We have just returned from one of the best brunches we’ve recently had. Coco Momo in Kensington is an American restaurant. (It is no relation of Coco di Mama, an Italian themed chain, but has a sibling in Marylebone and is owned by Food & Fuel who also own ten other places in town.) We were seated at the outdoor seating area on the sidewalk, which was great for people-watching and, thanks to the limited car traffic, not too noisy.
After some deliberation, we opted for the matcha chia seed breakfast bowl (£5), the smoked salmon and avocado on sourdough toast, alfalfa, tomato, chilli, poached egg (£9.75), and the two free-range baked eggs, tomato, kale, sweet potato & halloumi (£9.25), one flat white (£2.75), one Americano (had to be done, right?) with milk (£2.55), one fruit & veg juice (ginger, beetroot, apple, £3.85) and one non-alcoholic Passionfruit Mojito £3.85.
Service seemed a little bit confused, but friendly. After about 15 minutes our meals arrived, and we were impressed with the great looks and flavours. I loved the kale, which is unusual for me to say, but it was so tasty and crunchy, well done there.
The posh bircher was rather pleasant too, according to Ms B. Perhaps the meals could have been slightly larger. 4 out of 5. We’ll be back.
