Oxford Street is synonymous with shopping so one would not think this is somewhere you would pop to for breakfast but that is what we did on one Saturday morning. Ok, technically we were in Harley Street for a health check-up but as we hadn’t eaten before the appointment it wast time for a good ‘ol serious weekend breakfast.
Having worked in several department stores on Oxford Street while I was at college and through university, I knew exactly where to head to for a guaranteed good time. We made a beeline for John Lewis of course. This was no time for window shopping. Straight onto the fourth floor where Huffkins Cafe is located.
Huffkins Cafe In John Lewis
Huffkins Cafe is a popular cafe in the John Lewis department store in London. This charming and stylish cafe is known for its delicious food, beautiful decor, and friendly atmosphere.
Upon entering Huffkins Cafe, you’ll be struck by the chic and stylish decor. The space is light and airy, with high ceilings and large windows that offer plenty of natural light.
The cafe is decorated with elegant furnishings and accents, giving it a sophisticated and upscale feel. Not your typical Instagrammable cafe that is just all floral and no good food.
The menu at Huffkins Cafe is diverse and delicious, with something to suit every taste and preference. You can find everything from a hearty breakfast of eggs, bacon, and avocado on toast, to lighter options fresh smoothies or a bowls of oatmeal. They also have items like sandwiches, and salads, but my mind was set on one thing alone. English Breakfast!
Food At Huffkins Cafe
Want a delicious and satisfying breakfast on Oxford Street? This is where its at! Not only delicious but wont break the bank either considering its the Westend and all. With its wide range of tasty options and chic atmosphere, it’s the perfect spot to start your day off right.
I opted for the English breakfast and boy did they deliver a hearty breakfast! The eggs were light, buttery and fluffy, served with bacon, sausage, hash browns and some beans on the side! My husband went for the eggs benedict.
Both breakfast options were a winner but I think mine brought the trophy home on this one. About half the tables were taken but we still managed to have a great experience even with just about 1 or 2 members of staff serving.
The staff was attentive, food was amazing. We were seated on the main area and not the raised floor which offers views of Cavendish Square Gardens.
