Rise and Shine: SEEN breakfasts at 100 Wardour Street

Heading into Soho for a breakfast meeting? SEEN wasn’t, but had fun checking out 100 Wardour Street. It was quiet on the streets and very pleasant to take a breather as Soho woke up. Funnily enough, I’d seen the bustling cocktail and live music haunt that 100 is at night, but had no idea it also catered for the breakfast crowd.

Ideally placed in the middle of Wardour Street, and formerly the Marquee Club and Floridita, the modern glass frontage means you can gawp at the denizens of Soho (always interesting) whilst enjoying a varied menu of very healthy breakfasts: Acai frozen bowls, eggs, crepes, quinoa, Croque Monsieur, smoothies, detox juices… at low tables in comfy armchairs. I had Eggs Royale – my test of any breakfast establishment, and it did not disappoint. The muffins were warm and the hollandaise fresh. The spinach was nicely crisp, the creaminess of the poached eggs a good match for the smokiness of the salmon, and the herbs scattered over it all.

There’s a reason breakfast is the best meal of the day. It looked lovely and – this is really important, so pay attention, 007 – IT STAYED WARM AS I ATE IT. My pet hate is food that cools too quickly. The Americano I asked for was delightfully bitter and the waiting staff very friendly and laid-back. The modern front is perfect for breakfast while the twinklier bar behind is perfect for the evening crowd and their cocktails. It’s so relaxing, it’s easy to forget you’re in bustling London. SEEN recommends.
