I got to the gym a lot earlier than I anticipated and was surprisingly famished, so I decided to get a quick breakfast at Canteen next door. I’ve been to Canteen a few times, but always for dinner. I always see people enjoying nice breakfasts reading the paper on Sunday mornings, why not give it a whirl?
I was going to spinning class where I’d be sweating off half my body weight, so I didn’t want anything too big or heavy. I opted for the £4 poached egg on toast.
The calorie-conscious American in me nearly had a heart attack when I saw how much butter they put on the toast. It was seriously soggy, though I know part of that may have been the egg. Another thing: one egg was cooked more than the other. I don’t like my egg too runny, so obviously I liked one, but not so much the second.
The bread they used was lovely, but I kept dreaming about the raisin toast at One O One.
All in all, it was good, but I won’t be going out of my way to have breakfast there before the gym again.
