After four months in Asia, we headed to Honey and Co for our first London breakfast. Watch our video to find out why we love this Middle Eastern cafe in the heart of London.
We first heard about Honey and Co while we were eating breakfast at the Hungry Monk, a wonderful cafe in Cong, Ireland. Aisling Butler had staged at the Middle Eastern cafe years ago and waxed poetically on the desserts created by the Israeli owners, Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich. Butler’s recommendation motivated us to eat our first London breakfast at Honey and Co back in June. Creatures of habit, we chose to return last month (November) when we arrived in London for a more extended visit.
Honey and Co is a cute cafe in London’s Fitzrovia neighborhood, not far from the St. Pancras rail station. We lugged our luggage to the cafe for our meal, which made us memorable enough for the manager to remember us five months later. Or maybe that’s a sign of a cafe that focuses on the personal experience of its customers. We choose to believe the later.
At the end of the day, the food is what brought us back to Honey and Co. As much as we loved eating Pho and Bun Bo Hue for breakfast in Asia, we didn’t forget about the restaurant’s wonderful shakshuka, an egg dish with a flavorfully spiced tomato sauce that’s popular among Israelis. Although it’s origins are in North Africa, shakshuka is the dish we crave when we eat Israeli food. We ordered a shakshuka for our recent London breakfast, but it’s the other dishes that surprised us and left us wanting to plan a third London breakfast at Honey and Co the next time we’re in London.
