1. DO YOU DO NATIONWIDE DELIVERIES?
I am afraid not – but we are working on it! As our products are made fresh every single day by hand, they can be fragile. These delicate products do not always travel well and most need refrigeration. At present, we are not partnered with a courier service to deliver nationally however, in London we work with Deliveroo to deliver to a large portion of London with new postcodes added regularly. If you are outside of their delivery zones, unfortunately, we are unable to arrange a delivery.
2. DO YOU DELIVER IN LONDON?
Yes, we do! Our partners at Deliveroo help us to safely deliver our freshly made items to our London customers. This means if your post code is within the delivery zones, we will be ready and more than happy to process your order!

3. DO YOU FRANCHISE?
All our stores globally – and in the UK - are company owned and operated. At present, we do not offer any franchise opportunities.
4. DO YOU HAVE OPTIONS SUITABLE FOR VEGANS / VEGETARIANS?
We sure do! We strive to accommodate dietary requirements to ensure we can offer something for everyone.
All our breads, pastries and most of our cakes are vegetarian.
To our vegan customers we are proud to announce that London’s ‘first ever’ vegan cream cake, the Passionfruit slice, is back on our menu, as well as our new vegan toastie, the Smoked ‘gouda’ and ‘No-Duja toastie. Also don’t forget all O&S branches offers plant-based milk alternatives, Oat, Almond and Soya, for your coffee of choice - free of charge.

5. WHERE CAN I FIND ALLERGEN INFORMATION?
We take allergies and special dietary requirements very seriously. All our food is made fresh every day, by hand, in our kitchens. We work closely with our suppliers and our food safety partners to ensure that our information is correct and customers with allergies feel reassured that we will look after their needs properly. We therefore ask that you inform us before ordering of any special dietary requirements that you may have. Our recipe information is frequently updated so please check each time you visit to ensure that you have the most up to date allergen information. Whilst every care is taken by our teams, we cannot guarantee a 100% allergen free environment, nor can we guarantee against the processes used by our Suppliers or products which may be produced in an environment with other allergens. Where an ingredient is included as part of the recipe, this will be specified, however it is possible that dishes may contain traces of other allergens. Please ask to speak with a Manager for more information.

6. ARE YOUR STORES OPEN DURING LOCKDOWN?

7. ARE YOUR JUICE COLD PRESSED?
They sure are! Our cold pressed juices are made by our supplier, The Juice Executive, a family-owned business from the countryside in Kent. By using the cold pressed method, it means our juices aren’t pasteurised (heat or pressure treated), we thereby retain more nutrients, and it makes for a much better tasting juice. Nothing is added, the produce is simply washed, pressed and bottled.
We always aim to source the most sustainable option possible, whether that's getting our apples from Kent, or choosing a European partner for things that can't be grown in the UK e.g., citrus fruits.
8. CAN I APPLY FOR A JOB?
Of course, you can! Our commitment to our core principles, “love, karma, and the right to learn”, fosters a sense of community and engagement. Each team member takes the extra step to create exceptional guest experiences and products of the highest quality. Explore available opportunities and join the hygge.
