Burnt Toast Cafe Review

Pancakes with berries (£10)

I'd initially gone to Burnt Toast Cafe to try their French toast but the waiter recommended the pancakes, which they're famous for, and how could I resist pancakes? I'm so glad I ordered the pancakes instead because they were incredibly delicious! For a long time, Sunday Cafe's pancakes were the best I've eaten in London and I'm happy to report that Burnt Toast Cafe's ones were equally yummy. They were buttery and crispy on the outside but light and fluffy on the inside. They were very thick and the portion was huge, so come hungry. Texture-wise, they were quite cake-like, which I was totally fine with. My favourite part of the pancakes was the mojito-soaked berries, which were tart and the alcohol gave them a slight bittersweet taste. The pancakes were topped off with a generous drizzle of butterscotch and maple syrup. Pure bliss.

Shakshuka (£11)

The shakshuka was more peppery and spicy than the ones I've had at other places. It was decently rich and flavourful. The feta cheese added creaminess and saltiness to the dish. Like the pancakes, the portion was massive and it came with half of a big avocado. Overall, it was a decent shakshuka but not the best I've tried in London.

Although Burnt Toast Cafe is located quite far from me, I'd happily go there again because the food is hearty and good. I'm definitely trying the French toast on my next visit!
