Olie & Ari
Olie & Ari was renovated entirely by its owner, (ex-80 Spaces) Ararat Avakian, together with his cousin Sevan. The industrial style fit out features raw, exposed brick walls, caged pendant lights sourced from Japan, a cosy courtyard complete with modgrass floor (perfect for warm summer outings) and beautiful, wooden hanging lamps by industrial designer Sevan.
The menu offers such delights as brioche French toast with citrus salad and orange-blossom crème fraîche; Armenian breakfast pizza with pastirma; kasseri cheese and egg; hot pressed flat breads filled with lamb and pistachio meatloaf or roasted pumpkin; and a range of baguettes, soups and salads.
The Olie & Ari team also operates a small retail space in the cafe that's filled with Spacecraft products, as well as a function space for intimate dining events.
