How would you celebrate your friend smashing her marathon PB and running a sub 3.45? We treated ourselves to the High Breakfast at the Soho Hotel. This included tea, juice, toast and a very impressive spread;
Spinach and Goat’s Cheese Croissant
Mini Eggs Benedict and Eggs Royale
Streaky Bacon Finger Sandwiches
Brown Toast Fingers with Smoked Salmon
Pain au Chocolat with Banana and Maple Syrup
Mini Seasonal Fruit Bowl
Mini Crunch Bar
You probably don’t need proof that we demolished everything… but we did.
Some of the best bites were the mini eggs benedict and Royale using poached quail eggs and a rich, smooth hollandaise sauce that tasted of pure luxury. I also loved the banana with maple syrup sat atop a pain au chocolat (again, would have been better warm) and the thick and creamy yogurt with compote and granola. I wonder if the full breakfast spread at the Soho Hotel is similar, if so, sign me up for the full works.
For £20, the spread is pretty good value, although we all mentioned that we would have loved if some of the morsels were a little warmer. I think the High Breakfast is available all day and would make a brilliant brunch option for those after something a little different.
The lovely staff brought out a plate of chocolate crispies, macarons and berries to congratulate Steph on her amazing marathon achievement. I think they thought we were all crazy on finding out that we’ve all run marathons. I love that it is so normal to our group of running friends, but it’s soo huge to most other people. As well as celebrating steph’s awesome time, the girls gave me the cutest good luck card for the Berlin marathon on Sunday. It brought me to tears- I am so lucky to have such a brilliant group of running friends that understand the ups and downs, the good and bad and the madness that is the marathon. What a lovely non-lycra afternoon with Steph, Charlie and Lissy.
