LOUIE LOUIE  is a cafe during the day with excellent coffee, homemade cakes & sandwiches, guest chefs in the evenings  plus all day brunch at the weekends.

May Bank Holiday brunch bonanza… You can enjoy weekend brunch with us on Monday 28 May, featuring all the classics + a brand new cocktail list (…after all, brunch is the socially acceptable excuse for daytime drinking!). Book a table here

In the evening… we transform into a bar & restaurant featuring rotating Chefs In Residence preparing a broad range of cuisines from NY to Iran, Tel Aviv to Oaxaca, Peckham to Hiroshima (see below), natural wines and local beers. On selected Sunday evenings, we operate supper clubs with WeFiFo .

New evening chef in residence… from Tuesday 15 May, Japanese chef Fumio Tanga and his Sho Foo Doh outfit take over for 5 weeks, specialising in Hiroshima style Okonomiyaki pancakes, complemented by some awesome contemporary Japanese dishes. We kick off with a sweet dealio, which will be on offer every Tuesday: any Okonomiyaki from the menu+ a glass of house wine or Orbit draft beer or a soft drink = £15. Click here for the latest menu.

In Fumio’s own words …

“There are a few different okonomiyaki styles in different regions in Japan. The most popular and well-known one worldwide is the Osaka-style, which is a more doughy pancake where all the ingredients are mixed into the batter. Hiroshima-style on the other hand is more layered, starting with a thin crepe, loads of vitamin K boosting cabbages, beanshoots, pork belly, egg noodles and an omelette, with sauce and scallions on top. Basically Hiroshima-style is more substantial, yet lighter, and infinitely better than Osaka- style. I’m absolutely not biased.”

At the weekends… DJs play through a bespoke vintage HiFi system with the emphasis firmly on great music and excellent sound quality.

Late Night Louie… our naughty basement is open between 7 pm & 1 am, Friday & Saturday for cocktails and lounge lizard vibes. You can reserve a booth by clicking here or calling 020 7450 3223. The space is also for hire for private parties of up to 40 guests every evening for drinks & food (check out our party menu here)
