I organised a work related Tweet-up at the Big Chill House back in the summer and really enjoyed the place. It has four or five distinct areas, including a lovely outside terrace, a decent drinks selection and it is well located near King's Cross.
So I was pleased to be invited back to try their new breakfast and weekend brunch menu and contrived to meet up for an early 'work' meeting to try it out.
I went for the full English minus the baked beans and it was a pretty good fry up. A good quality, herby Lincolnshire sausage, super crisp bacon, well cooked mushrooms and fresh, if slightly underseasoned, scrambled eggs on muffins. Not a bad effort at all. The only change i'd make is to replace the muffins for some white toast and include some black pudding and I'd have been a very happy boy!
Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs
My colleague went for scrambled eggs with smoked salmon on muffins and was also pleased with the result. Simple and tasty. There's not much more to say.
All in all, breakfast at the Big Chill makes for a good start to the day. Service was quick, efficient and friendly and included a discussion about my decision to leave off the baked beans - the staff thought this was the best bit, but hey, it was my way!
It is a decent, reasonably priced option close to Kings Cross and St Pancras and is ideal if you're looking for a quick bite to eat before a trip north or looking for a relaxed venue for an early morning meeting.
I was invited to the Big Chill House breakfast.
