ATE AT: Duck & Waffle, Heron Tower

First things first...WOW! I have been dying to try Duck & Waffle for an incredibly long time. I had heard wonderful things about the food, the service and...THAT VIEW.

I insisted on this visit down to London that we needed to go to Duck & Waffle for breakfast. Unfortunately, deciding this four days before my arrival - we could only get a 7.30am booking (which I am most definitely not complaining about as I know people who have had to book weeks and weeks in advance before!) Thankfully for two very lazy breakfast-goers, the clocks had gone back so waking up at 6am to get ready, perk ourselves up and get across to Heron Tower didn't feel so bad (plus I was that excited - and you know what, it's okay to get this overexcited about food and/or a restaurant!)

We entered the building and after being asked for our reservation details, we told those fateful words 'go up to floor 40 please!'

In under a minute we were up there, entering the D&W doors.

We took our seats and spent a good 15 minutes staring out of the window before even thinking about the menu - I loved how still London looked. The hustle and bustle that can normally be seen wasn't there; it was a sleepy Sunday morning and the streets were virtually deserted. 

After ordering a pot of tea each - now it was down to business - food time.

Now, I can't lie, I'd already looked at the menu...more than once. I had already decided on the Colombian Eggs with a side of Bacon. And, naturally, a full English was ordered from the other side of the table.

The food arrived. We weren't disappointed. My eggs were perfect, seriously, perfectly cooked. You wouldn't believe how bloody difficult some people seem to find cooking eggs to perfection. D&W nailed it. The flavour combination was great, the bacon was great. I was laughed at because apparently the bacon, being organic, was more of a reason I would big it up (not wrong!)

We sat in there for a while, discussing the weekend, work, various other things. The atmosphere was perfect and it felt like we were in our own little bubble up there. I can assure anybody reading this - it may have been my first visit but it will certainly not be my last. Brunch is definitely on the cards before 2014 ends.

To make a reservation, head to their website.



  1. I too have always wanted to go to The Duck and Waffle. I didn't even know they did breakfast. Were you tempted by the Duck and Waffle?

    Also, how good do you look at 7.30 in the morning! I'm very jealous on both counts. I live in Oxford and I love visiting London. Duck and Waffle is definitely on my list and even more so, following this review.
