First hint of summer and we're all looking to get outside. And obviously it'd be nice to combine that with a big, old fry-up too. So can I recommend the Embankment cafe for all your outdoorsy, ebcb needs? It's not cheap, it's too good a location to be cheap, but it's worth it to get some bucolic accompaniment to yout full english.
I wasn't allowed to order an ebcb (ah, rules) but the Full English is just ebcb plus sausage and toast so I compromised. And it was worth it. That egg seems to benefit from the fresh air, its laying back, spreading out, catching some rays. The beans are clearly more indoory types, they're cowering behind the chips, slapping on some beanjuice as a kind of suncream. The chips are pale and crisp, which doesn't really fit with the suntan analogy so forget it.
It's not the usual outdoor place - a couple of tables squeezed onto a bit of pavement next to a traffic jam - it's in a litle mini park, with only a major road and a huge hedge/fence separating you from the river.
All condiments present and correct.
The sweetest little shed, like the one Grandfather Potts gets captured in by Baron Bombast.
A splendid place to pass the time.
There's a platial map here.
