A Sweet Touch

London is set to open its first dessert restaurant at The Café of iconic Café Royal on Regent Street. With menus created by executive pastry chef Sarah Barber, the dessert restaurant will feature a selection of exquisite tasting menus all served with optional wine pairing and available from 6-10.30pm daily.


As the perfect choice to conclude a dinner or to celebrate a special occasion, each carefully orchestrated menu will include a range of savoury bites to prepare the palate, before offering a unique journey of sweet plates all highlighting Sarah’s creative skill and imagination, as well as her contemporary, playful style.


The Sarah in Wonderland menu will feature five courses, starting with savouries such as the Milky Way, with goat’s cheese, wild honey and beetroot snow; and Chicken Foie with quince and brioche. Guests will then experience a journey of Sarah’s Alice in Wonderland inspired desserts: Queen of Hearts (raspberries, Champagne and roses); Mad Hatter (BFG, kirsch and cherries) and Eat Me, Drink Me (Snickers, chocolate malt shake).


Three-course Childhood Memories menus will also be available, comprising Sarah’s take on nostalgic favourites such as Rhubarb & Custard and Jaffa Cakes. Furthermore, the Pick n Mix menu will allow guests to make their selection of four dishes, with savouries such as White Rabbit with Acapella cheese, artichokes and black truffle; and Salmon Tart with silky avocado. Desserts on the Pick n Mix menu will include the Jaffa Cake; Eat Me, Drink Me and Queen of Hearts. Wine flights will be available to accompany each menu.


The opening of the evening dessert restaurant will run alongside the launch of Sarah’s new day food and drink menus in The Café, with the finest breakfasts, light lunches, afternoon teas, hot drinks and wines available from 8am to 6pm daily. Furthermore, the Pâtisserie will offer petit gâteau such as Pistachio & apricot mille feuille; Strawberry lemon candy cane; Raspberry rose sphere; and large entrements such as Strawberry crispy mousse with almond sponge and lemon curd and Black Forest gâteau with chocolate mushrooms.


With its primary entrance located on London’s vibrant Regent Street, The Café is an impressive space made from golden Siena marble, which by day offers guests the opportunity to celebrate the great European tradition of café culture. As the historic entrance of the hotel, The Café echoes the heritage of Café Royal as a favourite London spot for epicureans, intellectuals, locals and for those visiting from further afield.
