Today the sun was out in London, and finally it felt like the cold winter weather was over. (I don’t want to speak to soon as this is the UK) but I can be hopeful! Anyway, so I had been recommend the hugely popular brunch spot in Wandsworth called Flotsam & Jetsam by Seaney and thought today was the perfect time to go.
Flotsam & Jetsam is an independently owned Antipodean-style café that looks onto the beautiful Wandsworth common. This small yet perfectly compact restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating, and offers all-day brunch, freshly baked pastries, juices and coffees.
Top tip – this restaurant does not take reservations, which for London is unheard of. Therefore, prepare to wait a little while outside. I would suggest getting there early, but I was there at 10am and still had to wait 20 minutes for a table. Fear not, the staff are super friendly and before you know it you are ordering food.
Here is the drinks menu. They offer the best selection of beverages, including coffee by Allpress and tea from T2. So whatever you taste buds are craving, they will have something to suit you. I went for the fresh orange juice, which was so fresh and sweet.
The food is superb. Brunch is definitely my favourite meal, especially when eggs and smashed avo are included. If you fancy taking a peak at the food, have a look here.
The delectable food below includes: Huevos Rancheros (which is gluten free) – 2 fried eggs, smokey braised beans, chorizo, tomato, sweet corn salsa, smashed avo, 2 blue corn tortillas, sour cream. This dish was like a chilli mixed up to be a breakfast combo. Slightly unusual but worked really well. This would be a ideal hangover cure for meat eaters and cost £10.50.
Eggs Royale – 2 poached eggs on wheat & rye sourdough with lime mirin hollandaise & smoked salmon (with a side of avocado). This one was mine and my goodness it was amazing. Unlike smoked salmon I have normally had, this one was more thick cured salmon which I actually preferred. The eggs were also fantastic, and when I cut into them and they oozed all over the bread which is exactly how I love it. Not bad for £10! Although normally I have paid about £7/8 for this, but I happily paid the extra on this occasion.
I really do love brunch!
