TIME AND PLACE:
@ Jones & Sons, 23 – 27 Arcola Street, Dalston, London E8 2DJ
Meal: £30 for a bottomless brunch including cocktails, food, coffee (normal menu also available)
We were enticed to brunch at Jones & Sons in trendy Dalston over the weekend following a busy few days of summer in London, a delectable breakfast and Monmouth coffee seemed like to perfect way to start the day.
From the appetising range we opted for a simple full english (chargrilled!) and challenged the waiter to serve an extra bit of bacon with the avo on toast – which was happily taken care of.
The restaurant sits off Stoke Newington Road nearly opposite the popular Mangal Turkish restaurant, meaning you’re close to the hustle and bustle but sheltered from the mayhem.
Inside we shared the modern shabby chic interior with pleasant families and groups of friends. Staff were all casual, attentive and friendly which ensured the ideal atmosphere for our meal.
Coming back to the food; the bacon was unbelievable. Those little grill streaks on the bacon (see photo below) combined with the chef’s magic touch left us commenting on the taste for the rest of the day, my fresh grapefruit juice was so refreshing I almost finished it in one gulp. Good thing this brunch is bottomless, you’ll be wanting more…
Bottomless brunch costs £30 per person, available weekends and Friday (Sat 11-4, Sun 11-1, Fri 11-3). Normal menu is also available, including £5 avo on toast or £10 full English. Very affordable and supremely delish.
