Brunch Kettner’s Townhouse in Soho

Brunch Kettner’s Townhouse in Soho

If I’ve learnt anything over the years (besides when to use learned and learnt) is that life is too short to wait for a special occasion to catch up with good friends.

Some might almost accuse us of an almost cultish obsession with the luxury, inbetween meal worshipped mainly on the weekends. I get teased at work for a seemingly never-ending string of weekend blates, almost somehow managed to triple book myself in recently and simply revel in the meal where eggs, cocktails, burgers, dessert and well poured Flat Whites share… View Post
