Have a sneak on their insta here
We were kindly invited to try the new menu at the National Gallery but rather than one of the ladies at our HQ take up the offer we thought we would gift it to one of our fab mothers!! We could not think of anyone better to gift this great brunch to than Emily and James who has been going through an emotional roller coaster over the past 12 months, since their baby girl Willow aka Willow the WARRIOR was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease - Willow is about to approach her 1st birthday and they are overwhelmed that she has come along this far - she really is a blessing!! And the strongest lil lady in the world. So amongst the chaos of hospital appointments and health visitors, they got their glad rags on headed out to London's West End for a lovely brunch - both Emily and James are very creative (James designs restaurants for a living, so his review was going to be very critical - thankfully he loved every bit of the new menu and Cafe). Considering the location of the restaurant is within the heart of the city, the atmosphere was very chilled and super relaxing at the same time as stylish and very special. Their first born 5 year old Nancy Rose loved every minute too! With sooo many choices on the menu for the lil ones, there were thankfully no meltdowns!! So all around a lovely day out to a family that massively appreciated and needed it!!!
Designed by restaurateur Oliver Peyton, offers a modern, healthy take on all the brunch classics including shakshouka – baked eggs in tomato sauce with chorizo; duck hash with Clarence Court duck eggs, and chilli and acai bowl with bananas, peanut butter, homemade granola and fresh fruit. Fitting for spring, vibrant and light dishes include a miso salmon poke bowl with brown rice, pickled carrot, kimchi and seaweed; and the veggie-friendly spiced beetroot hummus served with labneh and seasonal vegetable crudités.
A dedicated kids’ menu is also available, including an array of breakfast dishes from pancakes to porridge through to toasted tea cakes and scrambled eggs.
With a brand new brunch offering and access to The National Gallery, The National Café is perfect for a full day out with friends and family.
