and again we have weekend and a new place to visit. today – ‘Village East of Bermondsey’. restaurant is located quite near ‘London Bridge’ station on bermondsey street. to be fair, the whole street when you start walking through it, sends you this vibe of laid-back and chilled atmosphere, free from stress and all the troubles. time stops for a minute and just lets you enjoy the day.
decor of the place itself is quite unique. i would say it’s a combination of pub and wooden cottage decor. stools, bar, metal lamps, booth chairs and mix of long and small wooden tables.
food. cranberry granola? (3.50£) if you pour one table spoon of yoghurt to a small glass and fill it with granola till the very top, don’t expect it’s gonna be enough. and to be fair I’m not a huge fan of sawdust. toast with scramble eggs decent (5£) but eggs Benedict? incredibly good! also you have to try ‘in the pink’ (grapefruit juice with agave syrup) which is amazing and what is more important sooo refreshing! definitely coming back to try the burgers – they looked amazing and you can choose your own extras!
in general place is a good choice for a weekend brunch which is – (here’s important information for long sleepers) served till 4pm. also before leaving definitely check out toilet’s decor. and most important fact it is not expensive!
so yeah, the first date with ‘Village East’ was promising. we will see how it will go on the next one when i’m going to try burgers….
