Since I have gotten immersed in designing all things chocolate related for Desir du Chocolat, I spend quite a reasonable amount of time on my days off work, at their studio. So it is only natural that I check out all that is interesting in the vicinity. The closest one to start with, was The Proud Archivist. Situated only 5 minutes away and sat by Regents Canal, it is the perfect place for breakfast or brunch. It is particularly pleasant when it is sunny to be sat on the tables outside with a view of the canal and curious passers-by.
A gallery, restaurant, café and bar, this space is bright, spacious and entertaining.
The food was decent with nicely poached eggs for Eggs Benedict and pancake was my least favourite.
Croque monsieur was weirdly served with nachos
Nice view of the canal
Great location and a nice cafe with a great space to hangout. A great place to have drinks.
Food was decent but can be better.
Will I return?
Yes, why not.
