Duck & Waffle, London

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"
"What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"
"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.”

Set up in the dizzying heights of the Heron Tower, Duck & Waffle is in the heart of London's city district, offering exceptional seasonal food with 360 degree views of gorgeous London. 

When you arrive, there is a glass lift waiting to whizz you up to the 40th floor.

Speeding past some of London’s best known landmarks, your ears pop and you just can’t help but think you're in the Roald Dahl Classic, 'Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator'

The interior design is a dream - I spent as much time gazing out of the floor-to-ceiling windows than I did taking photos of the floor tiles.

I mean, look at them - they are totally instagram worthy. One day, I'll have these in my kitchen.

We settled in to our seats and ordered drinks, taking in the amazing view of (East) London and beyond.

It may have been just after 10am but, somewhere in the world it was after 5pm - Mimosa's all round!

Duck & Waffle is headed up by Executive Chef, Dan Doherty (who was in the open kitchen when we were there) who focuses on local, rustic, seasonal and sustainable British ingredients.

The brunch menu was full of delicious dishes but, there was only one dish I was really interested in (aside from the 'Full Elvis' which, I intend on having in the not-so-distant future).

How could I not order the restaurant’s namesake?
