Brunch at Duck & Waffle, London

Whilst on a recent trip to London, I made it a priority to visit Duck & Waffle after hearing such good things about it. Located on the 40th floor of 110 Bishopsgate (one of London’s tallest buildings), the views are breathtaking. In fact, it’s worth going for the views alone!

However, the food is not to be overlooked either. They offer traditional British cuisine with European influences and serve “all day” from breakfast to brunch to late night to desserts. Whether you go at sunset or sunrise, you’ll be able to dine in style.

I went for brunch with Phil in the restaurant, followed by cocktails in the bar area. The restaurant features a vibrant atmosphere, open-kitchen and tasteful décor of weathered wood and white marble. We sat by the window (highly recommended) on a beautifully sunny day, which couldn’t have been better.

Sticking with the namesake, Phil chose the duck and waffle dish which was crispy leg confit, fried duck egg and, mustard maple syrup. The waffle was crisp on the outside and deliciously soft in the middle. Divine!

Meanwhile, I couldn’t decide between a sweet or savory waffle so ended up going for something completely different instead. I had the organic Greek yoghurt with honeycomb and bee pollen, which was the perfect sweet treat. Light but totally moreish! I loved it but would definitely have a waffle next time.

Afterwards, we had a leisurely drink in the bar. Phil went for Colony Cocktail which consisted of Monkey Shoulder, preserved cherry blossom cordial, bark, grapefruit-formica rufa and ginger ale. I opted for Avocado Aperitivo which admittedly wasn’t to my taste but good if you like very strong and unusual tipples!
