It’s been quite some time… but I promise a lot of things have happened since.
To name a few; I’ve changed homes, changed jobs and changed thousands of outfits… but what remained constant was my brunching habits (obvs)!
The truth is, It definitely felt like I was running out of time to do everything and I had to prioritise…Work, gym, sleep, eat (brunch) and repeat! But now that balance is slowly coming back into my life, it’s time to start reporting again on all the delicious calories that kept me going.
So here we are in front of a plate filled with goodness once again… the “gatherer” as Black Penny peeps liked to call it;
A plate filled with fresh products; ranging from vegetables (wilted spinach, juicy warm tomatoes, mouth drooling mushrooms) to fennel tasting beans and what I’ve decided to be organic eggs (possibly not)! This vegetarian option ticked all my boxes and kept me and my “veggie” month challenge going (yes, i’m on a semi-veggie/ semi-pescaterian challenge – don’t even ask).
In second place, comes Robin, with his “hunter” plate – not quite sure what made his dish a hunter… but it looked amazing;
Fried eggs, halloumi, hummus and loads of parsley bits… Yum!!! I guess, given that it only lasted about 2′ in Robin’s plate.
The overall ambiance of the place is your typical Shoreditch-y Hipster-y wooden accents and brick walls with cool dangly lights hanging from the ceiling.
The staff was uber polite and definitely made the loooooooong wait to get a seat, and get your food a bit more pleasant. Ah! yes… be prepared to wait. Not just to be seated but also to get your food (could take up to 45′ or so ). I repeat, DO NOT go too hungry there!
To silence my impatience and sweeten my unsettled hunger – we decided to share a french toast too. At the end of the day this was breakfast and lunch!
I highly recommend this little place, despite the wait; the food and the service were great. It’s also a place you want to stick around, have long chats and make plans in… also centrally located and only 5′ from Holborn station.
What are you waiting…?! Plan your visit!
For a party of 2 expect around £45-50.
