Notting Hill Pastels

Nowhere does pretty little pastel houses like Notting Hill.

Winding streets flanked by sugared almond homes, from dinky little mews houses to stonking great town houses. It’s a veritable visual feast.

Perfect for any budding Instagram addicts out there.

Notting Hill pastels

Pounding the pavements in the most weather appropriate of shoes…

Denim n heels

But as lovely as a feast for the eyes is, it doesn’t quite hit the spot quite as well as a proper feast.

For the latter you’ll want to head to Egg Break.

Eggbreak Notting Hill-3

Sailing proudly atop a sea of pastels, it’s a corking little brunch spot.

It even has a pretty extensive juice menu, for those that way inclined.

Eggbreak Notting Hill-4

See? There’s charcoal and everything.

And as we all know, a good healthy juice counter-balances any culinary indiscretions.


Eggbreak Notting Hill-6

A bit of a brunch marvel, and fab all day breakfast spot.

You would hope that a place called Egg Break wouldn’t disappoint on the egg front, and it doesn’t.

Eggbreak Notting Hill-7

In fact it offers up some of the finest yolk porn this side of the Atlantic.

Eggbreak Notting Hill-8

Avocado heaped on top of toasted, crunchy, chewy sourdough. Dripping with perfectly runny egg yolk, just begging to be mopped up.

Eggbreak Notting Hill-10

Eggs benedict on potato hotcakes with…

…wait for it…

Sriracha *pause for effect*  hollandaise.

A game changer.

Eggbreak Notting Hill-11

Crunchy french toast, stuffed with banana and rolled in cornflakes for the crunch.

I told you this place doesn’t mess around!

Eggbreak Notting Hill-12

And the pièce de résistance… the McMuffin.

Eggbreak Notting Hill-13

Sausage, egg, cheese, muffin.

Or, order a Rosie McMuffin and have it with sausage, egg, cheese, avocado, bacon & siriacha.

Breakfast really doesn’t get much better.

  • The slow pace

    I was in London last weekend with a group of friends and we had three different brunches, all of them wonderful. I guess now we have to come back because that brunch looks better than all the three we had together!
    By the way, there is a little neighbourhood in Bremen that has the most charming pastel, tipically German houses. I’m sure you’d love it! (It would match your shoes too 😉

  • Now that’s a perfect breakfast, I totally envy you now :))

  • Ooo that Rosie muffin concoction looks effing fab! Love Andrea xxx

    Rosie, can I make a tiny suggestion for your blog?My favorite post ever of yours (maybe on any blog ever) was Goodbye 2012. It was so real, so honest, and something we all can relate to – having to start over when life doesn’t go as planned. I love your blog, and 90% of the time, I do want to see gorgeous pictures of clothes, vacations, and food. But every once in a while, I would love to see something deeper. XOXO Jen

  • Love a bit of egg porn! These dishes all look delicious, there is nothing better than eggs for brunch. Loving the pink shoes too, very girly and pretty.

  • MITH Magazine

    Super cute outfit! Notting Hill is such a pretty place. Need to try this restaurant in London! x

  • Kari Guastella

    Those pink shoes are just too cute! Love them!

  • I have wanted to go to Eggbreak for so long and this has just completely confirmed it!! Booking it in my diary for next weekend pronto! xxx

  • I always loved the Notting Hill houses! I used to say that when I grew up I would live in one of those….I’m still growing up so I think I still have a chance hahha
