Oh what a good saturday I had. After a pretty brutal session at the gym (thanks Obi…) I got ready and met Holly and Karen at The Riding House Café near Oxford Circus. We hadn’t seen each other for a couple of weeks so we had a lot of catching up to do..
The brunch menu is simple with variations on eggs, hash browns and pancakes
Loved the interior. Not a massive fan of the word “chic”, but it felt like it
We all ordered one eggs royale each, because we had another course coming up. I drank an amazing juice made of spinach, apples, coconut juice and kiwi
Aaaaah and the best part; PANCAKES! Crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside. Served with clotted cream, berries and maple syrup. I reaaaally liked The Riding House Café. It had a nice buzz about it and the service was absolutely amazing – huge plus in my books.
After brunch I went home, unbuttoned my jeans and spent a few hours in bed watching netflix. So productive.
Me and my bestie Eva decided to go for a few drinks in Canary Wharf. First stop; Big Easy.Big Easy is an american dining restaurant with live music
It’s dimly lit, quite loud and was surprisingly busy for a saturday in a overall quiet area
Suuuuper long bar with bartenders all dressed in jeans
Slushies! Pina colada and kick-ass lemonade
We both liked Big Easy and will definitely come back for the food (lobster, anyone?!). Once the terrace opens in spring I’m sure it’ll be even busier! After Big Easy we wandered over to The Attic right by South Quay DLR station. It’s a rooftop bar on the 48th floor within Pan Peninsula and you enter via the Tompkins restaurant. The reviews of The Attic are very mixed and I can see why. It wasn’t particularly busy which we didn’t mind, the music was quite odd, drinks were expensive but good, but the best part was the view.
I mean.. Gasp.
We’re already planning on coming back but will try a weekday after work instead. I’d love to see this view in daylight 🙂
