SquareMeal Review of
Bluebird Café & Courtyard
A second home for local celebs and self-made women, who come here to discuss business and affairs of the heart over eggs Benedict and Caesar salad, the café attached to D&D London’s Bluebird
gastrodome has become something of an institution hereabouts. The bright, airy dining room combines primary colours with a mishmash of chairs and modish lights, plus oddball displays of ornamental
plates, while the menu offers solid all-round appeal. Apart from eggs every which way, breakfast promises sticky patisserie, things on toast and bowls of house granola, with savouries talking
centre stage from midday onwards: look for charcuterie plates, fish-finger rolls, char-grilled burgers and big helpings of shepherd’s pie or pasta, followed by rice pudding, knickerbocker glory and
ice creams for those with a sweet tooth. To sip, order a glass of bubbly, a bellini or a citron pressé.
