Oatopia has always been a family affair, started in 2012 by mother Tamar Coleman, husband Peter, and two daughters Yasmin and myself Sophie.
The Oatopia concept was sparked by a love for healthy eating and living, and a sense of frustration at the lack of wholesome nutritious food usually on offer at sports events which we would attend every weekend to compete in triathlons and running races. Inspired by oats, together we set out to make oat-a-liciously delicious food available at events like these around the UK.
Fast forward to today and Oatopia has grown. We’ve two roaming catering trucks and one franchise serving up porridge at festivals and events, a recent partnership with Mornflake (one of the oldest oat millers in Europe) and now we have arrived at Boxpark Croydon! Exciting times!
So whats on the menu at Boxpark Croydon? Our infamous freshly made dairy and vegan coconut porridge, plus a range of over 30 different flavours of handmade artisan flapjacks and vegan energy bombs. We are Londons first porridge ‘bar’ with a set menu of ten different porridge combos, or the option to select your own from our long list of toppings - we’ve almost everything on there you could dream of putting on porridge!
Everything on offer at Boxpark is made fresh on site e.g. our toasted bagels, porridge and fruit smoothies, or back home at our bakery in East Sussex. Made with love, care and creative flare, using only Mornflake oats, our flapjacks are nick named ‘fatjacks’ due to their super size - as high as they are wide! Whats more many of our products are wheat and gluten free.
Also on the menu are a range of oat and fruit smoothies, a natural yoghurt parfait, and our delicious bircher muesli, plus a new range of toasted bagels. To drink we offer competition standard barista coffee, using perfectly roasted beans from Red Roaster. Our experienced head barista Joe perfected his trade in Melbourne, Australia (Melbourne now being regarded as a modern day leader in the art of coffee making), and makes the best flat white around!
Alongside Joe we have a awesome team of staff who are passionate about food and coffee, and love some good chat and banter! Come say hi at unit 71 and give our oats a try!
