Ohh the joys of breakfast, I just can’t explain my love for it, its rather all consuming I mean I even go to bed looking forward to eating breakfast the next morning. Is that normal? Anyway when I express my love for breakfast I am also including brunch in this, obvs.
So what better place to tell you about when I am declaring my love for breakfast and brunch than The Ham Yard hotel, which I recently found does an exquisite brunch. Now I am a slight creature of habit (I blame my Dad for this) but when I find somewhere I like to eat I tend to go back there again and again. Which is what I have been doing with breakfast as of late. If ever I have a breakfast meeting or a friend suggests breakfast my first reaction is always the Soho Hotel, which is a firm favourite (read my review here). So I decided in the last couple of weeks to venture out more and try new places, if you follow my instagram you will of seen all these new breakfast adventures. I mean I still order the same thing most breakfasts but you know baby steps and all that, and plus whats not to love about smoked salmon, scrambled eggs and avocado. Its perfection on a plate!
So on one very adventurous Sunday I decided to take a trip to The Ham Yard hotel, which is owned by the same family as the Soho Hotel which is the Firmdale hotel group. Its based right by Piccadilly Circus so pretty easy to get too! The decoration in this hotel was amazing, I loved it. I am a sucker for good decor, so I was pleased from word go.
So I decided to go crazy and order eggs benedict, I know no salmon!! But it was a great choice, I am not normally a big fan of hollandaise sauce but the sauce was very light but creamy so got a thumbs up from me. Also the ham was so thickly cut I was in ham heaven…..ham heaven at the Ham Yard….oh aren’t I funny, mega lolz and all that. So yes we established the ham was great, and the muffins were excellent too definitely freshly baked which I appreciated immensely. I ordered a pineapple, orange ginger juice to start which was nice, not my normal green but you know breaking all the rules. I did stick with an almond milk cappuccino to go with my brunch which was very tasty, I love almond milk in my coffee and it makes me so happy that more and more places are offering it on the menu!
So if your ever around central London on the weekend and fancy breakfast or brunch in a beautiful hotel, The Ham Yard is the one. Or the Soho Hotel, either or I can’t decide which I prefer they both do delicious food. And thats what really matters right? x
