10 Delicious Specialist Food Shops in Marylebone

15 May 18

While it’s true you can never run out of places to eat out in London, there’s something (actually, a lot) to be said for embracing your inner Nigella and reacquainting yourself with your kitchen—especially not when you’re within tasting distance of some of the most inspiring and inviting specialist food shops in London’s leafy Marylebone neighbourhood. These are some of Marylebone’s best food shops and delis to visit next time you’re in town.

 

La Fromagerie

Whether you’re in the mood for something soft and creamy, hard or blue, no true cheese aficionado should even think of leaving Marylebone without paying a visit to La Fromagerie. Consistently ranked as one of the finest cheesemongers in London, if not the country, you’ll find an in-house cheese room, maturing cellars, as well as knowledgeable affineurs ready to help you with the all-important selection process.

Daylesford Organic

Aspiring chefs and keen cooks alike are sure to be inspired by the fresh produce delivered daily from Daylesford’s organic farm in Gloucestershire to its Marylebone shop. Along with the anticipated seasonal fruit and veg, this upmarket delicatessen also plays host to an in-store butcher and sells freshly baked bread and pastries alongside dairy products from their very own creamery.

 

Maison Kayser

One of Marylebone’s most anticipated recent arrivals, the internationally known and loved boulangerie Maison Kayser is theplace to go for high-end carbs, with traditional bread and pastries baked on site throughout the day.

The Orrery Epicerie

Want to put a little je ne sais quoiback on the menu? Tucked away inside its more famous café, the Epicerie is home to a fully stocked delicatessen selling charcuterie, bread, cheese and pates, as well as the French classics—mouth-watering cassoulet, confit de canard and pot au feu.

 

The Ginger Pig

Carnivores will want to make room in their refrigerators before visiting the butcher’s counter at The Ginger Pig, where high-quality cuts of meat from animals raised at owner Tim Wilson’s Grange Farm are sold alongside succulent sausages, scotch eggs and scrumptious pies.

Paul Rothe and Son

The Rothe family has been serving Marylebone the most delicious jams and breads for over a century, and just a glance inside their old-fashioned storybook store will give you a good idea why. Tremendously popular for their soups and sandwiches come lunchtime, visit outside of peak hours if you want space and time to browse.

 

Le Vieux Comptoir

Have a meal in mind, but not sure what tipple to pair it with? Let Le Vieux Comptoir’s knowledgeable staff wow you with their extensive cellar, after taking your pick from their French cheese and charcuterie selection.

Pierre Marcolini

If Belgian chocolate is on the menu, indulge your sweet tooth at haute chocolaterie Marcolini, which sells delicate macarons and cream-filled pastries alongside their signature chocolates.

 

Natural Kitchen

If the thought of traipsing around another supermarket is liable to make you give up cooking for good, get back to basics at the Natural Kitchen, where you can pick up a wide variety of wild, artisan and organic food supplied by the likes of the River Cottage, Paxton & Whitfield cheesemongers and The Well Hung Meat Company.

Rococo Chocolates

For chocoholics looking for something more special than the usual after-dinner offerings (Ferrero Rocher, again?), look no further than Rococo, where no flavour combination is off the cards. Using only the highest quality cocoa and exotic active ingredients—from jasmine tea to Islay whisky, basil and lime to crystallized ginger and cardamom—even the most adventurous foodies won’t be disappointed.
