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 🙂
The door was unlocked, so they let us in a couple of minutes early. There are options from just drinks, to a full fry-up with pancakes, yogurt, toast and cereal. Ben chose the Pancake and Yogurt option which also allows unlimited toast and cereal; and I had unlimited drinks as I had breakfast before I crossed town to catch the train.
We were shown how to use the pancake machine. Simply press the button, and after a few minutes you get two perfectly cooked American Style pancakes. You can then top them with a variety of sauces and jam or low fat yogurt.
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.
