A couple of weekends ago, I met up with Rosie for a catch up over brunch. You might remember that the last time we went for brunch, we went to Farm Girl cafe on Portobello Road. We always try to find a place that we both have been longing to visit, or a new place that one of us has found on Instagram. When Rosie asked where I would like to go on this occasion, I suggested Dalloway Terrace – a beautiful winter escape in the centre of London, just off Tottenham Court Road. I had first spotted it whilst scrolling through my Instagram feed, and was pleased to discover that Rosie had also seen it previously and wanted to visit. Unfortunately we couldn’t book a table for the two of us on a Sunday as we’d left it a little late, and this place gets booked up far in advance! However, we were told that they keep a certain number of tables available for walk ins, so we decided to still go and hope there was a spare table on the day.
Meeting at 12.30pm, I wasn’t sure of our chances, but to my surprise they did indeed have a table available for two people! (This never happens in London, not with my bad luck anyway). As I waited for Rosie to arrive, I perused the menu and quickly decided upon the scrambled eggs on focaccia bread, with parma ham. Scrambled eggs are probably the one style of eggs that I’m not that fussed about. It’s not something I would ever normally choose. However, the addition of focaccia bread and parma ham really intrigued me.
As soon as Rosie arrived and took one look at the menu, she also decided on the scrambled eggs! We always seem to do this wherever we meet up. It works well, as it least neither of us will have food envy – that’s the worst!
To accompany our eggs, we ordered a juice each. I opted for a watermelon and mint juice which was DELICIOUS! I don’t think I’ve ever had watermelon juice before, it’s not something you always find on offer, but it is incredibly refreshing. The addition of mint was the perfect balance too. Just what I needed to perk myself up on a dreary, rainy day in the city.
To our surprise the restaurant never filled up whilst we were dining, so we were able to take a couple of photos of the beautiful interiors. Located just outside the Bloomsbury Hotel, this stunning terrace has been decorated full-on winter ski lodge, complete with fur blankets on each of the seats. The marble tables, and stainless steel cutlery and salt and pepper mills, made it the perfect Instagram spot to eat at. They clearly know what they’re doing when it comes to decor!
As we were leaving, the place began to fill up with diners there to experience their afternoon tea menu. As we watched the three tier plates go by, we thought to ourselves – we must go for afternoon tea on our next catch up! It looked fantastic.
Whichever meal you decide to enjoy at Dalloway Terrace, I would highly recommend heading there as soon as possible. I’m not sure when the winter decorations will come down, but it’s a must for any blogger/influencer. And the food is pretty damn perfect. I couldn’t find any faults whatsoever with our scrambled eggs and juice. The flavours and presentation were 10/10.
