Without sounding like an M&S ad – at Gail’s Bakery bread certainly doesn’t taste like any old bread!
I adore this bakery…even if it is on the pricey side. While I can’t afford to go there as much as I’d like, when I do it means each visit feels all the more special! I treated myself recently to breakfast out, after getting up for an early gym session (shock, horror!) My nearest branch is in Dulwich Village and Gail’s perfectly fits in with the vibe there. It’s always buzzy in there, which is one way they entice you to go in (especially on sunday for a late breakfast!) But, their display of goodies is ultimately what draws everyone in! Unlike when normally eating out for breakfast, Gail’s offers more than just English Breakfast. So it’s a hard choice between the Blueberry Pancakes or Pear & Bircher Museli…even their Bacon Sandwiches are exceptional! After much deciding I went with the Mushroom Ragu. The description is taken right off their website: a creamy combination of mushrooms and goat’s cheese that’s great for breakfast or lunch. Served on sourdough toast with fried egg and baby spinach. The portion was so generous, so you feel you’re getting your moneys worth and any hunger is surely conquered! I also had Earl Grey tea and again unlike most cafes they’re far more generous, giving you more than one cup.
Unless you couldn’t tell, I’d definitely recommend Gail’s if you live or visiting London and there are loads of branches, so it’s easy to fit into your day!
p.s I forgot to mention – their almond croissant are out of this world – no where else compares!
