This was the most recent choice for a “Sunday Sit In” for myself and a group of friends. I have been here before, but only for dinner and not for my favourite of activities…. a Brunch.
Quicker than we could say “Bellini”, our waitress had assessed everyone on our table, made accurate assumptions about our tastes and suggested the best driks for us all. With 2 Kir Royales, a Prosecco and a Bloody Mary en route, we started what became an unintentional 4 hour Sunday Sit In.
This place is Brunch ready but stylish enough to carry cocktails afterwards. It is dressy casual and perfect for that schprawnsy but easy feel that so many places fail to achieve.
I had the Breakfast with extras of Chilli Beans and Avocado. The breakfast came with Black Pudding that was top notch and this from someone who can only handle it in very limited doses. Love it or hate it, its nice to have the option I say.
The other three had the Eggs Royale, Eggs Florentine and Eggs Benedict. (All did the double on them). Their Hollandaise (because obviously I tried it) was perfect for my palette. Creamy and rich without tasting like a heap of whipped butter and tarragon. There is very little worse in my book than a bad hollandaise… I have borderline mentally dismissed all other food on the plate because of it previously. My breakfast was very good and had all that you would expect including perfect eggs. You know how I am with my eggs.
The food was exactly what we wanted from brunch, but more impressive was the service and the attention to detail from the staff there.
