Union Street Cafe


Moments from Southwark station, Union Street Café is a stylish and modern taste of North Italy, in both style and menu. Head Chef Davide Degiovanni creates a seasonal list of ever-changing dishes, from traditional lasagne through to guinea fowl with three grains.

The venue is split in two; with the cavernous, bright upstairs restaurant mashing slick interiors with industrial touches. Gigantic floor-to-ceiling windows create a light and breathable atmosphere, that's combined with quirky features such as thick concrete pillars, old wing mirrors on walls, and peacock-blue sofas. 

Downstairs, the Olive Grove is hiding - a gorgeous den of twisting trees and vines. Available for private hire, this immersive room will whizz you to an Italian terrace, complete with rustic tables, old shutters and twinkling fairy lights, that all add to the intimate atmosphere. Food is also inspired by olives, with a tasty selection of bar snacks and cocktails, that include the likes of Olive Garden: a potent muddle of Leccino Olive oil, Bombay Sapphire, Martini Dry, lemon juice, St Germain and honey.
