Ginger & White is a British themed coffee shop which prides itself on its artisan produce and espresso based coffee. In July 2009 three friends who were fed up with the "pints of milky nothingness" they were being served set up the first Ginger & White in Hampstead. As parents themselves, food stylist Tania George and restaurant managers Emma and Nicholas Scott have created a family friendly cafe with chips and ice cream for the kids and alcohol on offer for the grown-ups. The menu changes with the seasons but you can usually get salted beef, smoked salmon sandwiches, all the coffee formats - flat white, mocha and latte - and some seriously good sweet things including lemon drizzle and ginger loaf with a thick layer of icing sugar on top. They're clearly doing something right given how busy it gets, especially on the weekends when you may well have to queue up for your share of the communal table. If you like Ginger & White Hampstead, you'll be pleased to know you can find two further branches in Belsize Park and Soho.
