Jolene Bakery opens on Hackney’s Well Street

Jeremie Cometto-Lingenheim and David Gingell’s bakery brand Jolene has added a fourth location to its portfolio – announcing on Instagram that a location will open on Hackney’s Well Street in March.

It will be the eighth location for one of London’s most stylish and progressive hotel groups, which includes Primeur and Westerns Laundry and Big Jo, one of London’s biggest hits in the corona era – which opened its doors in the fall of 2020.

The expansion of the Jolene brand, a huge success since opening at a previously doomed site in Newington Green, is something Cometto-Lingenheim has been keen to do over the past couple of years – as it has said before: to expand the regenerative agricultural movement through the opening of small Jolene satellites across the capital. The Redchurch Street sites – aka “restaurant row” – in Shoreditch landed in May 2021 before the small bakery at the former Natur House site on the corners of Essex Road and Colebrooke Row in Islington the same year.

As well as baking sourdough breads with heritage wheats from France and the UK, Jolene specializes in popular traditional styles of viennoiserie and pastry, as well as excellent sandwiches, salads, small plates and assemblies. clever use of good seasonal ingredients.

The group also operates Fitzroy in Fowey, Cornwall.
