Our story

Founded in December 2015 by Leith’s School of Food and Wine-trained Kate Frobisher, Urban Pantry has thrived ever since, winning Best Brunch Place in Chiswick' at the TimeOut Awards and claiming Best Breakfast of the Year at the 2019 National Breakfast Awards to be put firmly on the London foodie map.

 

In 2021, the cafe was bought by avid Urby P customer Crystal Eisinger. Leaving the corporate world of Google behind, Crystal wanted to combine her love for Urban Pantry with her passion for food to carry on the legacy that the Chiswick institution has created, as well as to create a space to not just enjoy brunch, but come together as a community.

Our core values of five-star food with five-star service mean that we strive to give customers the tastiest brunch combined with an experience to match.

 

Our relaxed and welcoming vibe mean whether it’s a quick coffee and chat or a celebratory brunch, we’ve got you covered.
