The last time I visited here was about 20 years ago I worked out, as it was the same length of time since the last time I saw the musical Notre Dame de Paris in London.

This was the last day of my recent London trip, so it was time to grab some lunch and here was the perfect spot to have it in.

Looking Around

Inside is very traditional and classy, it has a posh Italian cafe style feel to it. The atmosphere is really nice, and you get cosy as soon as you sit down.

It was busy today so I didn’t want to take any inside photos, as people were enjoying chatting and eating.

The Food…

EGGS BENEDICT Β£8.95

Sliced roast ham on toasted focaccia bread, two poached hen’s eggs with hollandaise sauce and chives

Now, this was an odd option for me, as I am not a big egg fan but I haven’t had it in a very very long time and thought let’s try it and see.

I started with the fries and have to say these were nice, I think there were some rosemary hints coming through? whatever it was these were nice.

The Eggs Benedict I started and have to say wow this was very good!!! I would have this again as I loved the flavours. This has converted me from not having eggs to starting them again.

Overall

20 years later and the food atmosphere and service is still really good.

Yes, the prices are a little higher than you would normally want to pay, but one its London and to the location as it’s right next to Harrods.
