Mona born and raised in Krems, Austria and Carly from High Barnet, North London, opened their doors to monaliciousfood in Hoxton, East London in March 2019. Mona has always had a passion for food and dreamt of having her own cafe, while Carly has always aspired to have her own business. They both met at the Olympics in 2012 and have since become best friends and partners. In 2018 Mona left her PA/Team Coordinator role and Carly her role as Film & Photographic Studio Manager to fulfill their dreams. They found an affordable property to rent in Hoxton within their budget. ’The decision was quick and bold, but it felt right.
The Austrian Twist ...
Mona has brought her Austrian roots exclusively to Hoxton. Her Austrian favourites are homemade and include the classic Applestrudel, Sachertorte, Palatschinken, Kaiserschmarren and a beautiful Frühstück. A taste of Austria in Hoxton.
