December Breakfast

Monday, December 12th, 2011

Upcoming breakfasts

December 14th (this Wednesday!):  Moorgate Buttery

This is just round the back of Moorgate tube station – access made a little trickier by the construction work currently blocking the most direct route from the tube station, but if you go up the stairs/escalators to the Moorfields Highwalk and head towards the Thames, you’ll be able to see it below you after about 50 yards … then head down the staircase ahead of you to get back to it.

All the rest you probably know, but just in case …

Breakfasting venue: Moorgate Buttery

Date of Breakfasting: Wednesday 14th December

Time: 8:00am – 8:45am

Nearest tube is: Moorgate (funnily enough)

Location: 5-6 Fore Street Avenue, London, EC2Y 9DT

Readers of the last entry may be disappointed to hear that Little Baked Bean will not be able to make it to December Breakfast.

Getting ahead of ourselves, we can announce that January breakfast (11/1/12) will be at Rucola, Foster Lane.


November Breakfast – it’s never too early …

Monday, December 12th, 2011

So, you may have wondered what happened to November breakfast.  Perhaps the more cynical and jaded among you may have supposed that it was overlooked – or maybe had become yet another victim of the all-consuming financial crisis.  Not so!

As it happens, November breakfast was a little late, however certain pressing duties undermined suitability of the generally designated day on this occasion – namely the arrival of the newest member of Brekmeister’s family.  Given the distinctly orange tinge to her head covering, we shall refer to her henceforth as the Baked Bean.

Of course, as the good book advises, “Direct your child onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.”  Well I hardly needed more excuse than this to get little Baked Bean out to breakfast as quickly as possible.

November breakfast was duly held in Frankie and Benny’s … who offer a jolly good platter, and would get a hearty thumbs up in general from the Brekmeister, were it not for their misguided policy of only opening at 9am.  You serve BREAKFAST, guys!!  It should be available at BREAKFAST time!!   That gripe aside, they give a good menu,with the obligatory full english – but also a few American stapes (pancakes with bacon and Maple syrup …)
