I’ve had multiple love affairs at brunch before, but none as gorgeous as The Wolseley’s (yet!). Brunch at the opulent cafe-restaurant right in Piccadilly takes me back to gorgeous Viennese cafes like Cafe Central. The idea that I could have affogato and a croissant for breakfast is just fantastic.
Having visited the Wolseley a couple times, I’ve tried their assortment of viennoiseries and it is absolutely phenomenal. Chocolate lovers cannot miss the pain au chocolat or the double chocolate brioche. Every bite makes me feel hugely guilty, but if you love chocolate, it’s heavenly. Paired with the wide selection of coffee, The Wolseley easily offers a light breakfast.
Now if you’re looking for a more comprehensive brunch affair, be prepared to make some tough decisions. The Wolseley’s egg benedict is as perfect as it is classic. I’ve been multiple times and they really know how to poach their eggs to perfection. If you’re looking for a more hearty selection, I’d recommend their pancakes. While the pancakes come with blueberries, opt for the less healthy side of crispy bacon and you will find a prized dish. I mean, it’s fried, crispy bacon with fancy pancakes, what’s not to love? But surprisingly, my FAVORITE thing at the Wolseley is actually their caramelised to perfection pink grapefruit. It’s like a grapefruit brulee: sugary and citrusy goodness.
If you’re shopping in Picadilly and want to savor some delicious pastries or brunch, make your way to The Wolseley and soak in the checkered marble floors and gorgeous interior.
