I met up here with friends for a leisurely Saturday breakfast chosen as it appears to be building up quite a reputation.
The full English breakfast is regarded as a staple of traditional English cuisine and is served in “greasy spoons” (working mens cafes). This certainly isn’t a “greasy spoon”. The decor has a hint if the country about it, with handmade table cloths and napkins, the food served on bone china; it’s very easy to forget that you are in the heart of Soho, London.
I ordered the Full English without any additions; my plan was to allow space for the highly recommended Sticky Toffee Pudding.
My breakfast arrived hot, nicely cooked and simply presented with my toast on a separate plate just as I like it. The bacon and tomato was spot on, my only issue was with the (tasty) sausage, it contained so much meat (apparently 80%) it crumbled on cutting in to it... but I can live with that!
I would not normally order Sticky Toffee Pudding as I find they are usually a very ordinary sponge smothered in a sickly sweet pouring sauce but this STP was as described... the toffee was sticky and the sponge was rich with the homely flavour of treacle with just a hint of salt, very comforting, not overpowering and nicely complimented with a simple custard.
The Staff were chatty, polite and friendly. Everything passed muster, even for a pedant like me... from the salt and pepper pots running freely, the clean bottle of Heinz (of course) tomato sauce and the often hard to find in London... clean toilets.
