    The Red Riding House Café is decked out so brilliantly that you just have to enjoy its glamour - don't expect the food to reach the same standard though. Read more · July 26, 2011

    This brasserie has a busy breakfast trade. Breakfast diners are directed left towards the comfier of the two main dining areas, which has deep leather banquettes and is slightly more private. Read more

    It gets absolutely rammed at night so be sure to book. BarChick prefers it as an afternoon refuge away from the mad crowds. Read more

    Try the Fitzroy Twinkle! Tall, refreshing cocktail made with vodka and elderflower and loaded with raspberries!

    Only serves brunch till 1pm. Get there early. Order a smoothie that comes in funky milk bottles...

    Stylish, cool - grab a booth / table in the second room if you can. Elegant brasserie food at not crazy prices. Attentive staff. Fear the taxidermy squirrel lights!

    Ordered chorizo hash-brown, nice but oddly bland, could do with some spice. Nice ambience in the place though!

    Vegetarian option this month, celeriac and wild mushroom mash with beetroot leaves and duck egg. Delicious.

    Dunno why it is categorised as eastern euro food, its classic modern international brunch. And v good if you don't mind slow service.

    Service was slow, eggs florentine and chorizo hash browns lacked flavour. Buttermilk pancakes were crispy and delicious though.

    Burger was perfect post workout. Has truffled liver parfait

    Very cool inside and a nice breakfast spot. Skip the chorizo hash though, all the reviews calling it bland are spot on.

  • BarChick

    Finally, somewhere decent to escape the hectic hoards on Oxford Street. BarChick prefers it as an afternoon refuge away from the mad crowds.

    Pretentious & wanky, and that's just the people. Come here to be scene, otherwise avoid.

    The food is just too salty - you can pinpoint individual grains of salt. Smoothie was great though.

    The sweetcorn hash brown is absolutely incredible - personal favourite, especially if you add a bit of hollandaise on the side!

    Super busy weekdays during lunch time (try after 2:30), definitely book on weekends.

    I've never had lobster for breakfast, now I want it all the time. Mmm :)

    Good atmosphere for a bank holiday brunch, but lunch service after 1, expect a queue! Food was good, though nothing special for the price. Not over priced, not cheap. Chorizo hash - average.
