I’m lucky to enough to have made really special friends through blogging. Ones that stay up to the late hours of the evening helping and comforting you through hard times, but also celebrating over a champagne dinner. I often say, friends that drink and cry together, stay together.
To celebrate a special friends birthday, myself and Angie met up with Binny at Rosewood London for breakfast. The Rosewood had been on my list of hotels to visit for the longest time, so it was the perfect celebratory occasion.
The Rosewood has Holborn Dining Room and also the Mirror Room, but we visited the Mirror Room for a nice, relaxed catch up over strong coffees and delicious food.
The interiors are so pretty and welcoming. I could have literally spent all day there, especially as the sofas we were sat on were so cosy!
It wasn’t on the interiors that were pretty, the table setting was so elegantly laid with the pristine silver cutlery, condiments and fresh carnations. Such a lovely touch.
With the table fit for royalty, we ordered our coffees and set off into a deep catch-up mode. Angie had recently got back from her travels to East Africa. Binny and I were keen to hear about the all the places we had previously visited. It’s so lovely to hear great things about where you spent a lot of your childhood. East Africa is certainly underrated and I feel more people need to be educated into the wonders that lie out there.
I ordered the Açai bowl, which is not normally served on most breakfast menus. Mainly because it is so hard to source and import to England therefore making it an extremely expensive berry. However, I wouldn’t expect any less from a luxury hotel like the Rosewood. My açai bowl was topped with blueberries, bananas, strawberries, raspberries, granola, goji berries and bee pollen. Yummy!
Binny’s breakfast was fit for the birthday queen. She ordered baked eggs with truffle oil. As soon as it was brought out, it had the delicious aroma of truffle that lingered throughout our breakfast. Definitely a smell you can never get tired of! I definitely need to try the baked eggs when I go back to The Rosewood and not on a diet.
Angie went for a lovely, creamy porridge. It’s her go to breakfast, no wonder she always looks so good in her dresses. I need to take a leaf out of Angie’s book.
I think we must have spent a good few hours just chatting and enjoying ourselves. The Mirror Room has such a relaxing, modern atmosphere with great attentive service. We weren’t rushed or hurried, even though we were the only ones sitting there when it got to around 12pm. I love the fact that the Rosewood has such a extensive breakfast menu and they serve it until 11am. So, if you need a weekday breakfast/brunch spot, Mirror Room at the Rosewood is where it is at.
Angie had to run off to a lunch meeting, but Binny and myself carried on celebrating her birthday with a liquid lunch at the Scarfes Bar in the Rosewood, before heading to The Fumoir Bar in Claridge’s for more cocktails.
