Darwin Brasserie at the Sky Garden
It’s actually quite hard to conceive a genuinely original breakfast menu without looking like you’re trying too hard or reinventing the wheel. This restaurant has all the classics but puts a great twist on their menu. You can build your own omelette with fillings of your choice, have a charcuterie and cheese board or muffin basket for the table. If it’s a celebratory breakfast make sure to cheers with the High in the Sky drink or Grand Mimosa. The full English or vegan English is rather tasty on the other end try the buttermilk pancake stack with your choice of toppings.
Most importantly, how could we not mention the views! This is the real showstopper as the sky garden is worth a visit in itself let alone coming for breakfast.
I think we have saved the best till last. This restaurant is certainly is winning and how could it not be when it’s located in one of the best well renowned sky scrapers in London.
