Right before restaurants have to shut and working from home became fashionable, I managed to check out Crispin for my last meal out. Crispin has been on my radar for quite some time as I constantly see many Instagram posts about the place.

Weaving through the cobblestone alleyways in Spitalfields, at the end of the road stands a unique striking glass building structure that houses Crispin. Its interior is really bright and relaxing, and staff offering their warmest smiles to welcome you.

Crispin is an all-day and night cafe. Their breakfast menu offers a range of premium breakfast dishes and specialty coffees; whereas lunch and dinner often feature kitchen collaborations with other restaurants.

Three-Cheese Toastie (£10)

I went for the Cheese Toastie for breakfast, which has got three different kinds of cheese, onions and spring onions sandwiched in between crusty sourdough bread. It is then topped with a fried egg (with that luscious runny yolk dripping down the sandwich) and shaved Parmesan cheese.

The sandwich tasted as good as it looks. It’s not overly cheesy, with just the right amount and richness. The egg on top added a moreish finishing touch and the whole sandwich combo was a luscious treat.

Latte (£2.8)

Boasting themselves in serving amazing speciality coffee from well-regarded Brixton’s Assembly Coffee, I’ve got fairly high expectations in order.

The verdict? The coffee was not bad at all. It was aromatic, smooth and velvety to taste. However, personally, I find it not quite strong enough. It’s still good though!

In summary…

…I find Crispin quite the delightful breakfast spot. The food’s great and comes with a good portion. If you’re looking for a good breakfast spot, Crispin is definitely one worth checking out.
