Perusing the menu at Mentmore & Morley, one thing is very clear: the team behind this Rosebery eatery know their cafe fare. The menu is an expert curation of top morning meals; think ricotta pancakes, dukkha eggs and bacon and egg rolls. It's also punctuated with some left-of-field additions like bolognese mince on toast served with a poached egg and parmesan. What's more, they've gone full-steam on the classic brunch offering with a lengthy list of drinks. There are the obvious teas, coffees and juices, plus a most welcome addition of cocktails, wines and beers if you're so inclined. With a neutral palette, the fit-out is sleek, accented by indoor greenery and bold copper hanging lights. All in all, the cafe offers a fresh take on familiar territory, which is likely to see you wanting to visit again and again.
