Brunch at its best

Last weekend I was meeting up with my old uni housemate who has recently moved to London from her home town of Middlesbrough. She had previously commented on how I always take her to nice places that she would otherwise never know existed, especially in Fulham (Hurrah!). The pressure was on and tummies were rumbling, I tentatively suggested we try brunch at Del Aziz, tucked away behind the Broadway on Vanston Place; I had only ever had dinner previously (our first ever post-don't judge!).

Jess and I are both huge fans of Love Walk and so I was pleased to see Del Aziz equally as packed and popular. The delicatessen was groaning with goodies and mine and my friend’s eyes were practically on stalks when we saw the brunch menu. Declaring that these were her favourite type of cafe’s I felt confident that we had made a good choice and hoped that she could re-create a slice of her much loved North East breakfast spot in SW6! All around us were groups of friends and couples, plates laden with eggs Benedict, Florentine, Spanish omelettes, pancakes, French omelettes- it was unadulterated porn for brunch lovers.

My friend opted for a ‘Wild Orchard’ tea to start and I copied her it sounded so delicious; ‘mouth watering fruits of melon and peach harmoniously blended with pure China white tea leaves’. They have a full tea menu with over 28 artisan teas- as well as juices, smoothies and infusions.

To eat I decided on the ‘build your own omelette’ with ham, mushroom, sautéed potatoes and salad- it was definitely more lunch than brunch but very reasonably priced at £8.95. My friend had the Eggs Florentine and devoured every mouthful, loving the creaminess of the kasaar cheese and hollandaise sauce. The service was very good, especially considering they were full to the rafters and we were really impressed that the tea’s, juices and breakfasts only came to £30 including service. A fun and lively place that I will definitely be returning to- more like these around Fulham Broadway please!
