“I went to a restaurant that serves "breakfast at any time" so I ordered French toast during the Renaissance.” ― Steven Wright
After being sent the menu for Mel's Cafe I figured it was worth trekking across London for brunch; who can resist a fry up, pancakes and milkshake on a Sunday morning? (answer; not me)
The decor is eclectic and quirky and I loved it - I only had brunch, but they also do a great cocktail menu; they even serve pornstar martinis, although as it was barely lunchtime we refrained.
We sent the lovely waitress away three times as we were too busy gossiping to choose our food. However I eventually settled on The Veggie Works (with a milkshake on the side).
It was totally delicious and filled me right up - of course I'd saved some room because I'd seen Oreo cheesecake on the menu so I ordered one (just for the purposes of research of course!). Afraid there's no photo of that as I wolfed it down in record time.
Satisfyingly the bill came to exactly £30.00 which made us both exclaim in glee as it was so easy to split! Leaving the warm restaurant wasn't quite as enjoyable as it was near freezing and raining - but you can't win 'em all!
I'll definitely be returning next time I'm in SW London and if you live nearby then get yourself down there.
