There’s something indulgent about taking the time to enjoy breakfast and when sitting comfortably opposite Hyde Park and surrounded by the gorgeousness of Mayfair, indulgence is a must. As much as I like my mixed fruit and seed salads in the morning, an invitation to breakfast at CUT, the restaurant of 45 Park Lane hotel was a welcome treat. The glamour, the sophistication and the oh so French pastry basket. Never has a pain au chocolat looked so good outside of Paris. No word on how many I enjoyed…
Starting with the juice of the day – melon and apple – and my favourite green tea, I rapidly moved on to the main event. How could I possibly choose? Well, put maple syrup on anything and I’m all yours! Face-to-face with a plate of fluffy pancakes with maple butter, a serious dose of maple syrup and three slices of crispy bacon = hello breakfast heaven! A serving of mixed berries balanced out all feelings of guilt. Well, not quite but with forkfuls of deliciousness, who cares about guilt. My breakfast date opted for salt beef hash with poached eggs, leeks and a heavenly rich Béarnaise sauce. A breakfast of champions. Very lucky champions indeed.
