Something savoury, something new, something sweet. Here are 5 new openings in August to give a try with friends to enjoy in the sunshine!
Bob Lobster’s, London Bridge
Rating – 4.0
Opened – July 2018
Bob’s Lobster has predominantly focused on street food but now have their first base opened just by London Bridge station. There has been plenty of refurbishment around the station to include more restaurants and food outlets and Bob’s Lobster offers both a food and wine bar so great option for those looking for a drink near the river after work or somewhere to pop in and try if you have a delayed train! My main advise though? Try their Lobster Mac n Cheese.
💃 B R U N C H 💃 Three different types of Eggs Benedict 🥚 (ham, kale or lobster), Lobster Roll, Crab Kedgeree 🦀, Gluten-free Pancakes 🥞, Smashed avocado on toast 🥑 & so much more. Add to any dish 🍾B O T T O M L E S S 🍾drinks for 2 hours for only £20. Bermondsey is officially the best area for brunch, Londoners . . . 📸 Photo by @thegaztronome

Opening – 7th August 2018
If you’ve seen previous articles I’ve posted then you’ll know there is always one close to London Bridge/Borough I’ll find as right by where I work so always looking for new places! Very excited to try Borealis which opens this month by Borough station offering a Nordic based menu. Using British produce with a Scandinavian twist, this is surely not one to miss and I’ll definitely be heading over there soon.

Something sweet to end on. The beloved WA Café has now opened a second branch in Covent Garden after the popularity of their first in Ealing Broadway grew too big.
