New pastries at Monmouth Coffee - Food Find

Parma Rose ham pastry
from the Little Bread Pedlar

Regulars at Monmouth Coffee in Covent Garden, Borough and Maltby Street will have noticed a quiet revolution over the past few months.  The main business of Monmouth is to select coffees from around the world, roast and sell them wholesale and retail, but you can also pick up a take-away or drink in.  They've long offered a little something to eat along with the coffee.  The food was fine, if a litte unexciting.  A rethink has led Monmouth to work with bakery The Little Bread Pedlar on a small but perfect range of morsels to complement the coffee.  Most are sweet but now a wonderful ham pastry 'Parma Rose' has been introduced.  My favourite coffee roaster paired with  one of the most interesting bakers in the capital could be bad news for my waistline.
