With moody landscapes adorning the walls and beautiful dark wood furniture, Abuelo is a haven you would least expect to find in the often bustling, sometimes manic, Covent Garden. The family-style dining table makes an ideal spot for a supper club, but the South American meets Australian coffee house is just as punchy for brunch or breakfast. The menu is far from the usual avo on toast – think seriously pimped-up eggs, slow cooked beef arepas, pulled pork croque monsieur and salads to excite even the salad-averse. Huevos divorciados was a vibrant combo of poached eggs on labneh with chimichurri, a bright herby salsa and a sweet red pepper sauce, dusted liberally with paprika. Shakshuka fans will adore the baked eggs with sweet potato and beetroot hash, balanced with a generous dollop of chipotle mayo (£13). Abuelo’s Antipodean roots shine through with its four brews of coffee – La Laguna Colombian, a guest bean (from Costa Rica during our visit), a Peruvian pour over and Swiss water Cafetalera Honduran decaf. Go big and get the uber-healthy green smoothie too – it’s a fiver, but is eminently drinkable, slightly sweet and served in a pitcher-like glass. Whether you’re hungry for delicious, bold brunch options or craving a caffeine hit by way of WC2E, Abuelo is a go-go.
