London brunch review - Tom’s Deli. Seriously, I need to work on myself. Although it is hard to believe, but there actually are some hidden spots out there in West London. In between the residential areas and superficial eateries with the charm of a flat line on the ECG monitor you can find a few places which put a smile on your still tired weekend morning face. So, bring them on!

 

My request was somewhere with an outside area. A little oasis. Not too easy, except you want to sit right on the road soaking up London’s exhaust fumes and shouting over the table in order to predominate the acoustic environment.

 

However, believe it or not – we found such a café. Placed right on Westbourne Grove but hidden behind a bus stop colourful lollipops welcome you into the small sweets-filled world of Tom’s Deli. During you are queuing to be seated the tiny sweets shop gets all your attention. Who is buying all that stuff? Or is it just there to remind you of your childhood and therefore you immediately feel better, even on a cloudy day?

 

What definitely makes you feel great is the cakes on display on the left hand side and little brownie pieces ready to be tasted by the waiting customers. The friendly waitress leads us to our tiny table outside. It’s a bit narrow, but with a high level of body control we snake through the tables of the cutely decorated interior, eyes fixed on the plates, keeping down soaring jealousy and finally we step out the backside door and look down on the smallest backyard you have ever seen. But aren’t especially small things which are difficult to access the teasers of live?

 

The menu offers everything you can ask for: there are eggs, there is pastry, there are omelettes, there are cereals and of course there is The Full English as well as the vegetarian option. We go for the “Smoked Salmon, Asparagus and Scrambled Eggs” and the “Poached Eggs & Avocado on Sourdough Toast with Pico de Gallo, Chili and Coriander + Chorizo” accompanied by two Bloody Marys. The food was excellent – the asparagus was firm to the bite, the bread was toasted exactly right, the chili spiced up our lives and the eggs both the scrambled and the poached got the right texture. I missed the celery with the Bloody Mary though, because the red and green colour combination just feels right.

 

Stomach filled I wish there was a bit more space and the chairs were a bit comfier so that I can lean back, enjoy a second Bloody Mary and let the vodka create a dizzy layer over this Sunday noon. Maybe the better that there weren’t, because this way I can remember all details of the trip. Sometimes it’s good to leave your own neighbourhood and explore new streets and squares – on the way I saw another place I should definitely have a look into.

 

And this is exactly what you all should do as well – therefore: Go for brunch, London!
