If you are going to do breakfast there is only one dish that you have to get perfect. Forget museli. Forget Granola. Forget poached pear and honey with Greek yoghurt. Please, please, please forget the oxymoronic abomination that is an eggwhite omlette. No, if you want to do breakfast well, you have to get the bacon roll right.
Not a bacon sandwich, which is perfectly ok if nothing else is available, but isn't the real thing. No. You need a roll. Toasted. Crunchy on the outside, yielding within; a counterpoint to the softness of the bacon. You need good quality bacon. I prefer streaky, here it was back. Cooked perfectly; a little charing on the fat, not too crispy. Again, by preference I'd go for smoked, here not, but none the worse for it.
So the service sucks: it really cannot take three goes to get a latte, and I am still waiting for the bread basket ordered, but the bacon roll is the reason to go here. It is a joy to behold. Not perfect (see above), but one of the finest that you will find in London, hence the world.
