I don’t know about you but when I’ve been away from home, the one thing I run to upon returning is my fave foodie haunts. In London, for me, that’s Raoul’s in Little Venice (13 Clifton Road, London W9-1SZ). It has been a neighborhood favorite with locals, for 20 years, with good reason – breakfast, lunch, dinner or the all-day brunch (until 6pm) and you cannot go wrong.
I love starting the day with Raoul’s French Toast. Its crispy perfection works well with a side of their Greek yogurt loaded with honey and nuts. I totally indulge when I’m here because it’s the perfect way to start any day.
Raoul’s casual atmosphere works for friends who want to grab a cuppa or solo travelers looking to dine in a comfy space. The cafe also offers outdoor seating and you can walk off the calories along the nearby canal. It’s truly a foodie find, off the beaten path in London.
The brunch tab of French Toast, Greek Yogurt and a Latte with VAT & service charge totaled £15.95 (approx. $24.73). That might seem a bit high for breakfast but travel luxuries are worth every bite.
TRAVELER TIP: The 10% service charge is already included in the check when it is brought to your table; so, keep that in mind before leaving any additional gratuity.
