Assenheims 56, the café and coffee shop concept with a South American-twist, is to open its fourth unit in the capital after securing a site in Farringdon.

The group, which is led Matthew Ashley and backed by the Assenheims catering firm, has secured the former Caphe Pho site at 12 Smithfield Street for an opening later this year.

The company opened its first site at the start of 2011 in Copthall Avenue, London Wall.

It also operates site in Great Tower Street and Ludgate Broadway.
