Inspired by the Grand Cafés of Mittel-Europe, The Delaunay is an all-day café-restaurant from Corbin & King; the team behind The Wolseley. Located on the corner of Aldwych & Drury Lane. The Delaunay’s inspiration derives from the Grand Cafés of Vienna, Prague and Budapest, and as such has a fittingly glamorous Art Deco interior with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The marble floors, brass fittings and high ceilings, as well as the waistcoated waiters, contribute to a sense of magnificence and occasion.
Breakfast at The Delaunay offers a menu that has something for everyone. A wide choice of classic breakfast dishes include Viennoiserie, eggs, cereals, yoghurts, porridge, pancakes, smoothies and seasonal juices. Or, start your day like the Viennese with a Classic Viennese Breakfast of smoked ham, salami, artisan gouda, boiled eggs and rye bread. If you’re after something you wouldn’t be likely to have at home, The Delaunay breakfast specialities include kedgeree with a poached egg, grilled kippers with mustard butter and oatmeal soufflé with apricot & peach compote, a showstopper which required 20 minutes to prepare.
No matter your time frame, The Delaunay has breakfast dishes to suit – whether you are just coming by for toast and marmalade before starting your working day or fancy staying longer for a full English over a pot of tea, you will be made to feel just as welcome. On the weekend, The Delaunay serves their particularly popular brunch, featuring buttermilk pancakes, omelettes, avocado on toast and smoked salmon with scrambled eggs.
Adjacent to the restaurant is the Delaunay Counter, a traditional Viennese cafe serving hot drinks, viennoiserie, and freshly prepared breakfasts.
