Brunch at Tom’s

One of the first things I wanted on my return to London was a mean fry-up.

You know, a proper one with all the trimmings?

I’d promised to catch up with an old friend in Chelsea, so knew just where we should go;


Everyone knows about Tom’s Kitchen, it’s been around for years.

Valentina & I discovered it when I first moved to London and lived in Fulham.

It was only a short bus ride away and cured whatever badness we’d been upto the night before.

A long standing affair was ignited.

The food is good ‘n’ comforting, ingredients are local, sustainable… the best of the best.

Everything weekend fodder should be.

I went for the classic; full English.

We shared avo toast.

And he tucked into eggs royale.

Washed down with oodles of tea.

Enjoying life on the edge in my white shirt!

If Tom’s isn’t already in your regular rotation, I think it should be.

Especially as you can book a table, which seems to be increasingly unusual in London, especially at Brunch time.

The only rule is that once you’re done, you have to walk off those sausages.

Join the well heeled throngs of Yummy Mummies and take yourself for a little Chelsea stroll.

Weekend uniform?

Ripped denim, crisp whites & barely there sandals.

Ridley denim (or tall/little) // White shirt // Holborn heeled sandals

Kendra Scott necklace // Jimmy Choo sunnies

Phillip Lim satchel

It’s so good to be home.

Restaurants are all well & good, but I can’t wait to get back in the kitchen for some recipe posts!

London, I have missed you so.

    You make a fry up looks so glam, quite an achievement! My favourite blog of all is yours, thank you for allowing us a peek
    into your life!

  • Beccy

    It looks delicious! You cannot beat a full English especially when you’ve been travelling!

  • Claire

    Now that looks like a proper breakfast! I definitely won’t be satisfied with just a bowl of porridge tomorrow morning.
    Love your shoes and bag. Very pretty. I don’t think I would be able to pull off such a glamorous look after eating such a hearty breakfast, ( I would definitely be waddling, with the buttons of my trousers undone! He he)

    Rosie, you’re stunning. Where is the nail polish from? It’s gorgeous.

  • Emily Kalbun

    Breakfast is just the best meal of the day isn’t it? Nothing can beat runny eggs, toast and sausage. Where did you say the sandals were from again? I’m from Canada, and i’m not sure if the store is here across the atlantic. Thnx!

  • Katie Franklin

    Fitted white shirts are the absolute dream – crisp, simple and eternally stylish.. you can’t go wrong! Brunch looks insane. Can’t wait for you to rustle up some NY foodie inspired posts! xxx

  • Ahh looks so good, could eat this right now!


  • Loved all your New York and Dallas posts but it’s equally ace to have you back in the UK! πŸ™‚

  • Love the ladylike pink nails, and all the sausage! – a clean eating bento blog. Japanese or Asian-inspired.

  • That avocado toast looks excellent.

    Where is your bracelet from?

  • AW! I love Tom’s! It was a regular haunt once upon a time!
    Also loving your white shirt- I can never find one fitted enough so may have to pop into Crew….!


  • dani burgess

    I doubt your male friend was too adverse to taking the last picture!
    You look beautiful πŸ™‚

  • Yummy, nothing beats good old english breakfast!

  • Sabrien Dennaoui

    Ohh I love your necklace!

  • gulsen

    Hi Rosie- thanks again for such a great blog post. I was wondering where the beautiful cuff in the first few pics is from? You manage to always accessorise so well! Lots of love

  • Laura

    You look gorgeous, Rosie! Love love LOVE the shoes!

  • Brekkie looks scrumptious, but what I want to know more about is that foxy bracelet!!! Can you share the designer? Your wonderful mum, perhaps???

    Meghan xo

  • When I come back to London I am trying this! You look stunning as always.

  • MissEmmySue

    Okay, those shoes and that bag…I’m dying.
    I love brunch. It’s the perfect cure for, well, anything!

  • Alice

    Hi Rosie! Look like more than your typical fry up! I was wondering how high waisted the Ridley jeans are? So many claim to be high waisted but are really mid rise on my long body!

  • Belle Hankey

    I adore this outfit! It is the embodiment of spring to me!

  • Katja Miller

    What nail polish are you wearing? It is so so springy and fresh and I would love to purchase it for myself

  • Well now I’m hungry at 10.30 on a Sunday night. I knew I should have saved this post until the morning!! x

  • oh gosh delish! And you are wearing my weekend uniform πŸ™‚

  • Abbie Morrow

    Ooo I’m not far from there! Maybe a little trip over the bank holiday… x

  • LOVE the outfit! Simple yet chic and sexy! And saving this post into my “london tips” folder πŸ™‚

  • I love your weekend uniform. The white button up and ripped jeans look great together! I can see myself wearing a black blazer on top for a night out.


  • Can you tell me where your bracelet is from, Rosie?

  • Liza P

    Rosie, what are those black round guys on your breakfast plate?!

  • Is it just me or did your photo quality go up like 100% higher! Or maybe the food was just too beautiful haha

  • Looks amazing! I wish i could nosh on some solid food right now. My tonsillectomy has got me craving all sorts of “blenderized” normal food.

  • oh my goodness, that looks so mouthwatering.. your denim is perfect! love the style and the wash!

  • Ellen Keating

    Love this outfit and of course your brunch looks delicious! Xx Elle

  • I booked in for brunch at Tom’s a month or two ago, and I had a disappointing experience. Some of the best eggs I’ve ever had, but the service was not too great, my avocado was not ripe enough and my Bloody Mary was very watery. Have you had any ‘miss’ meals there among the hits?

    • Thnderbolts

      Agreed – I had a really bad meal there. Not due to the food, but to the appalling service.

  • The weekend uniform is perfect! And the food looks soooo good!

  • Queenie Lee

    Love your outfit, especially the heels! I miss good fry ups! xxx

  • That restaurant looks amazing! I’m planning a trip to London in a few months and I will definitely be making a stop at this place. Thanks for sharing!


  • I have started a little monthly Brunch Club for my London pals and Tom’s has just shot straight to the top of my must try list. x

  • Shade of Red Blog

    You seem to have found the ultimate white shirt, pure perfection!

  • The slow pace

    The breakfast looks great… but that bag looks even better!
    Looking forward to reading about your new kitchen adventures!


  • The eggs benedict look amazing. As does your outfit.

  • Josie Copson

    That looks like an amazing fry up!
    I am in London this weekend and your blog has gave me a multitude of ideas as to where to go for food!

  • Eat Shop Party

    Hi Rosie…I’m going to be in London in a week’s time, and I was hoping you could share the must-visit restaurants/pubs and must-do things there. I’ve been there before many years back and so the touristy locations are all covered. I’m hoping to live a little of the londoner life while I’m there and who better than ‘The Londoner’ to guide me πŸ™‚

  • Cassie L. thanks for inspiring me Rosie!

  • English Breakfast is always the best. Pinned and waiting to be tried once I will get to London again πŸ˜€ Is it Bucket List Doable?

  • Carmen Luke

    I recommend trying this Brunch place near Central St Martin’s at UAL. Hippie interior and fantastic coffee! with fountains outside the restaurant

  • Sophia

    Rosie please tell me where your gorgeous nail polish is from? X

  • Beauts!! I’ve heard of it, but never been. I’m so keen to bank as many brunch places as possible. I just want a huge list of them to choose from on any day of the week.
