Hubby and I absolutely love their food, could be fed on it all the time. And their cakes! Never sat at the restaurant but we come to take stuff home at least once a week.

Ottolenghi has been my favourite brunch spot for a while now (and there are several places to go for brunch in the area!) My partner and I are vegetarian and the scrambled tofu is just delightful. There are a few separate tables, but be prepared...More
