Duck & Waffle

You know the old saying, “jack of all trades, master of none”? That could have so easily applied to Duck & Waffle, but in fact they win big at being a 24-hour restaurant, having excellent food and unrivalled views out across London.

Your brunch experience (to be enjoyed any time of day, including 4am if it takes your fancy) begins with a 40 second lift ride that whooshes you up to the 40th floor of 110 Bishopsgate and ends with you having your fill of their famous duck and waffle dish, or the sweet Full Elvis with PBJ, caramelised banana, Chantilly cream, and all the trimmings.
