Breakfast at Parlour, Kensal Rise

Parlour Kensal Rise Full English breakfast

With the rise of the alternative and quirky breakfasts in London, I'm so thankful that my city never falls short of these new-age breakfast spots. But saying that it's always good when you find a traditional bistro serving up the classics in such a cosy spot. Parlour is a hidden gem tucked away down a quiet side street just north of Regent's Canal in Kensal Rise.

An eatery serving food and alcohol for 18 hours a day, which is neither a restaurant nor a pub but, in the words of its chef/owner, Jesse Dunford Wood, an 'all-day serving parlour' - hence the name.

After seeing the beautiful breakfast/brunch offering I went to try and test the food and the spot for myself, and I have to say I was really impressed. 

The look of the place is more of a bistro, with casual leather seats and an airy upmarket vibe. You can grab a magazine and hide away for the entire day here.

Parlour Kensal breakfast coffee

What to drink: 

They take coffee quite seriously as well as having a wide selection of teas including olive leaf and camomile. The iced tea and coffee are great Summer refreshers or why not go for a traditional Mimosa.

Smoked salmon, full English breakfast Parlour Kensal Rise

What to eat: 

The (No-Subs) Full Parlour Breakfast - not only is the presentation 10/10, the breakfast is well made, delicious and goes down a treat. The usual "Full English", the Parlour breakfast includes scrambled eggs, baked beans, sausages, bacon, mushrooms and hash browns. Along with an unlimited toast-your-own bread station. I also have to commend that the hash brown have been seasoned with herbs and compliment the taste massively, very good shout. 

Home-Style-Hash Brown with Eggs any Style - I recommend poached.

‘Back Door’ Smoked Salmon & That Soda Bread  - the salmon is smoked in house and the taste is incredible.
