Just wanted to update my earlier review of lunch in September, went there for breakfast this week. A very simple order of coffee and poached egg on hash took 45 minutes to be delivered when the place was 75% empty. Awkward though friendly waitress with no excuse except the kitchen was “slow today as we are short-staffed”. Oh dear, mediocre in September, poor in November. And I used to be a fan.
Apart from the zany pieces of furniture dotted about, I can't see that Mr Loubet has had much effect on the place since the re-badging. I was always happy to go to the old Zetter and I'm now happy to go to the “new one” too. The food is much the same, modern, honest, tasty with ok portions. Good people serving, friendly not servile. Bright room, filtered well-water… Decent enough place to go to for lunch – but nothing to set the pulse racing, which is what a new 'patron" should bring and in my view is what is needed to elevate this review to a 9.
I have read Richard's review but can't really match his level of enthusiasm for my experience, though I would have liked to.. We did not kmow BL – so did not get the friends' frills, “only” what Joe Public gets.
