Chiswick-based American restaurant, bakery and café Outsider Tart is taking over the operation of the café at Hammersmith’s theatre.

Outsider Tart @ The Lyric in Hammersmith opens its outdoor space to guests from Monday, 12 April.

The breakfast, munch, lunch and supper spot has partially covered outdoor seating which can be reserved in advance. Walk-ins are also welcome and takeaways are available.

The daily menu is based on Outsider Tart’s combination of pancakes, salads, sandwiches, desserts, drinks and shakes with a soup of the day and pie of the month. Ingredients, produce and suppliers are sourced locally where possible.

Opening hours are 8am to 5pm Monday to Saturday from April 12 to June 24.

From June, the menu will change to reflect the theatrical bill of the Lyric Theatre which opens on June 18 with Out West, a triple bill of new plays by Tanika Gupta, Simon Stephens and Roy Williams which explore themes of race, identity, place and purpose.

Co-founder David Muniz said, “Outsider Tart @ The Lyric is a celebration of collaborative, local and independent dining. This new venture will enhance our known brand and menu with local suppliers such as Bears Ice Cream and Parle Pantry. We will showcase the theatrical schedule of the Lyric Theatre within our décor, menu and special events commencing in June with our Out West Foodie Events.”
