Latte. Anyway, such toilet humour aside, this was a coffee. Which was rather good. So much so that I did not need any added sugar. With thick milk and earthly tones, this was rather good.
BIG BOY french toast, home-made fluffy brioche, fresh raspberries, raspberry coulis, home-made mascarpone whipped cream. With such BIG TEXT, bombastically shouting out how great it was, it would be a shame if it disappointed (like most things announced in such manner). For once I wasn’t. With soft bread, delicious berry compote topped off with smooth cream, this was great.
Stopping at the end of the meal to bask in surprising happiness, I am glad that I chose this place to spend my Saturday morning. The leafy and plush decor is also worth a mention, if that sort of thing tickles your fancy. Yet in my excitement, I spilt a bit of coffee on my hand. So before it was time to leave, maybe it was time for a visit to the gents with requisite scrubbing of appendages of course.
A quiet eating 8/10.
Breakfast (1 course) was GBP10 excluding drinks and service.
