Freshly baked goods surrounds the all day dining floor bistro of Les Deux Salons just off from Trafalgar Square. Come in early with the morning risers to the two-floor eatery. The ground floor offers an all day bistro café, whilst upstairs have a French brassiere eatery with private rooms. The Parisian inspired brassiere is filled with mirrored ceilings, elaborate lighting and sweeping spiral staircases.
Les Deux Salons invited a few bloggers for an early morning breakfast event. Arriving a little late other bloggers tucked into golden flaky pastries, mini bowls of fruits, yoghurt pots and cold press juices by Botanic Lab. Jugs of freshly pressed juice filled the table along with pots of tea and coffee.
For the main cooked breakfast I opted for a French omelette, ever since I’ve been to George’s in Paris last year, I’ve become obsessed. Mastering the French omelette can be tricky business and you have to work fast to curd and make it smooth to getting it on your plate in one piece. The omelette I had was slightly over cooked and rubbery but the ingredients used inside were top notch. Meaty sautéed mushrooms, melted gooey cheese and aux fines herbes had flow blown flavour.
I always wanted to try French toast at a restaurant or café to compare to the one my dad makes.
A tremendous thick slice of warm toasted bread was presented with handfuls of berries and strawberries. Drizzled with a running golden honey, the crust is crunchy with a soft sweet filling. Can anything this sweet is so heavenly made for brunch?
I enjoyed brunch at Les Deux Salons, you have the traditional French classics, and a great selection of eggs dishes how you like it. Next time I would love to try the croquet monsieur’s and benedicts. Bring along the kids as Les Deux Salons offers complimentary breakfast or brunch to children under 5.
