Breakfast with a view at the Gherkin

Duck & Waffle, London © Ludovic Bischoff

For breakfast, start at the Duck & Waffle. Having opened in 2012, on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower, this spot offers a breathtaking view of the City of London. Not only is this the highest restaurant in the United Kingdom, but it is also the first one to be open seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day. This is what appeals to the city slickers, who come here to eat and drink sophisticated cocktails around the central bar where clients and bartenders mingle. This works as well for both lunch as the middle of the night, with “city boys” working to the pace of the financial hubs around the world…But here they gather to divulge in a traditional full English, the best way to watch the city begin to stir. The menu changes every month and consists only of products (sausages, bacon, blak pudding eggs, etc) from the top farmers and breeders in Britain. Drinking coffee at the top of the iconic ‘Gherkin’, with the incredible structure designed by Norman Foster just opposite; it is without a doubt the best way to start a long day of food shopping…
