Rest assured, there’s nothing dodgy about the eggs used for the pancakes at this manically popular all-day American diner set in the brutalist shadow of the Barbican. Made to the US remit and served all day, every day, these eggy goodies get slathered with maple syrup, splodged with blueberry jam and vanilla cream or loaded up diner-style with fried chicken and banana. Eat them for Friday ‘Frunch’ or for normal brunch at the weekends.
