I have to say, it is by God's grace that I was in the area and able to try the food here and I don't say this lightly but the two dishes I was gifted were both 10/10. Amazing. Faultless. I decided to try The Works and Ackee and Saltish as both are two of the most popular dishes on the menu. One of the first things that I noticed was the amazing presentation of the food (as you can see in the images above). All the compartments of the meal were laid out perfectly. 


The Works includes either mini pancakes or french toast topped with fresh fruit (I chose pancakes), maple syrup, seasoned house baked beans, hash browns, scrambled egg, Turkey bacon and sausage. There is a pork option available for the latter two. I really appreciated the option to order turkey instead of pork as this is quite rare with most breakfast spots. I almost always have to go for a fish or vegetarian option instead. The American-style pancakes were so fluffy and light, as were the scrambled eggs. Ackee & Saltfish includes fried plantain, fried dumplings, seasoned house baked beans and scrambled eggs. The ackee & saltfish was cooked to perfection. Not too salty or oily, both of which are common mistakes with this dish. The dumplings and plantain were also fried excellently. Slightly crispy on the outside but soft in the middle.

I can honestly say that everything about the food I tasted was spectacular. The food was served hot, the portion size was generous and my interaction with Break The Fast London was very pleasant. If you're after a fresh, hearty and healthy breakfast or brunch meal, this is definitely a place that should be on your bucket list. I must warn you though - the food sells out very fast so if you do decide to order be quick.

I've also been informed by Break The Fast London that they will be announcing a weekly pop up very soon so keep an eye out for this. I've placed their Instagram and website links at the top of this review.
