Cosy Lunch At Storyline Duke Street London W1

I had spotted Storyline Café while exploring Marylebone, so I added it to my list of places to visit. My partner came with me, and we enjoyed a cosy lunch on a Thursday. We sat at the counter and relaxed while listening to music and loading pictures on Instagram. This coffee shop and café is contemporary with a great collection of coffees, tempting cakes and lovely lunch options ranging from soup to avocado on toast and savoury bites. If you’re looking for the best coffee shops near Bond Street Station, places for lunch on Duke Street or cafes in W1, you’ll love Storyline.

“Adorable contemporary café with tempting cakes, satisfying egg dishes and savoury bites, Storyline is cosy with super stylish interiors,” Homegirl London.

Storyline Café Menu

Indulge in their egg dishes, such as our avocado on toast featuring smashed avocado and chilli oil, served with poached or scrambled eggs. I ordered this and loved every mouthful; the presentation was pretty, making it extra enticing. It is a small portion, and I would have preferred to eat more, but it was quality over quantity.

They had a caprese version of the avocado on toast with mozzarella, or you may choose the shakshuka, a baked egg dish in a tomato sauce infused with za’atar and chilli oil. They cost £14.90-£16.65.

For a lighter bite, try the chapati wraps filled with an omelette of mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach and a blend of soft and mild cheeses, which my partner ordered. It was delicious, but again, on the small side. You can relish similar fillings encased in a brioche roll. Alternatively, delight in a croissant filled with scrambled eggs or mozzarella with tomato. These cost £4.50-9.

Check out the savoury items, including cheese straws, jalapeño cornbread muffins, sourdough sticks with olive cheddar and thyme, cheese and leek swirls and mini pizzas topped with tomato, onion and olives. They all looked amazing, so I’d go back to try them another time. They cost £2.70-8.50.

Indulge your sweet tooth with exquisite cakes, including carrot with cinnamon and lemon drizzle with poppy seeds, which we shared. Also, sample their buns, like the cinnamon and blueberry with cardamom and almonds. These cost £5.10-6.95.

For a decadent treat, try their freshly made lokma creations which are Turkish fried dough usually soaked in sugar syrup, honey, and cinnamon. Storyline allows you to have yours adorned with honey or chocolate toppings, garnished with crushed pistachios, sesame seeds, or walnuts. I also spotted a note on the counter saying they had pancakes with Nutella and strawberries, giving me more reasons to return.

storyline duke street latte

Pair your meal with meticulously crafted coffees, ranging from £4.30 to £4.60, or explore the V60 options priced at £10 or the speciality Spanish classic latte priced at £8.80. Additionally, they offer herbal infusions, cardamom chai, matcha tea and refreshing iced tea. I highly recommend trying the truly divine white peach nectar juice bottle.
