No.32 Clapham Old Town Review | Sunday Breakfast / Brunch

Tuesday, 9 June 2015

This Sunday was a groggy post-alcohol-filled-night type of morning. Usually Steven loves to cook up a delicioso breakfast, but it was a day for being lazy and resting so we decided to wander down the road to No 32. Clapham Old Town. (I'd heard good things.) It doesn't have a great review on Trip Advisor, and I've noted that most of the reasons for that is rude hosts. I will be honest here - our service wasn't the best. It was by no means rude or the worst, but considering the place was nearly empty and there were loads of staff nobody seemed to know what they were doing. They were running around like headless chickens most of the time and seemed to have to check if there were tables available even though the place was almost empty. This might be a protocol or they might have to keep some aside for something but it was still a bit weird and oddly handled. That said - the food was delicious. 

I opted for a bruschetta with avocado, roasted tomatoes, special house light mayo (home made), spinach & streaky bacon. I got an apple juice too which came freshly squeezed and was just so tasty and refreshing.

 My boyfriend opted for the classic Eggs Bennedict, which he absolutely polished away so I will assume it was great.

I would definitely go again - although I'd consider this a bit of a luxury or one-off on another lazy and hungover Sunday morning rather than a pre-planned destination. Considering how many cute cafes and places to eat there are around Clapham Old Town I doubt No32 is the best and you can probably get more for your moneys worth elsewhere.
