It’s rare that I treat myself, but last week Stew and I enjoyed a mid week lunch at Flat White, a lovely little Aussie/Kiwi style eatery close to citizenM Bankside. Tucked away down Berwick Street, it can be easy to miss this little cafe in vibrant Soho.
Facing the many food stalls lining this street market, Flat White gives great competition with it’s simple but delicious menu of breakfast and lunch favourites. With fresh artisinal bread and pastries, toasted bagels and some of the best smashed avocado I’ve ever tasted, Flat White hits the spot!
One thing we regularly enjoyed when living in Australia was the great coffee, and the fantastic brunch spots… okay two things! So we were excited to experience some Aussie magic at Flat White, and it didn’t disappoint. Really it’s all in the name, so I opted for their flat white. All of their shots are double as standard, and it was just what I needed on a cold afternoon.
Something to liven the senses, is their avo open sandwich with lime, coriander, chilli and feta. The chilli was hot, the feta creamy, and the lime packed a punch. Stew was so envious that I very nicely offered him a halfway swap. He had chosen their bacon and haloumi bagel, which was equally as yummy in my eyes. With the addition of HP brown sauce, spinach and all wrapped up in a toasted muffin, it was a hearty lunch.
For dessert, although we started tucking into it before our lunch had even arrived, was this gigantic cookie! Baked fresh that day, it was just the right sticky, chewy, warm consistency that makes an amazing cookie. We really should’ve ordered two of these as it was hard to share! I’m not normally a sweet tooth kinda girl, but this was just too irresistible.
If you’re familiar with Soho, you will know that there are hundreds if not thousands of coffee shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. You could live here for years and not get to experience them all. So it can be hard choosing where to grab a takeaway coffee, or where to have a work lunch. But I would highly recommend Flat White. We grabbed lunch at 1.30pm and were able to get a table straight away. Although it’s small, there’s normally room to sit, which is a rarity in Soho… in fact anywhere in London!
In total for two coffees, a bagel, an avocado open sandwich, and a cookie, we paid £19.
