London brunch review - Stories. I was confused. My destination was the “Market Café”, but apparently my journey led me to this place. I checked the building. Same location, different interior. This is what happens in East London if you don’t go back to the same square, street or market for a couple of months. Ah, the “Market Café” moved to the beginning of Broadway Market, but what was this? Honestly, in a way I didn’t care. I was hungry and they served brunch – seriously, what else do you want?

 

Later at home I did some research: “Stories” apparently is the 3rd creation of the people who luckily brought “The Queen of Hoxton” and “The Book Club” to our lives. Therefore they are not only serving food and mixing smoothies with something, well… let’s call it that kick-starts your day ;) - no, they also do workshops and art installations. Therefore the interior has a creative touch; an area with daylight coming through the ceiling and big plants give it a living room feeling. Outside right on Broadway Market you will find 3 tables where people can mix and mingle.

 

But let’s focus on the weekend brunch: It is being served on Saturday and Sunday from 10am till 5pm. The menu has two different sections: the typical brunch part with yogurt and granola, pancakes, The Full English Breakfast, also for vegetarians and sour dough toast with different toppings like avocado and mushrooms and they do more dishes including smoked fish, gammon, salads and a lamb burger.

 

You have to order and pay your drinks and food at the bar, where your senses start struggling: on the right hand side the open kitchen, right in front of you the menus, the information you need for the free Wi-Fi access and the bar and on the left hand side the sweet stuff, which you just want to have with your coffee. Value for money is very good since you can fill your stomach for even less than a tenner.

 

I ordered the sour dough toast with avocado and chili flakes with a poached egg extra. This was possible. I also wanted a sour dough toast with mushrooms, egg and crispy bacon PLUS avocado. This wasn’t possible. Guys, be happy that your café booms in the second month, but a bit more flexibility regarding minor changes would be appreciated! I’m more than sure that this will change soon though. My total bill with a cappuccino came to £7.50 only – I’ll be back :)

 

Everything was served pretty quickly: the coffee was tasty and made by a trained barista, especially the iced coffee, the food was really good, no need to add some extra salt and pepper to actually give it some taste, only the poached egg could have been boiled less. Suggestion: Ask people how they prefer their eggs. The next time I definitely have to try the spiked juices and one of the cakes!

 

So, therefore: Go for brunch, London! And off I disappear into the crowd walking up and down Broadway Market…
