I recently went to a Secret Sleepover with the team at Bloggers Hangout. We stayed in a London Apartment and had a great night, be sure to catch up with the post here!
The following day, we were treated to brunch. It was a total surprise for me on the day and as I was told Counter* was a fantastic restaurant, I packed my camera and wanted to share our brunch with you!
Located in Vauxhaull Arches, right next to the station, Counter has a really cool vibe. It's not too posh for brunch but I could definitely envision myself returning for a nice evening meal too. The decor is beautiful, with a choice of glass tables or more of a 'booth' style private seating arrangement. It stretches really far back and is much bigger than it looks on the outside. The whole restaurant was extremely clean, even the toilets are modern with dyson dryers. The bar is centrally located, with plenty of staff to help.
I have a real sweet tooth and and normally love pancakes for brunch. I was also treating myself after winning at the Cosmo Blog Awards two days earlier, so I opted for the Cinnamon & Apple French Toast. I can honestly say it was the best I've ever had. The portion size was huge too! My friend Khrissie chose Eggs Benedict with crispy bacon, poached eggs and hollandaise on a muffin. It looks amazing. Meanwhile, Rach selected baked eggs, truffle mushrooms, tomato and spinach with walnut pesto. I love how the menu has healthy, savoury and sweet options for everyone, I'd love to take my mum one day.
We all enjoyed a pot of tea and fresh juices. Once we finished, the Manager showed us 'Make Your Own Bellini' too, a gorgeous peach syrup and Prosecco treat. Each of our meals was priced at £8 and with drinks etc, you're looking at about £12 per person which in my opinion, was really great value for money for the quality, service and experience we had.
Massive thanks to Counter for having me, you did not fail to disappoint! It was truly wonderful and I will definitely be stopping by again soon!
*Counter & Danielle at Bloggers Hangout kindly invited myself and two bloggers for a complimentary brunch in return for an honest review.
