Alex Hely-Hutchinson was 24 years old when she started selling what she called ‘posh porridge’ on a pop-up stall at Old Street tube station in 2014. Two years later, she had published her first cookery book and opened her first bricks-and-mortar cafe in Covent Garden’s Neal’s Yard: 26 Grains, named for the cafe’s heritage grains-focused menu. Borough Market is now home to Alex’s second site, named Stoney Street after the road it’s situated on. Similar to 26 Grains in many ways, expect grains – if not 26 of them – alongside seasonal tarts and pastries. For lunch and dinner think warm chicory, pear and raclette, focaccia sandwiches with anchovy hazelnut butter, fresh pasta or bavette steak with swiss chard and taleggio.
