The Bao bun brand has garnered something of a cult status since opening its first location in Soho six years ago. Positioned on Kings Cross' smart St Pancras Square development, Cafe Bao is the fourth and newest addition to the group. Inspired by the western-style cafés of Asia - such as Taiwanese boleros and the kissetens of Japan - the space features a sit-down restaurant as well as a bao bakery that can even cater to bespoke bao requests, leaving queues snaking out the door on a regular basis.
What's more, unlike the other locations, Cafe Bao is also open all day - meaning breakfast is officially on the menu. Weekend diners can even start their day with a special Taiwanese-themed breakfast selection.
