacon, confit cherry tomatoes, waffles & Andi’s spiced maple syrup. This unexpected but delicious dish is perfectly balanced with a glass of refreshing Yellow Label from Veuve Clicquot.
“I am so excited to work with Veuve Clicquot whose whole philosophy is about audacious women who defy the status quo, boldly and with aplomb! And that is something I identify with entirely. The vibrancy of their ethos and the iconic yellow is irresistible and contagious, not to mention the Champagne itself – a true delight!
The menu straddles the traditional British breakfast with a contemporary Veuve Clicquot accent , you’ll find this with my personal favourite dish of waffles, crisp streaky bacon and spiced maple syrup. There are also vegetarian options, takeaway rolls and a plethora of sides to indulge in. The entire food menu is complemented with Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label and Rosé – talk about your delicious!!” explains Andi Oliver.
To recruit the Café’s ‘Sunny Sommelier’, Veuve Clicquot collaborated with the Be Inclusive Hospitality network who champion equity, diversity and inclusion in the hospitality industry. Be Inclusive Hospitality’s mission is to drive education, amplify voices, build a strong community, and accelerate racial equality, which Veuve Clicquot is also committed to achieving. The Sunny Sommelier is an ambassador for our cause and an expert in their own right. Their enigmatic delivery will provide guests with an engaging explanation of the Veuve Clicquot Champagne available in the Sunny Side Up Café and will elevate the diner’s experience through their expertise.
The ambience will be elevated yet further with a curated selection of ‘Sunny Sound Tracks’ including an exclusive rendition of ‘Good Day Sunshine’ commissioned by Veuve Clicquot as part of its ‘Solaire’ 250th Anniversary celebration from Canadian music artist, Charlotte Cardin.
So join us at The Sunny Side Up Café for whichever way you like your eggs in the morning, but this time with a sunny side serving of Veuve Clicquot.
