Caffè Genco at the Artsadmin Canteen

Caffè Genco is managed and run by Phoebe Hunt and Ata Çin, a British/ Turkish couple who recently moved back to the UK after living and working in Florence. Between them, they have extensive experience in restaurant management, wine making, supper clubs, catering and east London restaurant PR. 

The name Genco is inspired by the Turkish word for ‘young’ – capturing the youth, excitement and freshness of their new offering. Its ethos is one of sustainability, hospitality and generosity, with strong influences from Italian and Turkish café culture. Their Mediterranean inspired menu will change daily and seasonally, focused on hearty salads, hot meals, freshly baked focaccia and homemade treats.

In due course, Genco plans to expand into weekday breakfast and supper clubs, weekend brunch, external catering, community workshops, and some evening aperitivo bar trade.
