Burberry opens a café in London
The British label wants you to eat, drink, shop and be social
Burberry has opened a café within its flagship store on Regent Street, London. Called Thomas's, after founder Thomas Burberry, the two-storey café is a stylish mix of black-and-white marble floors, dark wood furnishings and large windows that look out onto Sackville Street.
The all-day British menu includes salads, lobster, chips, scrambled eggs with salmon and Mersea rock oysters. Meanwhile, there is also a gifting area that offers home-furnishing items and stationery, as well as pouches and tote bags printed with the London map that are exclusive to the Regent Street boutique.
According to Burberry's CEO and creative director Christopher Bailey, the goal was to create a place where customers could shop, relax and socialise at the same time. Well, a good cup of coffee is exactly what we need after a long day of shopping and thanks to Burberry we can have just that (at least in London, for now).
