Tucked away in Highams Park, East London, is a little taste oasis. Deli and café Pantry & Co may be small but its vision is broad with a veritable wealth of goodies, from local producers to continental artisans.
As well as regular lines, Pantry & Co is always adding new treats so it’s always worth checking in to see what’s new. A fresh bakery section is stocked daily with delicious bread from Karaway, and homemade cakes and pastries from the local E5 Bakehouse (give in to temptation if any vanilla cream doughnuts are still available!). Savoury snacks, including pork pies and sausage rolls from the likes of Ginger Pig and Brays, are also worth a taste. There is a fantastic cheese selection from Mons Cheese and Neal’s Yard—perfect to go with the charcuterie and other meats on offer.
There are lots of local and continental store-cupboard delights filling the shelves—from pastas and preserves to pickles (try some pickled watermelon if it’s in stock), as well as biscuits and artisan chocolate, which make good gifts. And if you accidentally leave the house without an emergency bag of cheese puffs, the small Ella’s Kitchen section means that little ones are taken care of.
