Cundall & Garcia, Spitalfields, London - shop and deli - home-cooked food and provisions

Welcome to Cundall & Garcia

We're open weekdays 10-4pm & Saturdays 12-5pm

Welcome to Cundall & Garcia. We like to think of ourselves as a village shop in the City where you can buy a sandwich made to order, a cup of slow-brewed Monmouth filter coffee, a bag of traditional sweets and a homemade Scotch egg for later.

We also have a carefully selected range of provisions from around the UK.

Every day we make sandwiches to order with the finest fillings; honey-roast ham, farmhouse cheeses, home-cooked meats and smoked salmon. Our Scotch eggs have quickly found a loyal following.

Join the queue weekday lunchtimes for our hot meals and renowned home-cooked sandwich. We cram a whole meal between two slices of bread. How about pulled pork & spicy slaw or free-range roast chicken with sage and onion stuffing? There's a different one every day and if you prefer you can take it as a salad box - see our Twitter feed for the week's menu.

Find us in the heart of old Spitalfields, a stone's throw from Liverpool Street and near famous Brick Lane - see a map. Read more about the history of the Cundall & Garcia shop.

A.Gold menu Cundall & Garcia - homemade Scotch Eggs

Homemade Scotch eggs

Royal grocer Fortnum & Mason claim to have invented Scotch eggs in the 18th Century. From such majestic beginnings they have become a rather nasty supermarket snack food but proper homemade Scotch eggs are a revelation.

We make them fresh every weekday (unless we're making homemade sausage rolls - but that's another story). A free-range boiled egg is encased in seasoned sausage meat, rolled in breadcrumbs and deep-fried. They are satisfying, truly delicious and have a loyal (some might say fanatic) following - we sell dozens a day. Try it cut in half with a dollop of hot English mustard.

If you can't get to the shop, or we've sold out (an all too common occurance), what about making your own? Our recipe is on the Cooking page.

Campbell's Tea

Please note: we now have more Campbell's Tea - both in tins and in refill packs

A.Gold - Campbell's Irish Tea

'Beautiful Flavour, Delicious Rich Cup' it says on the tin and we can only agree. A strong but smooth full-bodied blended tea made from loose East African leaves.

A firm favourite, customers buy tins and tins of it, sometimes so much we wonder how they can possibly drink it all.

For those of you who love the tin but love the tea more, we now have the handy refill packs, ideal to top-up your tin with.

In true Cundall & Garcia style, we present a rather special salad bar during weekday lunchtimes. Like our sandwich fillings and dish of the day, everything is prepared from fresh ingredients each morning in our kitchen upstairs.

You can add the special filling of the day to your salad box or any of the meats, cheeses, smoked salmon, pies or a Scotch egg from the deli cabinet. Alternatively, go light and just have the salad.

Plain mixed & dressed salad £5.00
Add a filling for £2.00

Hold the bread? We offer the daily special as a salad box, with a selection of cooked & dressed vegetables.
