Burberry recently opened a café within its flagship on London’s Regent Street, called Thomas’s. Named after Burberry’s founder, Thomas Burberry, the café sits in a new split-level space at the corner of the extended Regent Street store, which also houses a new gifting area.
Constructed in 1820 for the Prince Regent, the building has housed galleries, a cinema, livery stables and a radio broadcaster over the course of 200 years
With seating areas on both floors, the café boasts high ceilings, black-and-white marble floors, black lantern chandeliers and large windows onto Sackville Street. The café offers an all-day menu with dishes including lobsters and chips, cured salmon with scrambled eggs and Mersea rock oysters.
The gifting area, meanwhile, carries home-furnishing items, games, stationery and travel accessories, including a line of canvas pouches and tote bags. There is also a monogram service, so customers can have flat leather designs monogrammed within an hour.
The rest of the store will feature limited-edition collection of men’s and women’s trench coats, shoes and iconic bags, available exclusively in Burberry Regent Street location.
