The former Oaken has reopened its doors, this time as Super, Britomart's newest daytime eatery.
Following the closure of Oaken last December, owners Britomart Hospitality Group have re-purposed the waterfront space and opened new cafe, Super. Making use of the blonde timber which already clad the walls, the cafe still feels spacious and bright; an in-vogue neon ‘super’ sign adds some fun to the otherwise sparse room.
Experienced head chef Oliver Fitton, formerly of The Chamberlain and now-closed restaurant Beirut, is focusing on a menu of cafe classics here including poached eggs, eggs benedict, and mince & beans at wallet-friendly prices. There is a decadent-sounding Whittaker’s chocolate granola bowl, and banana bread French toast. Cali Pressed juices and a short wine list complete the offering, alongside coffee from both Coffee Supreme and Allpress, made by former Oaken barista Sai Okesene.
