{LONDON RESTAURANTS} MONOCLE CAFE

Instagram is a great source of inspiration for MANY things : fashion, travel, art, restaurants… so when I see that someone posts a great picture of a restaurant in a city that I will be visiting soon or in Paris, I take note. This is how I found Monocle Café in Marylebone.

I went for breakfast on a Sunday. I didn’t exactly know the neighborhood, so it was a good way to see another part of London. Since it was early in the morning, Marylebone was quite calm even if it is not too far from the most touristy part of the city. Monocle Café offers mostly japanese inspired food AND an scandinavian breakfast. This sounds odd because japanese and scandinavian and british do not usually mix. However, it works perfectly at Monocle ! If the weather is nice, you can sit outside. If not, there are some small tables next to the counter or you can go downstairs, which is a little bit cozier in my opinion.

We ordered the scandinavian breakfast, a flat white, and a cup of orange juice. The presentation is lovely !

The coffee was good, although I prefer the one from Caravan. I talk about this café in another article. The quality of the breakfast is good, and it has a great price for both London and Marylebone (I found later that it is a very nice neighborhood!). Another thing that I loved about Monocle is the music! They have their own radio station, and the music is really really good (I shazamed four songs!).

If you are looking for a quiet and different café in London, not in the middle of the most “active” part of the city, this is the place to go! Hyde Park as well as Oxford street are not far  – 10-minute walk away.

Address: 18 Chiltern St, London W1U 7QA
