Last Sunday I visited Babel for brunch. I’d been there before for a glass of wine, but hadn’t really registered that they served food too.
Complete with comfy sofas the place has a very relaxed feel and the decor reflects, as they say, the nature of Babel. Multi-lingual and multi-style, but the eclectic mix works well. The menus also come within vintage books, which still had the handwritten notes at the front when they were given as presents, which was a unique touch.
I opted for the halloumi wrap which was great. The halloumi was done just how i like it, with a good crispy edge. The others went for a traditional English breakfast and they weren’t disappointed.
The only slightly negative comment? My friend’s teapot was actually smaller than the cup and saucer it came with, which seemed rather odd, but we all had a good laugh about it. So, though a slight downside, it definitely made our group happy (simple things..).
It’s not too pricey, for a meal and a drink you’re looking between £8-£12. It won’t break the bank but it’s not a budget stop either, however, if you’re looking for something a bit quirkier than the run of the mill bar or the spoons hangover brunch, I’d recommend it as worth a stop by.
