Perks & White is now open in St James’s Market, the brand’s first central London location. Situated in the heart of London, just steps away from Piccadilly Circus, Perks & White offers much-needed respite from busy, bustling streets. Offering specialist coffee, sweet pastries and a range of breakfast and lunch options prepared daily on-site, the friendly Perks & White is sure to become a new favourite in the area.
Jason Perks, co-founder of Perks & White says:
“We are thrilled to be expanding Perks & White into Central London; we strive to be authentic and honest in what we do, which we believe shines through in the coffee we serve and the fast and friendly service. Our South London customers tell us how much they love the quality of the coffee and atmosphere we have built; we are excited to create a new coffee community in the heart of Central London.”
With outstanding coffee at the forefront of Perks & White’s ethos, customers are guaranteed the very best specialty coffee. As long-standing partners, Perks & White and Volcano Coffee Works based in Brixton, have collaborated to create a bespoke house espresso exclusively for all of Perks & White’s locations; Volcano are 100% independent, and source beans directly. This ensures a direct relationship between Volcano and farmers, and that the coffee served is ethically sourced. Wherever possible, Perks & White strive to use local suppliers and producers; with food lovingly made by local artisans, such as St John Bakery, Tooting’s Food by Toby and dairy supplier, The Estate Dairy, who sustainably farm milk in the Bristol countryside.
Dickon White, co-founder, says:
“We are delighted to be opening a new site in a different area of London. It has been nine months of planning to get to where we are, and this process has been made all the more enjoyable by working with our trusted suppliers to ensure the quality of what we have built in South London, is maintained in the St James’s Market location.”
