It’s tough to figure out what’s going on inside The London Plane at first. Is it a restaurant? Is it a larder/grocery? Is it a bakery? Is it a wine shop? Is it a florist? Is it a classroom? The answer is yes. Yes, it is all of these things.
We’d be here for another three days if we dug super deep and explored every single thing that this place does well (hint: it’s basically everything), so instead, we’re going to take a look at a single section of their food menu.
It’s safe to say that Seattle’s right in the middle of egg season (just look in the seasonal aisle at your local grocery store if you don’t believe us), but we aren’t here talk about the Cadbury variety. We want to talk about that old school breakfast staple, and take a look at how The London Plane’s cooking them up right.
Hit this place up for breakfast, and there’s a good chance (no guarantees though, they’re always mixing it up) that a section of the menu is going to look like this:
All of these are rad. Seriously. You cannot go wrong picking any of these menu items. Our faith in the unwavering awesomeness of this place is so strong that once we ordered the soft boiled one with dukkah and we didn’t even know what dukkah was (FYI, they very politely explained to us that it’s an Egyptian mixture of herbs, nuts, and spices).
So here’s what you do to maximize your time/egg consumption at The London Plane. 1) Go to this place for breakfast and take a friend. 2) You order the eggs. 3) Make your friend order a pastry. 4) Mooch bites from their plate while you fiercely guard your own.
It’s rude, but it’ll be worth it.
