A few weeks ago I went to The Delaunay for brunch with some of my favourite bloggers, to celebrate Aftab and Ellie's birthdays. I really love catching up with blogger friends, and we all had some really delicious brunch dishes, including my stack of pancakes! Just like their sister Corbin & King restaurant, The Wolseley, The Delaunay is a classic European style restaurant full of dark woods, brass, and green leather banquettes.
I used to go to The Delaunay's takeaway shop quite often when I was at my old job - I walked past it every single day on my way to work and they do the most incredible buttery croissants. So I was really excited to finally try the actual restaurant. I started with a peppermint tea, and knew straight away that I wanted the cranberry and pear compote stacks. They didn't disappoint, and were really delicious.
Whilst I tucked into my stacks, Aftab had a caramelized pink grapefruit and eggs florentine. Thankfully the staff had tucked us all away in a corner so we could take photos without disturbing other customers too much, and I was given the job of holding the caramelized grapefruit up so everyone around the table could get a photo. I swear we're normal...

Other dishes around the table included steak tartare, eggs benny, and salmon tartare. Everyone seemed to really love their chosen meals!
To finish we had an amazing Nutella and Ferrero Rocher birthday cake made by Sheepa!
We had the loveliest morning chatting over tea and brunch, and The Delaunay was the perfect setting for a special birthday brunch!
