Also known as starflower, Borage’s vibrant blue bloom is the traditional Pimms garnish and is grown for oil with medicinal properties. The honey itself is unusually clear, delicate tasting and really rather incredible.¬†
Within a few years of the restaurant opening, Sally was able to acquire the building next door, which allowed not only the expansion of the seating area, but also ample space to create a retail outlet for the many baked items which were being prepared also for the restaurant menus.
Breads, sweet and savoury tarts, biscuits, cakes, muffins and chocolate truffles were first on the list and very soon soups, pasta sauces, salads and braises were added. A little cafe was created at the back and the takeaway coffee with a pastry was born!
Scroll forward to today, the shop is now situated directly across the street from the Restaurant, which includes the Corner Shop, serving delicious coffees and pastries from early morning each day. Our 2nd shop opened in September 2020 (mid pandemic!) on the corner of Portobello Road and Westbourne Grove.
