Tab x Tab had been one of the brunch spots that was on my list for a while. Finally finding the time, I took a quiet morning walk towards Nottinghill/Westbourne Grove to check out this highly rated place.
By way of background, Tab x Tab is an independent coffee shop, operated by a husband and wife team specialising in premium brunch and specialty coffee. They have burst into the London speciality coffee scene in 2017 and have been gaining lots of positive reviews. The interior, whilst not particularly massive, felt spacious with its high ceilings. It has a really relaxed vibe there, featuring dark wood decor that oozes of a laidback yet sophisticated touch.
It was already pretty busy as I arrived for breakfast on a Saturday. I managed to pick out a window seat looking out to the streets and their outdoor tables.
Widely considered one of the top coffee houses in London, I was extremely excited about getting my morning coffee fix at Tab x Tab.
Good latte art is always a positive sign to start with. The coffee was smooth to taste and rich texture. Additionally, it’s definitely noteworthy about their ceramics, where each coffee cup was shaped and handmade by KANA. This is in effort from the Tab x Tab duo in featuring local artists and you can actually purchase these ceramics from the shop as well.
Mushrooms & Scrambled Eggs Toast (£11)
This isn’t my usual go-to brunch item but the other dishes didn’t necessarily pop out to me so I ended up going with it. But I was so glad I did!
Perhaps I wasn’t expecting a huge amount so I was thoroughly surprised by the rich flavours the dish offered. To start off, the seaweed topping on the scrambled eggs was a pleasant surprise. I certainly wasn’t expecting it and it was delightfully oozing of umami flavours. The mushrooms were buttery and savoury as well with a lovely onion-and-garlicky touch from the chives.
…if I need to describe my experience at Tab x Tab in one word, I would say quality. They no doubt offer quality food, quality coffees, and a lovely setting as well. Personally, I really liked the earthy touch against the sophisticated dark wood tone. It’s a very chilled spot, and certainly a neighbourhood gem that’s worth watching out for.
Not halal. Vegetarian options available.
