Get Busy with the Fizzy
Recharge your batteries with an authentic Italian aperitif at Prosecco Caffè.
What could be better after a long day of shopping, than a well-earned glass of something cold, crisp and bubbly? Look no further than Prosecco Caffè, a stylish Italian café offering the ideal pitstop for catching up with friends or relaxing with the family. Once you’ve made yourself comfortable at one of the stylish velvet banquettes, choose your tipple from the extensive menu of DOC Prosecco, wine, classic Italian cocktails and soft drinks. Then indulge your taste buds with a selection of Cicchetti – light savoury bites – or heartier dishes including melt-in-the-mouth gnocchi and classic aubergine parmigiana.
If you’re in the mood for something a little sweeter, there’s a range of delicious Italian desserts, cakes and pastries on offer. Our top pick is the Chocolate Salami – made from crumbled biscuits, cocoa, butter and eggs and served in three bite-sized pieces – it’s definitely not one to share. Finally, power up with a classic Italian coffee or press pause and enjoy another glass of bubbly. Either way, the shopping can wait. Prego.

Cool down as the sun (finally) comes out with a scoop or three from luxury ice cream boutique Snowflake Gelato. Each of the 40 varieties of gelato and sorbetto are freshly made every day by Snowflake’s gelato chefs and served at minus 12 degrees for that perfectly smooth, melt-in-the-mouth taste sensation. Standout flavours include White Chocolate and Rose Water, Honeycomb Crunch, and Lime and Mint. Not in the mood for ice cream? Fear not, Snowflake Gelato has an impressive bonus menu of waffles, crêpes and tempting desserts, so there’s no excuse not to indulge.

Popeyes has been serving legions of loyal customers Stateside since 1972 with its secret-recipe chicken marinated in herbs and spices for no less than 12 hours. Now the global giant has landed at Westfield Stratford City with a shiny new flagship store and an even shinier menu of freshly prepared hand-battered chicken. What really sets Popeyes apart from the competition is its famous shatter-crunch texture, which is best appreciated via the classic Chicken Sandwich served in a contrasting soft brioche bun.
