Warm & Glad is a street-level restaurant with great windows and light, an open feel and a hip New York style outdoor area. The look and layout is simple and low key, the ambience cosy yet upbeat and constantly abuzz with the noise of excitable chatter. The delightful courtyard out back is filled with palms and fairy lights perfect for summer nights.
W&G has developed from being a coffee shop and retail store into a fully-fledged restaurant and bar which now features Asian-inspired street food dishes such as ramen and steamed buns and a classic cocktail list including Japanese whiskies, sake and shochu.
There's never a bad time to come by so give every mealtime a go. We’re open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For breakfast you can expect scrambled eggs with classic sides, American-style pancakes with bacon, fried egg and cinnamon syrup butter, house-made granola and for the adventurous - Congee - a delicious rice porridge with sous vide egg, pan fried mushrooms, crisp shallots, crisp ginger, pickled chilli, roasted cashews, coriander and spring onions.
For a light lunch choose from one of four salads or share a couple of steamed buns and afternoon snacks. We also serve juicy burgers where the patties and brioche buns are made in-house. Our ramens are delicious for a lunch or a dinner but if you prefer a larger main we particularly enjoy our seared sesame crusted tuna steak with a wasabi paint, sticky beef served with a coconut rice, Asian steak frites or our pork tonkatsu with parmesan fries.
We are by no means traditional in our approach – we serve what we love to eat.
Our wine list is curated by our sister wine bar Ace+Pearl, situated upstairs, while cocktails such as the house Negroni or the sharp and sweet Woo Woo are a must try. Our staff are friendly and knowledgeable. You'll be made to feel extra welcome by our wonderful doorman.
Parking is in the streets all around Albans Square and are guarded.
