Julia's Meadow, Fitzrovia, W1

So hello again. As I've mentioned before, I don't do these too often, and once again, I've just gone for the standard set breakfast off a cafe's menu, so it's not veggie by any stretch. This was actually eaten at lunchtime, but I was a bit hungover and really felt like the FE experience, so here we go. One of the few eating places in Fitzrovia I haven't yet been to for breakfast.

So what we have here is your standard Full English, albeit with a (single) hash brown. Of course, I could use more carb than that (especially what with being hungover) but I can't complain about the amount of bacon -- lots of it and perfectly decent. The beans I had been worried about because of the slightly dark colour (maybe doesn't come out great in this slightly weird-coloured photo; I blame artificial lights), but they were fine. As were the mushrooms, provided as a bit of an afterthought at the edge of the plate. The toast was good, soft white with butter and good for mopping up.

All in all, this was a decent breakfast, and I can recommend this easy-to-miss cafe (which is to say, I never paid it much attention in the 10 years I've worked in the area), which is just off Goodge/Mortimer St, near the top.
