Costa Fresco’s new food range featuring Charlie Bigham’s and Cartmel
Costa, the nation’s favourite coffee shop, has launched a new range of hot lunches and puddings exclusively at their London concept store, Costa Fresco.
I blogged about going to Costa Fresco a few months ago. The food was good and the coffee was as great as it always is.
In response to the growing public desire for choice and quality in the lunch category, Costa Fresco has introduced hot dishes from luxury brand Charlie Bigham’s and handmade dessert creators Cartmel.
They look absolutely delicious, as you can see from the photos.
The Charlie Bigham’s lunches include Macaroni Cheese, Fish Pie and Lasagne which will be sold at £6.50 per portion.
The Cartmel desserts on offer are Sticky Toffee Pudding and Sticky Chocolate Pudding at £2.45 each.
Meals will be baked fresh in-store and served hot from the hot-held unit while desserts will be chilled and heated for customers on purchase.
The new offering extends the Costa Fresco menu, which features handcrafted ciabattas and pastries, fresh soups and salads alongside Costa’s famous Mocha Italia blend which goes into their handcrafted barista-made coffee.
Carol Welch, Global Brand and Innovation Director commented:
Our Costa Fresco store was inspired by the Costa brothers’ passion for delicious food so we’re proud to be working with Charlie Bigham’s and Cartmel to expand our menu.
We know that our customers want quality food with their coffee, and we’re confident the addition of these delicious products to our menu will give them yet more choice and expand our hot food offer.
I was invited along to try the new food but, unfortunately, due to the Niki n Sammy YouTube Space London event running longer than expected, I couldn’t get there (much to my annoyance, as I was hungry, and my shame as I left someone waiting longer that they needed to!)
My campaign to get Whitbread to bring Costa Fresco to Chelmsford starts here!
The new range is available at Costa Fresco, 190 Tottenham Court Road, W1T 7LH.
Costa Fresco is open 6:30 – 20:00 Monday to Friday, 7:30 – 19.30 Saturday and 8:00 – 19.30 Sunday.
