Having heard many great things (through word of mouth and in the media) about Honey & Co. it was inevitable that I would have to get myself down there to taste this award winning and delectable food from the Middle East.
Heading in for breakfast, the staff were really welcoming into the cosy (it seats about 20) little café/restaurant. It is situated in W1 between Warren Street and Great Portland Street tube stations, very close to Fitzroy Square. At 8am on a Tuesday morning, the crowds had already began to flock proving just how popular the quaint location has become over the last year and seven months. 12 years in the making, Honey & Co. is the brainchild of married couple Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich. Both are chefs who have been baking and cooking since the age of five and wanted to bring the food that they grew up on in the Middle East to the UK. They say "it is a labour of nothing but love and an extension of our home". The décor is very cute and homely and I can only imagine that this little taste of Israel turns into a place that my friends and I would absolutely love at night.
Sitting down and browsing the extensive breakfast menu, both my friend and I chose the delicious baked flat bread, with yogurt sauce topped with spinach, egg and herb. Absolutely incredible - the flat bread was fresh and the eggs and spinach simply complimented the doughy goodness. Not to be served alone, cherry tomatoes and olives accompanied the meal. Feeling a little greedy, we ordered the Merguese sausage roll as an additional to share which was equally as tasty. Accompanied by an OJ and some water, this is up there as one of my new and favourite breakfast haunts and I have to concur with the chefs, this is definitely a place that is both loving and homely.
The menu is reasonably priced, you can find a list of prices for breakfast in the menu above (I would estimate roughly £10 per head) or check out their website for lunch and dinner. An absolute must in the heart of London.Address: 25a Warren Street, London W1T 5LZ
