Tom’s Kitchen Canary Wharf Weekend Brunch Menu
Weekend brunch is served from 10am until 4pm so that should give you plenty of time to roll out of bed and saunter down to Canary Wharf. I love this part of London when the workers have gone home because you get to enjoy the openness of the streets and the tall buildings without bumping into anyone! The brunch menu features a proper full English breakfast which includes everything from fried eggs, to bacon, sausage, black pudding and more. Homeboy was happy to see that there was a vegetarian version which he ordered. This comprised of crushed avocado, a choice of eggs, a tasty crispy feta cheese which was fantastic, grilled tomato, mushroom, toasted muffin and Heinz beans. The beans were in a little bowl of their own which I always prefer otherwise the plate gets too messy. Homeboy also ordered the Blue Cheese Mushrooms from the Brunch Builders. This is a great way to add a few favourites like sautéed potatoes with chorizo, smoked salmon or crispy black pudding to beef up your breakfast.
I decided to try the Eggs Florentine which I consider myself a bit of an expert on. I wasn’t disappointed, this was a good as it gets. I always ask for my eggs to be well cooked, which I know many people would consider a no, no but I can’t be doing with runny yolk. As requested my eggs were not runny so I got to enjoy this dish exactly as I like it. The muffin was fabulous and the hollandaise sauce exceptional. Other choices are Eggs Benedict, a decadent Truffle Eggs Benedict and classic Eggs Royale. They also served Baked Turkish Eggs with sumac and yoghurt on sourdough which sounded very tempting indeed. Or you can opt for something simple like Crushed Avocado on Toast which is cheered up with a sprinkling of chilli, mixed seeds and cashew nuts.
Sweet options are Seasonal Berry Pancakes with maple syrup. We decided to try the Brioche French Toast with caramelised apples and cinnamon cream. We loved this dish, it was a good size, not too much and left you wanting more. The cinnamon cream was amazing, I could eat it all day long!
Brioche French Toast
To give you the idea of price points the big breakfasts are £12-15, egg dishes £10-19, pancakes and French toast are £9-10. If you visit the restaurant earlier you can enjoy breakfast dishes which include bagels, fruit, granola and porridge. Lunch starts from 11.30 which features burgers, fish and chips and steak. If you book for 11.30 you can then choose from the brunch or the lunch menu which gives you a wide choice. Drinks include Bloody Mary, Champagne and a few juice concoctions such as Beetroot with Apple and Celery.
Tom’s Kitchen Canary Wharf Interiors
The restaurant space is well designed with a nod towards industrial interiors but with a classy spin. You’ll find parquet flooring, metro brick tiled structural columns and oversized pendant lights. The tables and chairs are well spaced so you have privacy from fellow diners. There is also a deli connected to the restaurant which is open during the week. Private dining is available if you’re thinking of hosting a function here. Apparently, there is also a play room for the kids so if you want to enjoy some grown up time with your partner, I’m sure the kids will be happy with that! There is seating outside so you can enjoy alfresco dining in the summer.
