The Morning After in West London
|| If it’s the
morning after the night before and you need a quick calorie
fix to get you back on track head out to one of West London’s
best breakfast venues.
The Squat & Gobble [map],
Tottenham Street, is a particularly popular place for
the first important meal of the day. Don’t be put
off by the strange name, The Squat & Gobble is a great
place to grab a veggie or meat fry-up and there’s
also a large selection of sandwiches made using organic
Those who didn’t spend all of their money on booze
the previous night might like to consider The Fountain [map],
Fortnum & Mason, Piccadilly, for the morning after.
As you’d expect from a restaurant inside this premier
food store, The Fountain serves some excellent cuisine.
Choose from a selection of global breakfast dishes or go for the luxurious Fortnum’s Farmhouse
Breakfast. The restaurant is open from 8.30am
and is the perfect place for a pre-work pick me up.
Another famous name that offers a great breakfast is Sotheby’s
New Bond Street. Perfect for catching up with friends
in an informal atmosphere, Sotheby’s Café
has plenty of expensive paintings on display. Breakfast
dishes are light and continental – just the right
size if you’re counting the calories.
The Cow Dining Room [map],
Westbourne Park Road, Notting Hill, is the perfect place
to spend a relaxing afternoon. Tom Conran – son
of Sir Terence – brings a unique atmosphere to this
dining experience. A breakfast here is certainly a culinary
experience but why not enjoy a lunch too? Once inside
you won’t want to leave.
Head to Portobello Gold [map],
Portobello Road, for a great Sunday lunch and a glimpse
into the market trader culture. Friendly staff are on
hand to tell you the best places to visit in Notting Hill
and the food is simply delicious.
