Bank Holiday Weekend came and went in the snap of a finger. While it’s always nice to get out of the city for the three day break, sometimes it’s nice to kick back and catch up with friends, which is exactly what I did this past weekend. I met up with my friend Lizz for brunch at The Dalloway Terrace, which I’ve previously posted about here. It’s one of my favourite terraces for cocktails alfresco and meeting up with friends and Ciaran after work or on the weekends. It’s located just off Tottenham Court Road and hidden down Great Russell Street just behind the Bloomsbury Hotel. It’s a gorgeous, tree lined garden with fairy lights, beautiful decor, comfy seating and the service is always spot on.
On this particular occasion, Dalloway Terrace was decked out with fresh flowers in honour of the Chelsea Flower Show and it made the venue even more beautiful than it already is.
Lizz and I kicked off our brunch with a couple of crisp mimosas and chatted away about this and that.
There was a great DJ playing upbeat, tropical-inspired mix ups that created a really fun atmosphere. After chatting and catching up for quite some time, we decided to share a few plates and order some glasses of prosecco.
We shared the Dorset Crab on toast, which was absolutely delicious. It was so good that I recommend getting an order just for yourself because you won’t want to share! The fresh crab was piled high on sweet granary bread topped up with slices of egg that made for a delectable, moorish dish.
For something on the sweeter side, we ordered the French Toast with berries and a sweet cream cheese spread on the side. French Toast is my favourite and this was nothing less than exceptional.
We ordered one more glass of prosecco (it was Bank Holiday after all!) and tried to map out our mini gals trip we are hopefully taking next week! As we finished our glasses, we decided to pack it in and head on home. Overall, it was a lovely brunch with wonderful company and food.
The Dalloway Terrace has quickly become my go-to spot for not only cocktails, but brunch too. As we were leaving, I spotted some people enjoying the afternoon tea, which looked delightful. I will definitely be bringing my mom and sister when they’re visiting from the US in August!
