Sunday morning and we woke up to the sunniest Sunday ever – what a better excuse for brunch?! Yes, i hear you say!
So as previously mentioned, following my move to my new SE1 post code after my dreadful goodbye of Shoreditch, i’ve embarked on a journey to explore the new neighbourhood in an attempt to bring out all the brunching gems out to my fellow Southerners and beyond.
Well, and when I was ready to abandoned the world of “hipsterness” you can’t imagine what i’ve found!!!!!
I’ve found where the pancakes are… !!! Yes, they’re south of the river guys and they are absolutely incredibly delicious! and needless to say super Hipstery!
Long story short guys, a new market has opened up next to our place. It’s a market, but with a little bit more of an architectural umph to it! It’s a pleasure to linger around Flat Iron Square because it’s exactly like Shoreditch but without the crazy crowds or the pretentious inhabitants of it. So, Flat Iron Square hosts several artisanal products (obviously) as well as little proper shops/restaurants/cafes one of which is the “Where the Pancakes are“, an Aussie pancake house.
The queue to grab a seat was actually 2hours so we decided we were brave enough to wrap up in our coats and furs and seat outside enjoying an al fresco brunch experience. What was surprising though was that the food was ready in literally 5′ after we placed the order. The stuff was incredibly polite and attentive and finally.. the food was insanely tasty!
Robin went for the Australian – which consisted of corn fritters, avo, smoked salmon and some other magic whereas i went for the sweeter Hummingbird with the toasted almonds, pomegranate, lime zest and grilled apple… it was glorious!
