Filled with delicious Smoked Turkey, Bacon, Cranberry, Stuffing, Red Cabbage, Gem Lettuce & Pigs in Blanket, it’s one to try during the festive season.

Trade is an award-winning independent group of coffee shops and eateries, serving up sandwiches, home-made quality food and specialty coffee across three unique locations in the Capital.

Trade is more than a local coffee shop, it is a leading sandwich destination, brunch beacon and all-day café. It has its own smokery and bakery, producing fresh cakes and smoked meat daily, and serves creative, TRADEmade dishes that won’t be found on anyone else’s menu along. It uses only the best seasonal ingredients from local, ethical farms and growers.

Trade’s Sandwiches

Trade’s sandwiches they taste homemade but are expertly assembled for the perfect texture and exact ratio of sauce, filling and bread. The menu spans reinvented classics, ground-breaking plant-based serves and original hot sandwiches for a modern London audience.

From juicy pastrami on East End Rye in a deliciously messy serve, to Trade’s take on a classic Club made with grilled halloumi and house-made smoked tomato chilli jam.

Trade’s signature sandwich is the Reuben and London’s answer to NY’s iconic Katz Deli serve. This is piled high with hot and juicy house-smoked pastrami, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and finished with Trade’s addictive TRADE-Secret Sauce, sandwiched between slices of East End Rye bread.

Trade’s Mushrooben is a plant-based, dynamic interpretation of the classic Reuben. It is filled with peppery, umami rich mushroom pastrami, sauerkraut, melting vegan cheese and Trade’s vegan Secret Sauce, sandwiched between slices of East End Rye bread. Zingy pickles are served on the side.

Trade’s other sandwich options include:

  • Cuban Club (Smoked Turkey, Ham, Swiss Cheese, Cranberry Jam, Trade Sauce, Lettuce, Brioche Bun)
  • Halloumi Club (Grilled Halloumi, Smoked Tomato Chilli Jam, Lettuce, Olive Tapenade, Tomato, Avocado, Burnt Lemon Juice, Brioche Bun)
