Fancy a free bowl of gourmet porridge this weekend?


In many ways, we can relate to Goldilocks.

After all, if we spotted a bowl of unattended porridge on our morning commute, we’d probably dip in our spoons as well – bears be damned!

But, sadly, free porridge has remained the stuff of fairytales… until now, that is.

Quaker Oats have launched a one-of-a-kind pop up Oat Café in East London to celebrate the start of Porridge Season.

Driven completely by Instagram, the café will change the porridge dish on offer every thirty minutes, depending on which recipe has proven to be the most popular on social media.

With foodies like Bake Off’s Edd Kimber and We Are Food’s Anna Jones behind the menu, there’s not a bog-standard banana and honey oatmeal in sight.

Instead, you can expect a plethora of scrummy and unusual offerings, including Blueberry Pie, Maple Pear, Mango and Coconut, Figs with Honey and Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Jam, and homemade Apple Pie.

The Oat Café is open for just three days

There’s even a range of savoury porridges on offer, with a Bacon Brunch Bowl (packed full of creamy gruyere cheese) and White Miso Bowl being touted as absolute must-try dishes.

And, yes, they are all 100% free to the public.

But, as is so often the case with these things, you’ll have to be quick.

This first-of-its-kind café will be open for just three days between 9am and 12pm from Friday 28th October – 30th October

Perfect for anyone feeling a little hungover after their Halloween party, eh?
