As a foodie I love breakfast, especially when I can take my time and truly enjoy it. The weekend lends itself perfectly and I enjoy finding and trying out new places to eat.
Recently I have been testing out Old Street, Shoreditch and Hoxton to see what they have to offer. Surprisingly it has a good variety of breakfast offerings.
1. Dishoom (Shoreditch), a light, airy Indian restaurant, which is like stepping into a restaurant in Bombay. Breakfast is served from 9am - 12pm at weekends.
It might sound strange to consider having Indian cuisine for breakfast but when mixed with British staples like bacon and sausage the outcome is a winning combination. Fresh from the tandoor oven, naan bread, a little cream cheese, chilli tomato jam and fresh herbs (£5.20).
Who knew that bacon and naan bread could be such a winning combination they work perfectly and taste delicious.
Add a spicy Chai Latte (£2.50) to the mix this is a breakfast that I won't be forgetting any time soon.
7 Boundary Street
2. Next up is Albion a cafe hidden down a small alley in Shoreditch, conveniently located behind Dishoom restaurant. The cafe also houses a shop that sells fresh in house baked bread, croissants, cakes, fresh juice, tea, coffee and chocolate.
The restaurant serves breakfast on a weekend from 8am- 12.30pm.
They don't take pre bookings for tables and get very busy at weekends so arrive early or expect to have to wait for a table.
A bacon and sausage roll (£8.50).
2-4 Boundary Street,
3.Ozone Cafe is situated near Old Street station and at weekends serves an all day brunch.
They make freshly roasted coffee onsite and for any coffee lovers amongst us it is strong and is wonderfully flavoursome.
Eggs any style on ciabatta (£5).
Omelette with cheddar, caramelised onion & chives (£8.50). Addition of bacon (£3.50).
11 Leonard Street,
Brunch is served from when they open till 5pm, so for those that like our beds at the weekend this is the perfect choice for you.
Ham so eggsited, pancakes with ham, egg, cheddar and maple syrup (£8.50).
Eggs Florentine, spinach on toasted English muffin with hollandaise (£8.40).
Pancakes, bacon and maple syrup (£8.50).
Eggs on toast, scrambled on toasted multigrain bloomer with 3 tomato chutney (£6.20).
