Colbert, 50-52 Sloane Square, Chelsea, London SW1W 8AX
I was dying to try out the recently opened Colbert, since it took the long empty spot where Oriel’s finally withered away.
It has all the charm of a typical Parisienne cafe; the hustle and bustle of people constantly flowing through its doors and waiters in
with attentive expressions.
At 10.30am on a Sunday (and this is early for me!) the place was packed, should I return I would consider booking. They granted me a table with little fuss and I was pleased my plans were not ruined!
There is loads of choice on the breakfast menu, porridge, granola, fruit, pastries, scrambled eggs with Comte and chives (tempting), croques (available from midday hmmm…next time), I go for eggs florentine in the end. They were delicious and served with fresh spinach, I was only a little disappointed that it took so long to arrive. I then had to ask three times for a croissant! That was also a delicious pastry, fine, crusty and buttery as levitra online it should be. But really, breakfast should not take clomid and egg quality 2 hours!
Despite the fact that they were busy and rushed off their feet, nothing was too much trouble. But I think they need to get it together if they want to keep the place full but turn around tables and keep the joint profitable.
The place is open all day and serves food till late – it’s a smarter a version of Cafe Rouge. So if you don’t mind paying the price and whiling a few hours away then this place is worth stoping into if you’re in the area.
