Breakfast in London is a competitive market. Restaurants offer so many varied, wonderful dishes and Instagrammable backdrops that finding somewhere can be a tough decision.
Many know the Bloomsbury Hotel in London for Dalloway Terrace. A bloggers favourite hangout for meetings, afternoon tea or just drinks with friends. It’s famed for it’s constantly instagrammed décor and delicious food, but The Bloomsbury has a new hot spot in town.
The Coral Room is the latest spot in the Bloomsbury to be renovated. Previously a slightly tired reception area with guests spilling over from Dalloway Terrace, it has been completely transformed into a Coral, Art Deco Inspired, destination in itself over just the throughway it was before.
Bubble chandeliers imported from Italy light up the Miami inspired interior bathing it in a warm light while the bespoke blue scallop sofas contrast perfectly with the gold hardware and white marble bar.
Martin Brudnizki has created a feast for the eyes, while the incredibly talented chefs have created some wonderful menus. For breakfast I went way out of my comfort zone and ordered Pea & Feta Smash on sourdough. I’m so happy I did, it was the most unexpectedly delicious breakfast I have ever had. The sweetness of the peas contrasted perfectly with the rich smoothness of the feta and it was the perfect amount to get the day started. In contrast to my sophisticated food choice, I had a hot chocolate which are always exceptional at The Bloomsbury.
Ben had poached egg and porridge with a fresh mint tea which he devoured before we sunk into the plush blue scalloped sofa with our laptops to get some work done.
When you’re working from somewhere so comfortable, it becomes too easy to order pot after pot of tea and before we knew it it was 2.30pm and I had a call from my mum who was in the area so we suggested lunch at Dalloway Terrace.
If you’re in the area, Dalloway Terrace can not be missed. They serve breakfast, tea and coffee, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner so you can pop in for any occasion. It was my Mum’s first ever visit so I was keen to give her a great experience and it’s so lovely to be able to treat my parents to the odd lunch or dinner.
We both went for the Caramelised Sea Scallops in Risotto Nero. The most perfectly cooked scallops on a bed of black risotto. Unbelievably flavoursome.
Ben had the Dalloway Venison Pie which had a perfectly crispy crust filled with a rich filling and then I decided to order a side of truffle chips which I (annoyingly) didn’t touch because I was so full from my main.
My mum and Ben both ordered puddings;
The Lemon Tart
And the Confit Apple.
Both looked delicious and I didn’t even get a look in!
Tummies full, we didn’t get too far, making our way back next door to the Coral Room once more for a glass of prosecco to toast off a perfect day!
