During my trip to London, two weeks ago, I visited some lovely brunch places. I could have eggs all day, everyday.
Duck & Waffle was one of my favorite places, here we had some scrambled eggs with salmon and avocado and we tried one of their famous waffles. If the place is called after one of their dishes, it should be good, and I can tell you, both were amazing. Besides the good food, we enjoyed a spectacular view. The restaurant is located on the 40th floor and is completely surrounded by glass windows. The view can be enjoyed both day and night, and you can even watch a sunrise from here as they are open 24/7.
We stayed in the Langham Hotel, which is renown for its afternoon tea. The legends tells that the afternoon tea was born here a 150 years ago. We had a lovely stay in this classis and stylish hotel.
Being in London, I wanted to have a English breakfast, but my own-way. So we went to The Riding House Cafe, where I enjoyed some poached eggs, avocado and other English goodies. Across the street I saw a coffee place called Kaffeine. Where I went in, and saw that they received an award for their flat white coffee. Definitely needed to try that! Moreover, I was happily surprised when the barista told me they had homemade unsweetened almond milk. I combined both and have to say, indeed it was award-worthy. Another special place I want to tell you about is The Attendant. An espresso & food bar build in a former Victorian toilet, that dates back to 1890. Today you can enjoy a coffee here while sitting at a original porcelain urinal.
