Almost hit the snooze alarm Saturday morning, but the thought of pancakes and French toast got the best of me. The crew headed out bright and early with brunch on our minds. The trek was quite far from where we live, but I refused to leave London without trying SUNDAY’s famous buttermilk pancakes/French toast duo.

Couldn’t decide what to order so we went a bit crazy and ordered everything they’re known for.

Buttermilk Pancakes.

It’s so thick and fluffy I’m going to dieeeeee. Lathered in blueberries, maple syrup and topped with bacon slices and honeycomb butter. Coming from a person who’d always choose waffle over pancakes, these babies had me second-guessing my life choices. Probably one of my favourite places for pancakes in London (along with OPSO and Chiltern). Oh, and I think the generous portion size speaks for itself.

Brioche French toast.

Caramelized banana and vanilla crème fraîche sandwiched between two thin, egg-y pieces of French toast. Look at all that extra drizzled salted caramel – more for us please!

Corn Fritters.

Served with kiln smoked salmon, avocado and tomato. Personally liked how they smoked the fish until succulent and soft. I’ll be honest, it was my first time trying corn fritters and it really just reminded me of corn stuffed pancakes – not bad!

Fried Chicken over Waffle

Chicken was tender, but the waffles were highly disappointing – soggy and tasteless. Wish we’d replaced that order with another plate of their pancakes.

All in all, the first thing that should come out of your mouth when you arrive is “pancakes and French toast please”. Hold off on the other orders unless you’re dying to try something new because traditional breakfast food is their strong suit. Oh yeah, and though they offer it, don’t go for the half-portion for either…that’s just a sign of weakness.
