London is brimming with restaurants, cafes and amazing foodie haunts, so no wonder a girl can be overwhelmed when picking a place for a long leisurely lunch or in our case special birthday spot. After a bit of research mixed with MIC notes and some good ol’ insta stalking, I decided that the Bluebird cafe and restaurant would be a perfect place to dine amongst the hustle and bustle of our London girlie weekend.
Sat beautifully along Kings Road, the courtyard lit with fairy lights greets you whilst fur blankets and squidgy sofas await perfectly positioned under a heated canopy.
Stepping into the restaurant was like stepping into a little garden sanctuary, greenery swaddled the building whilst a beautiful open bar decorated the middle of the floor. Once shown to our booth, the lure of pancakes with pancetta and maple syrup led us to ordering the 3 course brunch and wow it was delicious!
Dishes of chilli and lime squid, crushed avocado on sourdough, sirloin steak, sea bass and the most tasty chicken dish with garlic and olive oil creamy mash graced our table. Obviously we couldn’t say no to dessert so between us we choose, french toast, quinoa granola and molten chocolate. The food was outstanding, full of flavour and just the right portion size. The service was attentive and slick, we spend the whole afternoon grazing and chatting and not once felt rushed.
The professional service mixed with the light and airy restaurant meant the atmosphere was perfect, not stuffy but smart enough, a perfect place for a special birthday, lunch, brunch or afternoon tea.
If you fancy more of a pit stop whilst running errands or whilst grabbing a quick espresso with friends the Bluebird cafe beside the courtyard provides a more casual vibe and definitely worth checking out.
The whole experience was amazing and so memorable, I cant wait to brunch here again and 100% recommend you stepping foot into Bluebird if you get the chance!
