From top-notch single origin coffee to sweet treats, hearty breakfasts and speedy lunches, here's what's on offer in our cafés
Our summer menu is full of food and drink we love to devour in the warmer months. As well as our perpetually popular breakfasts there are Foodhall favourites, such as Beer Battered Fish and Chips and Crispy Chicken Burgers with Coleslaw, plus tasty soups and jacket potatoes. But it’s our new dishes we’re particularly excited about: light yet substantial salads, eye-catching platters, and sumptuous ice-cream sundaes.
The drinks menu has also been given a summery makeover with four frappés, three iced coffees, and a variety of lemonades, milkshakes and smoothies that will liven up your tastebuds, while our Barista coffee selection offers a new gently-toasted, medium-bodied Brazilian single origin blend.
Nothing says summer quite like strawberries and cream, so we're serving sweet and succulent strawberries – all grown at our own farms in the UK – with lashings of luscious fresh cream to help you get into the sunshine spirit. Head down to one of our M&S Cafés (medium and large cafés only) and enjoy this quintessentially British dessert for just £2.
Too hot? Shopped till you dropped? Chill out at an M&S Café with one of our irresistible iced drinks. Whether it’s a fruity tropical or superberry smoothie; an Americano, flat white or latté iced coffee; or a sweet frappé treat in flavours that include salted caramel crunch and strawberries and cream, you’ll feel calmer and cooler after enjoying one of our ice-cold beverages.
Our platters showcase some of the best deli produce our Foodhalls have to offer. Choose from the Ploughman’s Platter with pork pie, scotch egg, ham, pickle, bread and salad; the Tapas Platter with chorizo, Parma ham, mozzarella balls, chargrilled peppers, bread and salad; or the vegetarian Mezze Platter with falafel, houmous, tabbouleh, marinated halloumi and mini pittas. (Available in large cafés only.)
Our new sundaes taste as good as they look. There’s the Triple Chocolate, a combo of Cornish chocolate ice-cream with chocolate brownie, chocolate sauce and a giant chocolate button; Sticky Toffee, a mix of Cornish honeycomb ice-cream with toffee popcorn, sticky toffee sauce and mini fudge pieces; and a fruity Eton Mess made from Cornish raspberry ripple ice-cream with meringue, raspberry sauce and fresh strawberries. Go on, treat yourself. (Available in medium and large cafés.)
...This is our new limited-edition Brazilian Single Origin coffee. Available across all our cafés (just add 20p) this gently toasted medium-bodied coffee is slightly nutty with hints of malt and sweetness.
Not only does it have a subtle but distinctive flavour it's 100% traceable back to one of our small, sustainable producers in Minas Gerais, a state of Brazil known for its speciality coffee.
At M&S we love coffee so much we also hold the Barista of the Year competition, which gives our 1,200 skilled baristas the opportunity to demonstrate their passion and knowledge for M&S coffee. This year’s winner is Miroslaw Zworek, from the Leeds store, who created the ‘Miro’ (Moments of Inspirational, Refreshing Originality) – a short drink made from mint syrup, mint, and house-blend espresso layered with blended milk and ice-cream.
And what does our champion like to sip? Miro can’t get enough of the robust strength of a double M&S house-blend espresso.
