Following on from the success of The MaE Deli on Seymour Place and MaE on Weighhouse Street, Deliciously Ella is going for lucky number three and opening The Kitchen Counter in Herne Hill.
You’ll find it just outside Herne Hill station, (ideal for when you haven’t made breakfast and need to grab something healthy on your commute) in one of the railway arches. Light and airy, the focus will be on a bespoke shelving feature that spans the width and height of the arch, behind which will sit the open plan pastry kitchen. As well as window counters and stools, there’ll be a large sharing table for communal eating.
Serving up an all-day menu, The Kitchen Counter is an extension of the development kitchen so you’ll find classic dishes like the sweetcorn fritters with baked beans and smashed avocado and the fudgy brownies, but you’ll also find new additions to the menu. These include freshly made rye sandwiches, new almond and blueberry protein balls and a children’s menu with dishes like roasted polenta sticks with tomato sauce and a platter of falafel, hummus, carrot and celery sticks.
It will of course stick to the ethos of Natural. Simple. Honest with the menu being entirely free from wheat, dairy, additives and refined sugar. Forget about clean eating, it’s just delicious eating.
