I was singing the praises of my neighbourhood last week when I wrote about Snaps+Rye, my Danish refuge in Golbourne Road… Well this time I am taking you south of the hood, all the way down Portobello and across Notting Hill Gate – basically the other side of the world in Notting Hill terms – to Eggbreak, a cool brunch spot that now also serves dinner! Seems to be the thing to do at the moment. Maybe my concept of “brinner” is finally going to happen? Or is it like “fetch” and I should stop trying to make it happen? Answers on a postcard please.I first went to Eggbreak when it first opened last Summer, eager to try a new brunch place in the area. Because this is what my life is like now. I get excited about local restaurant openings. I used to be cool and have a life, now I brunch. Anyway – self-flagellation aside, I quickly came to the conclusion that Eggbreak was a pretty sweet brunch spot. I mean who doesn’t dig an egg? After that, I found my way back there a few more times, mostly for brunch or lunch, until I found out they were opened for dinner.
Dinner at Eggbreak is pretty much typical diner fare, with a slightly more sophisticated twist. Because you know, every restaurant in London has to have a twist otherwise they aren’t legally allowed to open. The interior was entirely refurbished recently too so expect to gobble up your towering burgers and juicy chicken wings in a Pinterest daydream. If you need comfort food and a homely atmosphere (that looks better than your own home), then Eggbreak will do just the trick. And in case that’s not enough for you, they also serve some pretty mean cocktails. Are you happy now?
(Oh yeah – they also take reservations for dinner, which is unheard of in London, so get in there!)
