The Pavilion Café

Rating: Eggs Royal

 

London brunch review - The Pavilion Café. The Pavilion Café is situated in Victoria Park in East London. The owners Brett Redman and Rob Green already started years ago to enrich the park with their excellent takeaway coffee, sandwiches and some brunch.

 

Suddenly things started to change though two and a half years ago: the diggers came along… and renewed, changed and beautified the greens and ponds of voted England’s most favourite park. The reason? Everything had to be perfect for the Olympics 2012! The only public viewing outside the Olympic Park in Stratford and Hyde Park could be found at the north-eastern end of Victoria Park. Everyone came along… East End families to have a picnic, school children to support Team GB, hipsters to listen to the Live Bands, yes, even Boris Johnson jumped on the Flying Fox provided besides the huge screens. As diversified the people were they had one thing in common: they all passed by the small but more than cute The Pavilion Café.

 

And there it kicked off: all tables occupied and a queue to place the order – The Pavilion Café seems the place to be in and around Victoria Park. The coffee is made (or better to say – created) by young baristas with scrubby hair. They are quick, they are friendly and they always have a smile on their face. The breakfast/brunch menu contains approximately 10 dishes and only lasts till the ingredients are gone, but gives you exactly what you want and what you need. They serve pancakes, eggs every style and the classics including three different versions of The Full English Breakfast. From 12pm onwards small dishes like fancy sandwiches and salads are being served. All ingredients are fresh, the bread is still warm when it is delivered and the eggs and milk are provided from a single farm respectively. Be careful not to trip over the crates full of tomatoes and salad placed right in the middle of the small interior. The croissants and pains au raisin are gone by midday and are then replaced by the most delicious pastry handmade in front of all the people by the pastry chef. During watching him just grab whatever you want from the showcase – it contains yoghurt with granola, fresh juices, iced coffee, ice-cream and some beer and cider brewed locally.

I went for an iced coffee, “Smoked Salmon with Scrambled Eggs on Rye” and a chocolate brownie with cinnamon cream and a cherry on top. Brunchtastique is all I can say!

 

The main course was served shortly after I placed my order and so I could enjoy the eggs which melted on my tongue and I could really taste the happiness of the chickens they were coming from. The bread was toasted perfectly and the whole thing got even better with a bit of freshly squeezed juice from the lemon on the side of the plate. And the brownie? I’m not sure if I should really write down my thoughts here or if this website then gets censored. Try it is all I can say! And then sit down next to the pond, soak up the fresh air, listen to the birds singing in the trees above you, enjoy the view and dream away…

 

You want all of this? Then - go for brunch, London!
