Hideaway | Chelsea Pop Up
Ollie Dabbous’ latest restaurant, Hide, has become so popular…
…he’s had to create a Hideaway.
Currently billed as a pop up (though almost certainly here to stay), it’s a lite version of his Michelin-starred Piccadilly eatery, serving breakfast, lunch and early evening drinks in a tranquil spot just off Sloane Square.
The double height space is bordered by vast, floor-to-ceiling arched windows that flood the place with light. Outside is a huge kitchen garden that supplies many of the ingredients, and the whole café has an appropriately natural feel to match, with counters fronted by bark, plants spilling out of every corner, and furnishings in rustic hues of green and brown.
On the menu, you’ll find freshly baked pastries in the morning, from buckwheat pain au chocolat and chamomile pastel de nata to cherry blossom kougelhopf (a ring-shaped cake from Central Europe). For something a bit more substantial later in the day, you can put together a feast of puy lentil and crisp vegetable salad; London-cured smoked salmon with basil crème fraîche; a cheeseboard with fig and hibiscus chutney and toasted rye bread; and their signature croque monsieur with flakes of shaved black truffle.
And to wash it all down? Fancy tea and coffee from Mariage Frères and Union Coffee Roasters, as well as a hand-picked selection of bottles from Dabbous’ side-hustle, Hedonism Wines.
Luckily they’re not hiding the best of those away.
NOTE: Hideaway is open weekdays (9am-5pm) and weekends (10am-5pm). There’s no reservations, just turn up. You can find out more HERE.
