As part of our staycation experience we are visiting a couple places for brunch before I have to head to work. It is easy enough to do as my friend’s place is in walking distance to my temp job.
Our visit this week was to Workshop. It has the trendy urban woody look which I love – raw, rough wood and metal. We rolled in just after 8am and easily got a table. Mr had toasted banana bread with a date spread and espresso mascarpone (second picture from last). I had french toast with orange mascarpone and poached rhubarb (last picture). Mine was perfect although Mr felt his was a bit heavy for so early in the day. I also had fresh mint tea. A place instantly goes up in my estimations when it serves fresh mint tea.
Early morning breakfast outings are certainly something I could get used to but unfortunately living in Wimbledon doesn’t really work with having to get up earlier to commute. Although … my new job does have one day off a week …
