So yesterday marked 22 years of my existence.
I decided there was no better way, than to begin the day in my favourite place, London, with some of my favouritest people.
Somewhere I had worked as a part time hostess a few years ago now, but never dined at, was the first place that came to mind…
Duck and Waffle
Duck and Waffle is located in East London (Bishopsgate), and is the highest restaurant in the UK, boasting unrivalled views over the city.
You can dine here for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, and late night menus.
Basically whenever you fancy because they are open 24/7…
YES YOU HEARD.
24 HOURS 7 DAYS A WEEK.
Because I know how incredible the view is, I had the crazy idea of going for sunrise which, at this time of the year, is 6.30am.
My wonderful friends agreed with my crazy idea and we all set our alarms at 5.30am for a sunrise adventure.
Unfortunately, the weather didn’t cooperate completely.
The low cloud and high altitude of the restaurant meant that we were suspended in the clouds for our breakfast so didn’t get the lust after sunrise.
However at around 7.45am the clouds begun to clear and we finished our cups of tea with a glorious view over London.
So whilst the weather may not be a guarantee should you come here, the incredible menu is.
We devoured a range of breakfast treats, with which we all fell in love and soon forgot about the cloud.
I shared Columbian eggs (Scrambled egg, avocado & chorizo on sourdough) and the homemade nutella and banana waffle with one of my friends.
We may as well have licked the plate clean.
IT WAS AMAZING.
I continued my birthday with some shopping, a coffee at my FAVOURITE tea shop (Amanzi in Soho), catching up with friends before heading back home for a spa evening at Nirvana with my mum.
Here’s to another year of adventure.
Thank you for all the birthday messages 🙂
