I have only ever been to Aqua Shard for dinner, so I thought this would be a good breakfast spot to tick off the list. And of course enjoy the most beautiful views of London. It feels a lot more peaceful at that time of day, and everyone seems to be a lot more relaxed, which is always a good way to start the day.
I’ve been lucky enough to go twice in the last week, so thought I would talk about both experiences. The first time I went was with my lovely mother. I went for the smoked salmon with avocado and creme fraiche and she went for the vegetarian breakfast. One thing I have to say is that the portions are really big – I was not complaining, I was just a little surprised as the portion sizes for dinner are really small. Anyway, it was delicious! You could tell the smoked salmon was really fresh and the avocado was perfect! The veggie option was also really well flavoured, the picture is not great, but it tasted good, which in the end is what matters!
The second time I went was with a journalist. I went for the French toast, with caramelised banana! I never usually go for the sweet options, but I couldn’t resist! It was delicious and so well presented. If you want to go somewhere as amazing as The Shard but not break the bank, going for breakfast here is the perfect way!
