The original location for Hardware Société – which expanded into a second spot on Katherine Place in 2019 – closed in February of this year. It hasn’t remained empty – for a while it housed a pop-up for homewares concept store Made & More.
Now it’s back serving food and coffee, but in a different form. Le Sandwich is a new pop-up by the Hardware Société team, with familiar faces from the OG cafe behind the counter and in the kitchen.
There’s croque madame two ways – with confit duck and a fried egg or mushroom duxelles and truffled bechamel. The lobster roll includes lobster-and-prawn gribiche with a smoked egg, and there’s a decadent number with tomato tartare and stracciatella. Plus, the cafe’s signature baked eggs return in a roll with chorizo, and there are house-made treats such as salted-caramel rice pudding, chocolate brownies and baked cheesecake.
From 9am daily.
