Weighhouse Street Deli With Hugo

On our final day in London, I had a very important breakfast date with Jess to catch up and meet her gorgeous son Hugo

But first, let’s talk about the venue! We decided to visit Weighhouse Street Deli, the brain child of uber blogger Deliciously Ella, which Jess had been to before, but I hadn’t yet had the pleasure

Stunning marble tops are complimented by cool teal tiles

With an array of healthy food choices listed on wall mounted boards, making up a small but well curated menu, along with an extensive juice selection ready to grab-and-go from their fridge

Seating is sparse, with high stools running along a window view shared table as well as a long sharing table with low wooden benches next to it

Decor throughout has been meticulously planned to convey a sense of Instagram Heaven-meets-bringing people together,

but for me, it just misses the mark and this I think is down to the colour palate being so cool, almost standoff-ish, also the ferns against the white washed wall for example – it may be very “in” – but it’s just not a warm space to be in and whilst we were there, no one stayed longer than 20mins

I also think the staff have a role to play here too. When I asked about the granolas on offer, the person dealing with me explained what the differences were, but was clearly embarrassed to the nth degree by how cringe their – no doubt – scripted dialogue was and at the end, even half apologised for how silly it all was…

In any case, I opted for the nutty granola with almond mylk (no that is not a typo, it’s on their menu). It was served in a pretty speckled bowl and I’m a divvle for glass milk bottles so I was delirious with that!

Their coffee is some of the best, proper rocket fuel, which is exactly what I was in need of to get me through the busy day that lay ahead!

I know you may shake your head, or give me some rolly eyes like Himself did, but I must admit – it was a stellar bowl of granola – totally yum and I’d definitely buy some off of them to have at home (…do they do this!?!)

Let’s have a look at the single serving milk bottle in action shall we?

woooo!!!

Jess opted for their Sweetcorn Fritters with spiced baked beans, avocado and sundried tomato mash, which, I have on very good authority (from Jess!) tasted amazing

We chatted away and time flew by far too fast, before I knew it Jess’s lovely Mom had arrived and I had to scoot off to meet Himself. Later that day, this gem of a photo arrived via text – I think it’s pretty clear I was smitten – how gorgeous is little Hugo?!?! There are far more adorable photos of this little man on Jess’s blog, so do hop over and say hi

A final note on Weighhouse Street Deli: I would go back if I was in the area because the coffee is great and the food is lovely, but I wouldn’t be going out of my way to do so because – well – to be honst I just like a bit more privacy when catching up with friends! Half our conversation was being avidly taken in by our fellow table sharers and it’s not because we were loud, it’s just because we were all at the one table and no one else was chatting. So, a fun place to experience but I think this kind of spot is more my speed!
