I have been waiting to come here for ages but never in the area. Their brunch menu was top of my list so after a Sunday visit to Museum of London we wandered over. It was about 12pm and fully booked inside! Luckily the weather was lovely and the queue wasn't too long for a seat outside. We waited about 20 minutes and were seated. The building itself is lovely from the outside with a cute area...more

Ah, so good. I got the tea-smoked salmon with poached eggs and English muffin, and matcha latte for my birthday breakfast here. The salmon was really tasty; I could definitely taste the tea, and it went well with my latte as well. The space is sleek and modern, and you can see the chefs working behind the counter in the kitchen. There are plenty of enticing-looking beverage options on the menu...more
