Brody’s: Review

As I was on holiday last week I took Ben to Brody’s.  I’ve passed it several times on my lunch break.  I was taken by the toasters on the tables – I love the novelty of it all.

Ben works a couple of nights a week, so I caught the train and met him when he finished work.  Brody’s opens at 8am, so we killed some time while we waited for it to open 🙂

Ben made the most of it, and enjoyed cereal, pancakes, toast and even crumpets

Not a terribly vegan friendly joint – I could only find semi skimmed cow’s milk, but then I didn’t ask if they had soya or almond or even skimmed milk.

With breakfast bars it really encourages communal dining.  A bit like a sushi bar, you could end up sat next to strangers, or come with a group.

Ben was impressed with his breakfast, and said that he will put forward the idea of going after work.
