Brunch is fast becoming my favourite meal, and I love that there are so many options and that breakfast no longer needs to be based around sweet and sickly foods that are based around pastry, or huge greasy fry ups – although obviously they have their place. I’m not one of the avocado brigade but there’s definitely something to be said for a fresh, vibrant start to the day, and The Barn, Holloway excels at it.
I used to live on Streatham Hill but haven’t been that way for a while, so we headed over on a Saturday morning to go to Nineteen for breakfast. I was craving one of their lovely fry-ups with thick, meaty sausages and bright orange runny eggs – the surprise on arriving was that it is currently a building site. I don’t know if it’s coming back or been bought by someone else, but will keep an eye out as it was great.
