Dishoom serves delicious and hearty breakfasts and brunches, in a beautiful and unique atmosphere. Sit on the verandah to enjoy the natural light that pours through the side, or enjoy a more traditional meal inside the restaurant. It's great for a group, but also just as nice to go alone for a slow relaxing breakfast.
Dishoom in general is great for its delicious food and interesting menu, but the I particularly love the Shoreditch branch because of the fresh atmosphere. My favorite place to sit is on the outdoor verandah, which is filled with clusters of couches and lounge seats, as well as a handful of tables and chairs. The natural light shines through the open atmosphere, and it's a delightful place to sit and catch up with friends. Whenever we have friends visiting London, Dishoom is always the first restaurant I suggest.
We're lucky that we're talking about brunch here on The Worktop, because the wait for dinner at Dishoom can be numbing and shocking (usually I'm quoted a two-hour wait). But when I went on a weekday for a late breakfast, there was no wait and we snatched a sofa arrangement on the coveted verandah. Some of the other diners were engaged in business meetings, while others worked away on their laptops. If you try to go on the weekend though, I'd suggest going early or making a reservation. Dishoom accepts reservations for breakfast and brunch (whereas they only accept dinner reservations for parties of six or more).
Dishoom has an engaging menu that makes dining interesting. On the breakfast and brunch menu, you can get a selection of Naan rolls - fresh baked naan in a tandoori oven, filled with chili tomato jam, cream cheese, fresh herbs and your choice of bacon, sausage, and egg, or a combination of those. There are also hearty egg dishes, which Dishoom claims would satisfy any Parsi body builder. Or if you prefer something lighter, try the fruit and yogurt, the granola, or the toast and jam options.
Besides delicious foods, Dishoom also has an extensive drink menu. I absolutely love their hot House Chai (which you can also get in a chocolate version), but there's also a large choice of lassis, cocktails, tipples, and other alcoholic drinks.
If you're looking for a delicious and hearty breakfast or brunch, make your way over to Dishoom. It's perfect for a group, but it's also a relaxing spot to go alone on a weekday to get caught up with some reading or light work.
