The last few week have been pretty busy and even my weekends have been filled with one thing or another. So I was really looking forward to this weekend as I knew we had nothing planned and we could have some down-time, just my boyfriend and I.
One of our favourite weekend things to do is go for a leisurely brunch. We had heard rumours that Workshop Coffee was lovely and since Clarkenwell is just a quick Uber away (I swear it’s the only way my boyfriend gets around these days, I’m a little thriftier) we decided to go there on our way into town.
Workshop is somewhere I had been before for meetings, the kind of meetings which include coffee but not food. The coffee at Workshop is amazing, it’s for real coffee lovers and famed for their roasts and beans. Personally, I found my latte so intense I could only handle one before I moved onto orange juice, but my boyfriend was in his element and ordered two because he couldn’t get enough of the coffee buzz! Clearly I’m not a coffee connoisseur as I am ordering lattes rather than expressos.
For brunch my man had eggs Benedict. I had poached eggs on sourdough bread with some sides of avocado, tomatoes and bacon. It’s hard to know where to start as it was pretty much perfect! The eggs, bacon, avacado, everything was fresh, well cooked, using great ingredients. My boyfriends was also incredible, perfectly cooked eggs, succulent ham hock and a rich sauce. The portions were also prefect; generous enough to be a big hearty brunch, but not so big you can’t finish it.
If you haven’t been to Workshop, it’s well worth trying, there are a few around London (I went to Clerkenwell) and the coffee and food is amazing. It’s really relaxed, fair prices and the service is great! I will definitely be going back, I really loved everything about Workshop and so did my boyfriend!
