I have had my beady blogger eye on this place for the past few months! I was first alerted to the place by my friend who noticed that they had the same wallpaper as me. I knew it would be a match made in heaven immediately!
Despite Instagram leading everyone to think I had brunch in Antarctica…
AKA 10mins outside Lanark!
Upon arrival I was impressed by the flawless building and grounds.
And indoors it just got better! It’s key such a darling place.
Such a gorgeous place! I’m totally in love with the lights. And the dangling avocados. And obviously their fantastic choice of wallpaper!
My friend ordered the granola – how gorgeous is that bowl?! The bowl was jam packed with beautiful fruit, nuts and granola. As someone who isn’t a fan of granola, even I am so temped to give it a try next time I go!
I was slightly troubled as the menu was very simple and I didn’t particularly fancy anything on it despite being hungry. Nothing jumped out at me…so I took a stab.
I ordered a BLT.
And anxiously awaited its arrival – my heart wasn’t totally in it.
I panic about stringy fattiness in meat, especially bacon. I usually have to pull the fat off and reassemble bacon based sandwiches/burgers/etc.
Not today. NOT TODAY.
I ate absolutely every single thing in that sandwich without any hassle because, quite frankly: it was absolute perfection.
I ordered avocado to shove in, but let me tell you it needed no amendments – the bread was gorgeously rich and seedy, the tomatoes were perfectly ripe and juicy – even the bloody lettuce was gorgeous.
The bacon was gorgeously water thin which gave the illusion of it being lean and it was SO crispy and smoky. The chilli jam was nice and spicy but also gorgeously sweet. Hands down the absolute best BLT I have ever eaten. Everyone needs to try it!
I could go on and on about this sandwich, but instead I will leave it there and let you go and eat one yourselves. Please tell me if a better one exists because I seriously doubt it!
