Review: Breakfast at the Duck and Waffle | LONDON

On Maundy Thursday (the day before Good Friday) I got up at the crazy hour of 5.30am. Why? I was going to the Duck and Waffle to meet some friends for breakfast. The upcoming Bank Holidays made the early start much more bearable but I have to admit that I was pretty groggy until I got some coffee inside me.

The early start, additional fact that I was heading to my parents for the Easter break that evening and the DLR strike all combined meant that getting to the Duck and Waffle for our 7.15am table reservation was a bit tricky. I decided to get an Uber because I didn’t fancy lugging my suitcase across half of London in the rain to get to the underground and this turned out to be a wise decision. I dropped my suitcase off at my office which is nearby because I’d heard that you can’t take suitcases and large bags up to the restaurant.

I arrived at 110 Bishopsgate at 7.10am but I have to admit I wasn’t entirely sure where to go. There’s a huge neon sign for Sushi Samba so I headed there and it turns out it’s the same entrance for Duck and Waffle. After a quick security scan I was in the lift and wizzing up to the 40th floor for breakfast at the highest restaurant in London. The views in the lift are amazing, but maybe not ideal for someone whose not keen on heights!

I was the first to arrive out of my friends and ordered a latte while I waited and enjoyed the views. When my friends arrived we debated about whether to get eggs benedict or the signature “duck and waffle” breakfast but eventually we all decided to get the full english breakfast. It came with bacon, eggs (cooked to your preference), sausages, a large mushroom, hash brown and a cheddar cheese scone. The coffee was delicious (and necessary), the food was very good, although it felt a bit heavy for that time of the morning.

I’d say that the Duck and Waffle is mid priced – a full english breakfast is £16 which is normal for a main course in central London so for the same price you get the added bonus of incredible views. I loved the relaxed feel at the top of the Duck and Waffle and I was blown away by the views – you can see for miles! We were really lucky with the weather because it was a really clear day but for the rest of the week it’s been very rainy miserable weather. We had a table in the middle of the room and if you’re hoping for a table by the window, I suggest just booking a table for two as they were all around the windows.

The Duck and Waffle has been on my to-do list ever since I moved to London and we booked the table two months in advance so you need to book early to secure a table at Londons highest restaurant. After our delicious breakfast, it was back to the office for me before the Easter break.

Would I go back to the Duck and Waffle? Absolutely! I’m already planning my next visit. Feeling Inspired? Check out my London restaurant hit list!
