It's the summer bank holiday. It's raining and the only good thing about today was I got to eat a posh breakfast at Aqua Shard with Miss Posh who says this place is her "local pub". Joker! ¬.¬" Well she's called Miss Posh for a reason on this blog!
A table was booked for 9.30 am. I was dead on time, but I don't think that was early enough for Miss Posh as we wouldn't be able to get a window seat she says... We got a window seat. :P
We caught up with gossip for a little bit, ordered our morning drinks and was deciding what to eat all at the same time.
We had placed our order for two Shard Full Breakfast's... and it took a long time to get to our tables... quite a long time. So we ate the danish pastries, kept on talking and watching London go all grey with the lovely rain spilling over the city. It reminded me of going up the Empire State Building in the rain. ^_^
The danishes tasted ok, a bit crusty so you may experience a lot of flakes coming off... Hmmmm.
Apparently they usually do re-fills for the orange juice but maybe because it was a bank holiday this didn't happen... Don't know...

Finally the breakfast arrived.

Miss Posh said we needed to move the items around to make the plate look a little colourful. Hahah.

As I started eating I felt full after a few bites. Blimey. What do they put in the food? How can this plate of food make me so full already! Miss Posh gave me her black pudding and I gave her a piece of bacon. Swap! Black pudding was nice, better than what I've had before, beans looked different, they weren't too sweet but tasted good. Sausage, mushrooms, bacon, half tomato and spinach all tasted good and was well seasoned. One of my poached eggs was slightly overcooked but I was ok with it.
Managed to eat all of it, but the bread was really dry so I left the crusty bits.
This is the bar part...
Total cost came to £65.25. Yeesh. Expensive for breakfast, but as Miss Posh and I see it, we're paying for the view...>_<""
My geeky rating: 4.5/5
- Nice view
- Breakfast is good
- Service is ok...
- Expensive (but worth it for the rainy view)
- Can be a long wait for the breakfast
