It’s been a loooooong week…and when I mean long, I mean got-my-phone-student-ID-bank-card-UK-visa-stolen-all-in-one-go kind of long. No doubt the only thing I was looking forward to more than the weekend was the brunching we’d be doing.

Stumbled across this place while I was exploring Spitalfield market last Sunday and vowed I would make a visit just for their beautiful outdoor terrace.

Their Potato Rosti with Spinach, Poached Egg & Parmesan 

Lovely in presentation, but meager in portion size. 

Standard stack of pancakes sprinkled with a touch of cinnamon that could have been made a bit fluffier - definitely left us full though! 

House Hot-Smoke Trout with Avocado & Poached Eggs on Toast. 

Toasted multigrain bread topped with fresh avocado spread, tenderly smoked trout and two perfectly poached eggs – clear winner of our brunch session. 

Overall, highlights of this place include the beautiful outdoor terrace that should be taken advantage of when making early bookings and their Smoke Trout with Avocado and Poached Eggs on Toast for brunch. Bonus to this place is its location situated right next to the Spitalfield market so you can roam around after brunch in search of some dessert or baked goods from street vendors.
