As the saying goes “Breakfast like a king” but what does that actually mean?
Eat all the food? Swan for breakfast? Well in my book it means getting up before dawn for a beautiful run through the city’s quiet streets then heading up one of London’s tallest buildings for breakfast delights as the sun came up.
The fact I got to do this all with my favourite girls was just the crown on the morning – so to speak. We visited Duck and Waffle and I thought I would review the experience for you.
We arrived as the sun was beginning to peak through the clouds are were treated to the best seat in the house, scuse our sleepy eyes, alarms before 5 do not make for well rested faces!
First order of the day was caffeine, some beautiful cappucinos, lattes and pots of delicious teas arrived and we took our time deciding about our food as we watched the beautiful view slowly develop.
Food-wise there was something for everyone. We ordered a selection of the teeny-tiny pastries to start us off and enjoyed the homemade nutella with our teaspoons.
A Full English for Lissy, avocado on toast for Charlie, some crazy pimp-my-menu mix up for Harry
And a beautiful bowl of granola, berry compote and yoghurt for me. I may have polished off Lissy’s black pudding as well, may be.
All the food was delicious, beautifully presented and the service wonderful and I would love to go to Duck and Waffle for a sunrise… or sunset again soon. If I can get past the security guard downstairs that is.
Do you have any suggestions for breakfasts with a view for us?
We paid for all our own food and were not invited to write this review. I simply wanted to share the experience with you.
