Gazette; Balham

We drove up to Balham on Saturday to buy some meat from the excellent Chadwicks and as I had paid for extra parking we decided to have a late breakfast at Gazette. I had been to it before with my brother and promised my wife a different take on the traditional fry up. She wasn't dissapointed. The place may be tiny but it turns out great looking and tasting food. I had eggs wrapped in bayonne ham and emental deep fried served with a salad, my wife had croque monsieur and chips. It was lovely and set us up nicely for the rest of the day. However my favourite are the freshly baked Madeleine's. The service is friendly and efficient, we waited a little while for our food but it was really busy. You can see into the kitchen and the two chefs did not stop for a minute. It's a hard working place with a lot of charm that deserves to do well.
