Food lifestyle

13th October, 2016 | No Comments

You’ve probably heard it said, that you shouldn’t mix business with pleasure..well, you shouldn’t believe everything you hear.

I’m in the habit of mixing both business and pleasure, vigorously and often.Whenever I have a meeting in London, I take the opportunity to try a new restaurant, brasserie or the like, partly for business mainly for culinary pleasure.

Granted, Surrey has many quaint tea spots, but there’s nothing like a vibrant London pitstop to get your creative juices flowing.

Im a Surrey girl through and through, but there is something special about Kensington. Ive had many working lunches in the borough and with many tea rooms and bistros nearby, its a failsafe for meeting clients or friends.

Today my meeting brought me to Aubaine. While it was a very productive meet, the highlight was the food, (priorities eh).

The little french restaurant is so pretty. It has a vintage, country feel  with rustic furniture and magenta orchids. The atmosphere is quintessentially French, mellow and chic, so it was ideal for a quick afternoon meeting. They offer all day dining, personally I think they are great for brunch or a light lunch, and you just have to sample the delicious  patisserie. I only wish they would offer a bit more for the gluten freers of us in the world. Never the less I had tea and cakes (eat now pay later situation) and all was right with the world.

Next time you’re in the area, have a little wander over to Aubaine, they are also in Selfridges, Mayfair, Brompton Road and a few others are dotted around London and Dubai.
