Florentine – a new all-day dining restaurant and bar minutes from Waterloo, that serves eggs (and other brunch-style dishes) all day. Any place that recognises the godliness of brunch (and therefore the need for it to be available all day, every day) is instantly off to a great start in my mind, but add a huge mix of British/Italian classics including flatbreads in the most incredible flavour combinations and melt in the mouth meats and you have an absolutely winning menu!
It’s safe to say that this place needs absolutely no introduction. I’m sure there isn’t a person in the developed world who hasn’t heard of Ladurée macaroons and so to spend my Saturday afternoon in their tea room was the most wonderful belated birthday surprise* 🙂
I’ve been drafting a post like this forever but getting an email from the woman who’s doing my dress fitting telling me to ‘finish my wedding diet’ before I go and see her kick started me to finish this rant and get it uploaded before it was more of a Summer 2018 post!
Sorry for the chocolate overload recently.. but in my world there’s no such thing as too much chocolate, and I’m sure you all agree! 🙂
You all know how much I love trying new places, and how my infatuation with London stems from all of the incredible independent cafes, restaurants and coffee shops around, but often finding exciting, independent places to eat just isn’t practical.
I imagine a lot of Londoners take all of the incredible restaurants on their doorstep for granted sometimes; just twenty minutes north of London in St Albans and it’s a completely different story.
Don’t you just love it when places live up to expectations!? I’d been excited to go to Pachamama for what felt like forever – it had been arranged and booked for almost a month as Marcus had a busy tournament period and we had a few other brunches lined up but it was so, SO worth the wait.
