Step Six: where to dine at 3am with a view of London

13 Nov

Are you an early bird or a night owl? At Duck and Waffle, it doesn’t matter.

The restaurant and bar are open 24/7, so you can go first thing in the morning for breakfast, during the afternoon for cocktails at sunset, or for drunken-dining after a night out.

But that isn’t the best thing . To get to Duck and Waffle, you zoom up to the 40th floor of Heron Tower, and dine with a sky-high view. Like the Gods.

We went for breakfast and as I’m not a massive duck fan, I steered clear of the eponymous signature dish and went for the safe nutella and banana waffles. My sister ordered the beans on toast, again pretty standard (a.k.a. boring), I thought. But the restaurant works on an eclectic ethos. They added bacon jam to the beans, inventively mixing sweet and savoury, and cooked the waffles deliciously soft and glazed the bananas in honey.

Check out the results. Beautiful. Almost unrecognizable.

Considering the location and kick-ass view of the gherkin, the menu is surprisingly good-value with breakfast ranging from £6 -15. Cocktails and drinks are a bit more, but you won’t be shooed away at midnight. During the day they serve sharing platters and main dishes such as mussels and rib-eye steak.
