Bank Holiday and the capital was buzzing under the sunny and glorious rays of the sun… and whilst the plan was to go up to the Shire for the Malibu Water Ski competition (where my Robin was to compete) we could have not skipped brunch…
The plan was pretty simple… gym, packing, brunch and then train… so destination?! Kings Cross… Options? Plenty, but none as amazing as Granger & Co.
While Granger & Co. is not a new player, it is a growing one nonetheless. I remember over 4 years ago I used to queue outside the Notting Hill branch, on Westbourne Grove, in anticipation of those beautifully presented scrambled eggs. And look at me now, still “queueing” (not really as there were not many people on Monday) but outside the Kings Cross restaurant ready to indulge in whatever egg based dish.
With the rise of the vegan/vegetarian/gluten-free culture I noticed that the menu was definitely different from what I remembered. With a lot more quinoa, smoothies, cold brew coffees and other “hipsterious” additions including my choice of the “Tea smoked salmon” or as the waitress corrected me the “Fresh Aussie” dish.
Robin, went for something more naughty though… corn fritters with bacon and a salsa to accompany the symphony of colours.
I have to admit the food was great, the ambiance was very elegant and the company even better. To top everything the bubbles made an appearance in the end to give me that extra Bank holiday kick i needed.
The prices were not as cheap as the well known Breakfast club’s but were definitely worth as the quality and quantity offered at Granger & Co was absolutely impeccable and more than sufficient.
If it’s your first time I do recommend you go for the scrambled eggs as to me is the signature dish of Granger & Co. I bet you’ll be excited too when they’re presented in front of you. Moreover, if it’s sunny outside, try the cold brew coffee… it’s so quenching and fresh!!!
Feeling like a starter? (or a “small dish” as they call them) Go for the whipped avo with tofu and chia seeds it’s beautiful too.
