tom’s kitchen (chelsea)

During our latest visit to London, we discovered Tom’s Kitchen, located in Chelsea. I was looking for a breakfast place in the neighbourhood, since we would be spending part of the day there when Foursquare led me to this place. After walking a few blocks in all directions but Cale Street (where it is located) we finally got ourselves seated, just in time for breakfast. Set in a townhouse, this is the informal counterpart to Michelin starred Tom Aikens restaurant. On the menu: comfort food, from breakfast to dinner.

Our perception was that this place was rather frequented by locals as I didn’t spot any tourists (or they were really good at hiding it).
Anyway, I had the most delicious granola at this place. They serve the yoghurt and honey separately which is how I like it (yes, I can be high maintenance at some point).
My husband isn’t the breakfast type of guy and doesn’t have the same appetite that I have, but when I ask him about his favorite breakfast ever, he still mentions this one. I think it possible that he’s just as much into assembling his own food as I am (the photo with the bagel and the salmon does explain it all).

Aside from the food, they have the best light available which is something I always notice when I step into a place (blame it on the photography background, will you?). Of course, a marble countertop doesn’t do any harm either.

By the time we had finished our breakfast turned brunch, early birds for lunch were arriving and by judging their lunch menu (did I spot butternut squash? Oh, I guess I did), I can’t blame them.

Hungry already? Tom’s Kitchen also has other locations in Canary Wharf and Somerset House, aside from the Chelsea one we visited.
