I am not usually partial to a chain, mainly because I take people's judgement too seriously and people judge you for going to chains. However, I was hungover and needed somewhere brunchy, relatively cheap and close to Waterloo. Wahaka was in denial about their breakfast menu, so we sauntered over to Le Pain. We bagged a table in two seconds, because the place is a bit of a tardis. The menu was huge and pretty tricky to choose from (tartine means open sandwich, just for the heads up), but after much deliberation I went for a hot roasted vegetable and goats cheese delight (with beetroot hummus), and unanticipated tonnes of salad on the side, and my buddy went for the salmon tartine. The snaps don't do the generous portions sizes justice to be honest. Anyway, we went on a busy Sunday and no one chucked us out after we inhaled our tartines, so massive thumbs up from hungover me. I didn't even pick up any snacks for my ridiculous train journey that followed, and that is a first from me.
