Leopold’s of London at The Beach offers a laid back dining style. We visited the restaurant on a Friday for our monthly breakfast date and fell in love with it. With black and modern interiors, we could easily laze around one weekend morning to its comfy seats. The big green wall on the stairs leading to the second floor created a beautiful contrast to the monochromatic walls. The floor length glass windows provided natural light. Ahhh what’s not to love with its interiors, so Pinterest-worthy!
Although it was full house then (Friday morning!), we were glad to be served efficiently by LoL’s friendly staff. They have an exciting menu breakfast but I decided to cure the craving for pancakes while the fiancé chose a healthier fix.
My Vanilla Bean Pancakes came in three layers of fluffy cakes topped with fig and blueberry on one side and vanilla mascarpone cream on the other, then sprinkled with powdered sugar and “decorated” with sliced strawberries. It looked very pretty and the taste was equally great, too. It may look a handful but it was pretty heavy.
The Healthy Breakfast, on the other hand, was made of tomato and olive bruschetta, with a layer of tomato and chickpea ragout and baby spinach salad on grilled sourdough and finished with a grilled halloumi cheese on top! I kept on stealing a spoonful from this plate to balance off the sweetness of my pancakes.
For drinks, as usual, he had Latte and I, the non-coffee drinker, Hot Chocolate. Mine was served in a handle-less cup with marshmallows placed on a long plate. I was puzzled on how to sip on it coz the cup was warm and I couldn’t even hold it for a sec. Oh well, I let it cool down a bit and good thing, it was chocolaty rich.
One of the staff invited us to peek on the second floor before leaving and boy, am I glad we obliged! They have this nook of all things coffee-related and this uber lovely wall filled with tea bottles! LoL’s balcony overlooks Jumeirah Beach – the views are fantastic!
We will definitely return to Leopold’s of London to try the rest of their menu!
P.S. You can use your Entertainer vouchers when dining in LoL. Win!
