London brunch review - Ozone Coffee Roasters London. Have you ever been to New Zealand? When I arrived in Auckland many years ago I was surprised by the high amount of cafes and restaurants with tables outside. It seems that literally everyone is out for brunch on a Sunday. And – thank God – they brought that attitude with them to London!

 

Back in March 2012 I read about the opening of “Ozone Coffee Roasters London” and immediately put it on my wish list with brunch places I wanted to go to. They promised excellent coffee, so I had to check it out! Since then I have been there by myself, with friends, even my parents and every single time made me come back.

 

The staff is super friendly and they already bring you the menu during the time you are waiting in the queue. To be honest at this point of the visit I can’t concentrate on what I’m going to eat later, because first I have to observe the interior. A huge mirror on my left hand side gives you the impression this café is massive and the industrial chic with its bare bricks and the grey pipes running down the wall turn this place into something very cool – you just can’t help yourself, you want to stay!

 

In front of me cakes, cookies, flapjacks and cupcakes are on display, people sitting along the bar. On the other side you can watch your brunch being cooked and it all seems to have more of a living room atmosphere than a cold eatery what you could expect around Silicon Roundabout. Newspapers are on display (read the “Caffeine Magazine”!!!) and therefore it can happen quite easily that you forget the time, because you are dreaming away over the suggested travel ideas in front of you on a grey Sunday afternoon.

 

Downstairs is even more comfy with a huge coffee roaster, bags full of coffee beans lying around and you get the feeling of sitting right in the middle of where the black deliciousness is being produced. Therefore I guess it is not necessary to mention that every cup you order is very tasteful. I even tried the Decaf once, which is like a non-alcoholic beer to me, but I have to admit, it was really good indeed.

 

And now let’s have a look at the menu: it is divided into food you want to have right after getting up, eggs and lunchy stuff. The morning treats include cereals, muesli, French toast and toast with jam. I tell you what – the “Coconut and date granola with vanilla bean berries and Greek yoghurt” doesn’t only look colourful and healthy, it also is a perfect combination of smooth, crunchy and fruity.

 

Extra orders are no big deal, so I’m having the “Portobello mushrooms on toasted sourdough with Swiss cheese, basil & crème fraiche” plus a poached egg on the side… it just had to be added! And it is served in such a cute little pan; I almost don’t want to touch it. I take another sip of my spicy and biiiig Bloody Mary, take a deep breath and kill the egg, its yolk running over the mushrooms and getting soaked up by the slice of sourdough.

 

One more thing before I sum this up: go for the omelette. The one with smoked salmon. Not only that it fills you up for the day, I just think this is right. Every café in London should have it on the menu. And you can give it the last perfect touch yourself; just use the sea salt provided on the table and put a bit of it on top. There we goooooo… heaven!

 

Writing about all this, looking at the pictures and thinking of how to describe it best actually makes me want to return as soon as possible. I will put a date in my diary when I’m done here.

 

So, therefore – go for brunch, London! I have an important entry to make…
