House-Cured Var Salmon, Scrambled Eggs, Homemade Rye Bread – £8 – Jessica
Ever since we left Sheffield, we have lost touch with going out for breakfast and brunch, and we do miss it! It made us very excited for today, as we were heading to Golborne to a place we have been wanting to go to for a long time!
I remember spotting it back in January when we visited nearby Golborne Deli. It is also all over Instagram accounts that we follow, so we hoped to follow suit and get some great snaps too (get it?!)
As soon as we were sat, we were asked if we’d like a drink. Being a traditional man, this wasn’t a problem as I almost always go for a latte, but Jessica does like to explore the menu and doesn’t like to be rushed as soon as she is seated. It’s just down to personal preference I guess. When it arrives, the coffee was very smooth and extra hot – just like we asked.
Kedgeree – Smoked Haddock, Cured Salmon, Tomato, Spinach, Soft Boiled Egg, Cumin Salt – £10 – James
I, James went for the Kedgeree – an old favourite of my Mum’s, and something I haven’t had for quite some time. The egg and tomato went perfectly with the salmon and haddock. It was an extremely tasty dish!
Jessica went for the classic salmon and scrambled eggs, but of course being at Snaps + Rye, on rye bread. I managed to steal some and that bread was so soft, just perfect!
If we were ever to open our own Food & Baker cafe, we would certainly be taking inspiration from here for it’s aesthetics and appearance. Minimalistic and simple, but it’s extremely effective and gives off a relaxing vibe for a Sunday morning. The walls are arty and there is a section where you can purchase their own purchase from both British and Danish suppliers. It’s surprising that this is the only Danish restaurant in London. If this one is anything to go by, there should be plenty more! But this place doesn’t only stand out for that reason, it has been voted no 20 by Time Out in their list of London’s best 100 restaurants.
As delicious and filling as my Kedgeree was, I couldn’t leave without having one of the sweet items that were tantalisingly on display by the counter. Chocolate brownie is one of my favourites and I was confident this one would be special. Indeed it was – the texture and taste was great and complimented perfectly by the cream. The presentation was also a bonus.
Chocolate brownie with walnuts – £1.95 – James
If you are looking for a relaxing weekend brunch, this is the best we have so far come across in London. It comes highly recommended.
