Breakfast at The Elgin

I was delighted to find this cool spot as my first brunching experience in Maide Vale, Paddington. Situated on the corner of Elgin Avenue and Lanark Road is The Elgin, an old pub turned restaurant that is bursting with antiquated charisma. 

I ordered their bramley apple and ginger porridge with hazelnut crumb - it was devine. My partner had the potato latkes, smoked salmon, scrambled eggs and cream cheese, which I can second were amazing. We devoured in our meals whilst listening to the sound of the hissing coffee machine (the coffee here is on point) and young families enjoying board games over pots of tea. This place is a little gem.
